    I have recently though of an idea. I am not sure if it would work or how good the idea is, but after this set get's released and we all know what's on it and how it is presented (as in whether there are full episodes or just classic clips, or both, or even if there are special features) we should make a list of what we'd most like to see on volume two (if there is one). The forty most-wanted skits could be counted and a list could be sent to Sesame Workshop and/ or Sony Wonder (with a link to this board to show that the votes really did come from more than just one person). If the sets include actual episodes, then we could send a list of the top 10 (or however many are included on the first set) episodes we'd most like to see included. If there are features we could lsit features we'd like and then list the top number of features (depending on the number of features included on the first set) most people asked for. I am not sure if it would be too late to do this for the first set (October is just four months away, and a lot of legal work was probably done before the set was announced).

    Really? Hey gtejeda... I'd be interested in knowing which character you portrayed. You can contact me via the forum's mailer.
    Hope to hear from you soon.

    When they release the Nostalgia set they should devote the first two discs to complete unaltered episodes. The third disc just featuring skits with the muppets. The last disc should be for bonus features.

    When they release the Nostalgia set, like Warner Brothers they release "The Golden Age of Looney Tunes" after that they sell this "Spotlight Collection" featuring cartoons from the last two discs. What Sesame Workshop could do is release two discs featuring discs with The Muppets. That way fans can certain skits. This is a much efficent way instead of releasing episodes featuring that paticular skit no segments get repeated. Here is what I am thinking of. I'll post more ideas later:

    1. Ernie eats Bert's Cookies.
    2. Ernie puts The Radio Knob on Bert.
    3. Cookie Monster and Ernie: Match Cookies.
    4. Ernie Borrow's Herbert Birdsfoot Vacum Cleaner.
    5. Grover and Herbert Birdsfoot: Over and Under.
    6. Kermit and Grover: Heavy and Light.
    7. Caveman Days: Grover Invents The Wheel
    8. Kermit and Grover: Long and Short.
    9. The Count and Cookie Monster Count and Eat Cookies.
    10. Ernie and Cookie Monster : Which is Which?
    11. Grover The Waiter: Simon Soundman.
    12. Kermit Demonstrate Begining, Middle, and End with a Cook book.
    13. Ernie and Lefty: Stop Sign.
    14. Kermit and Grover: Build a Snowman.
    15. Ernie and Bert Meet the Count.

    I am thinking there should be Audio Commentary on the following episodes.

    First Season Premeire : Frank Oz,Carrol Spinney,Bob McGarth,Loretta Long,and Jane Henson.

    Second Season Preimere: Jerry Nelson, Carol Spinney, and Bob McGrath.

    Third Season Preimere: Sonia Manzano, Bob Mc Grath, Loretta Long, Emilio Delgado , Frank Oz, Carrol Spinney and Jerry Nelson.

    Sixth Season Premiere: Roscoe Orman,, Bob Mc Grath, Sonia Manzano, Emilio Delgado, Caroll Spinney, and Jerry Nelson.

    I have been thinking, although Sesame Workshop confirmed in a few e-mails that this set is comming out, has Sesame Workshop made any official announcements outside of e-mails? I do believe this info, I just wish there would be an official press release.

    One thing I'm now wondering is if the vintage CPB tags and NET/PBS IDs would be left intact on a reissued complete episode.

    I have to agree with you here. I've tried to find other information outside of the emails reported on this forum and I've come up with *nothing*. Seems to me that they would be doing a lot more advertising since such a dvd set would probably be extremely popular - not just with collector's but with parents (or step-parents, like me! =D) - who want their children to enjoy Sesame Street the way it used to be, with the Elmo Factor turned down several notches.

    Not that I doubt that there will someday be a DVD release of Sesame Street, I just can't fathom that everything would be going smoothly as far as getting rights and whatnot sorted out for the projected release date in October without them advertising the set more...

    I hope I'm wrong. =/

    Ok, so i'm a little late here. When seeing the term nostalgic used, I also thought that these would be full episodes. How much nostalgia can you get from just skits? I do understand that due to some legalities that their backs may be against the wall in terms of releasing full episodes.. however, i hope that this will not always be the case.

    Also, the commentary idea is a must. That would indefinatly make up for not having full episodes. but something is always better than nothing.

    That info from Deep Discount is a bit more reassuring, though it doens't say what it's source is. The fact that it is called Sesame Street Old School Vol. 1 sounds appropiate considering that the next season will focus on starting school. Now I feel convinced that the set will include full episodes. I could be wrong, but now I feel that it will just be full episodes (and not just a selection of skits).

    I would still probally buy it even if it were skits, but come on! Our polls say 47 % want full uncut episodes.

    That's only 47% of people at MC who have happened to have seen this thread, though. Personally I don't want just uncut episodes because that takes up way too much disc space when you could have sooooooooooooooo many more skits and songs and classic SS moments on there.
