Sesame Workshop and Genius Products are planning to release an environmental direct-to-DVD feature entitled "Sesame Street: Being Green". This all-new DVD will be released just in time for Earth Day, and will available wherever DVDs are sold on April 7, 2009. The DVD features Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Cookie Monster, Rosita and Telly; plus special guest Mr. Earth (played by actor Paul Rudd in a hilariously large costume).
In this new 45-minute special, Elmo and Abby pitch in to help Mr. Earth host Sesame Street's first Earth-a-Thon. Mr. Earth teaches Elmo and Abby how "it can be easy being green" by recycling, re-using, and conserving water and energy. But things get out of control when Abby, in her desire to help Elmo be more "green,” accidentally turns him the color green and can't remember how to change him back!
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.
