    Neither of those two segments are included on the DVD.

    Well, I just found that, although the opening is included, the closing credits are cut.

    I've seen that the next Sesame Street DVD is coming August 8, and will be the first Elmo's World DVD to contain episodes of the new format. It'll be titled Elmo's Wonderful World (ever since I saw the new opening, which has that among the lyrics, I've felt that the reformatted segments should have been titled Elmo's Wonderful World).

    I wondered if maybe it would have all 25 episodes introduced this year. Muppet Wiki says that it'll be an hour, so with them being five minutes each, that'll be 12 episodes, so not the whole series yet. Then again, there have been previous DVD releases that listed incorrect run times before (remember when it was announced that The Best of Elmo 2 was to be 27 minutes?).

    I got the Elmo Loves Animals DVD today, and it's interesting. The half-hour episodes from season 46 are pretty much presented as half-hour episodes, with the extra segments following the street stories, while earlier street stories are just presented as stand-alone street stories, without extra segments. The DVD actually opens with the season 46 opening (and the number 4603), but the opening and closing isn't presented with all the half-hour episodes. Also absent are the season 46 cold openings and the PBS outros.

    Well, on August 29, there's going to be a new DVD called Trick or Treat on Sesame Street, obviously Halloween-themed (and two months early). I think this will be the first time since Warner Home Video got the video rights that they put out two new Sesame Street releases in a single month (to be fair, one comes out near the beginning and this one comes out at the very end of the month).

    I forgot to say before, when I talked about the announcement of the Elmo's Wonderful World DVD, but that one will contain two bonus episodes of The Furchester Hotel, marking the shows first region 1 DVD release. I think I said this sooner, but episodes of that show should have been a bonus feature on the Elmo and Cookie Monster DVD (since those two are regulars).

    When I saw this question, I thought Tomato the Musical was one of the segments produced for season 46, one that had to be shortened for broadcast. Then I looked at the Elmo the Musical guide at Muppet Wiki and saw that it was broadcast before the show was shortened to a half hour (and before Elmo the Musical segments were edited).

    But the DVD does have an Elmo the Musical segment. I don't really know off-hand if it's edited (though I did see it on television, I think when it premiered). I'll have to watch the DVD and time the segment to see it's length.

    ETM: Prince wasn't edited on the DVD.

    I just saw that Once Upon a Sesame Christmas will be released on October 10.

    I recently got the Once Upon a Sesame Street Christmas DVD. The special was good. Interestingly, when new DVDs are announced, we get to see the cover and full info on the bonus features within days of the announcement, but with this release, they didn't announce the features until closer to the release date.

    I had thought that Christmas Eve on Sesame Street would make a good bonus feature on this (even though I already have the special), but the bonus special/video is A Sesame Street Christmas Carol, which in thinking about it is a better choice, as it includes clips from most of the previous Christmas specials (and it's the only one I had not seen, not counting that Christmas concert thing).

    In video news, it's been announced that the next release will be The Best of Elmo 4, coming February 13. And for once, I actually don't care so much about knowing what will be included this time. Don't really know off-hand what Elmo segments are left (not counting '80s/early-'90s segments), but I have a feeling that it'll contain street stories (I think the description mentions those), I also wouldn't be surprised if it was a showcase for Elmo's World (new or old) and Elmo: The Musical.

    And since Warner Home Video got the Sesame Street license, I think we're currently at the longest gap between video releases (about four months), unless there's an exclusive release coming out somewhere that's not announced (a number of initial Target/Wal-Mart exclusives weren't announced before their releases).

    Can't believe I didn't report the news here sooner, but in March, there will be Love to Learn Vol. 2.

    Hmm, I wonder if there's a new trend here, giving volume or sequel numbers to previous releases. We got Singing with the Stars 2 two years ago, and now we're getting Love to Learn Vol. 2, and of course there's going to be The Best of Elmo 4. I'd really like to see a "Best of Friends 2" (though I wouldn't be surprised if it just focused on the current "main 7").
