Sesame Street is renowned for creating fun, educational content for children. In its 38th season, it is also one of the longest running TV programmes of all time.
This selection of clips is around the theme of body parts. Some clips are based around songs that encourage children to sing and dance, while others are based on conversations between various cast members.
Young children will get a lot of enjoyment and learning from the presentation.
The PAL disc is presented at the original full frame aspect ratio of 1.29:1.
Overall the picture quality is quite good, but depending on the clip it can vary a little bit. Newer clips look great, some of the older ones are showing their age.
The picture is relatively sharp and for the most part looks pretty good except for some minor pixelation. There is no grain or low level noise. Black levels are good as are shadow details.
Colours are bright and look good.
There are no obvious MPEG artefacts, but when there is movement in a panning scene the image can be a little jumpy. Nothing too distracting though.
There are no subtitles available.
There is only one audio track available, English Dolby Digital 2.0 (192Kb/s).
The audio is perfectly fine for this kind of presentation.
Dialogue comes across loud and clear.
The musical pieces sound good and balanced.
The sync is fine.
There is no surround or sub-woofer use, but the presentation is fine without them.
|Surround Channel Use|
No extras. Unless you count the menu or scene selection options.
NOTE: To view non-R4 releases, your equipment needs to be multi-zone compatible and usually also NTSC compatible.
Both versions seem identical, so lets call it a tie.
Sesame Street is an enduring family classic. This DVD would make a welcome addition to any home with young children.
The video is fine.
The audio is good.
No special features, but will your 3 year old mind?
