As I announced earlier, a DVD set of classic Sesame is on its way this fall. As the release approaches, more information has surfaced. Sesame Workshop plans to release "Sesame Street: Old School - Volume 1", a nostalgic-based collector's box set, on October 24, 2006. The three-disc DVD box set is full of classic Sesame Street, focusing exclusively on the first five years (1969-1974).
The DVD set will include five complete hour-long episodes from the series. In addition to that there are over 2-hours of bonus segments (45+ segments). These segments including The original pilot pitch for the show (available for the first time anywhere); appearances by James Earl Jones, Jesse Jackson, Johnny Cash, and Jackie Robinson; the classic songs "Rubber Duckie", "I Love Trash" and "C Is for Cookie"; and such original animation clips as "The King of Eight", "Ladybug Picnic", "The Alligator King" and "Pinball Number Count".
The total running time for the three-disc set is over 7-hours in total.
The DVD is being distributed by Sony/Wonder and is already up for pre-ordering on many sites (such as Amazon.com) for just around $30. The set is being dubbed "Volume 1" so hopefully more "Old School" sets will follow (however none have been announced or confirmed yet). I'll keep you posted as more develops on the DVD revisiting of the world's most famous street.
