Sesame Workshop and Genius Products are planning to release a swashbuckeling new DVD entitled "Elmo and the Bookaneers: Pirates Who Love to Read". This all-new DVD is planned to hit DVD store shelves on April 21, 2009. The DVD features Elmo along with special guest Tina Fey (as the leader of the Bookaneers).
In this new 41-minute feature, the Bookaneers come ashore to Sesame Street, and they want to plunder Elmo's bookshelf. When Elmo finds out how much they love to read, he can't wait to become a bookaneer himself. But can he pass the test and help them find their treasure? The DVD will also include an episode of the new claymation series "Bert and Ernie's Great Adventures" wherein the duo sail the sea in search of treasure. Plus, Abby Cadabby sings about all the words she treasures in the song "I Love Words"! The DVD will also include "Elmo's World: Books," a special installment of "Elmo's World" where Elmo invites viewers to learn all about reading and books.
So be sure to keep you eyes out for this exciting new DVD release, and I will be sure to keep you updated with more information on all the upcoming Sesame Street home video titles as more information continues to become available.
