The Count is one of those childhood characters that sticks deep inside. Even after all these decades, whenever I have to say several numbers aloud, I end up impersonating the Dracula influenced Muppet. Now you can get the Count and his celebrity pals dealing with numbers on Sesame Street: Cool Counting Collection in June. This includes Elvis Costello and Feist. Thus after watching the DVD with your preschooler, you can have an excuse to play Elvis’ “Less Than Zero” in the car as you drive them to the carpool lane. Here’s the press release from Shout! Factory with all the details:
|SESAME STREET: COOL COUNTING COLLECTION|
ON DVD & DIGITAL JUNE 8, 2021
FROM SHOUT KIDS AND SESAME WORKSHOP
Los Angeles – On Sesame Street, you can count on your friends … and count with them, too! Sesame Street: Cool Counting Collection will be available on DVD and digital download on June 8, 2021 from Shout Kids and Sesame Workshop. Join Elmo, Abby, Cookie Monster, and more as they sing, play, and laugh their way from 1 to 20. Learning numbers has never been more fun—or more furry!
Animations, songs, and favorite moments from recent seasons make counting as easy as, well, 1-2-3! Celebrity friends help the little ones practice their numbers, too: Elvis Costello wants to count to 10, but he’s missing an important number; Feist sings about her favorite number 4; and Liam Neeson gets an acting lesson from Count von Count while they count to 20. The DVD is packed with over two hours of fun and comes complete with bonus features, including quintessential counting segments from Elmo’s World and Abby’s Flying Fairy School. Also included with the DVD is a Count with Elmo! mini-book for young fans.
