Sesame Street

Sesame Street Presents - The Street We Live On (W.T.) (#4057)

At the start of SESAME STREET's 35th season, the high-spirited red muppet, Elmo, learns more about the street on which he lives. With the help of his friend Grover, Elmo is seemingly transported through time to the Sesame Street that existed before he was born. In these flashback moments, Elmo meets Mr. Hooper, the man behind the name of that famous store; witnesses Maria and Luis' wedding day and the birth of their daughter Gabi; and experiences Gordon and Susan's adoption of Miles. The finale of the episode features Sesame Street's entire cast singing a new composition called "The Street We Live On." The story ends with Elmo's realization that he doesn't have to dream to find his friends on Sesame Street - all he has do to is run outside to be a part of this very happy family. Bill Irwin - as Mr. Noodle. In addition, "Dance Myself To Sleep," a star-studded music video, features guest celebrities performing their own dances, intercut with footage from the classic original Bert and Ernie "Dance Myself To Sleep" sketch. Among the celebrities appearing are Lily Tomlin, Whoopi Goldberg, Doris Roberts, Stockard Channing, Joshua Bell, Allison Janney, Ruben Studdard, Harvey Fierstein, Seth Green, and Julianne Moore.
