    there are so many scenes i am looking for

    -six silly sailors
    -boy girl and Jelly beans
    -up up and away
    -help
    -the word is love
    -windy
    -yellow submarine
    -gone with the wind

    also does anyone remember ernie singing to cookie monster "if i knew you were coming id have baked a cake"

    there was another one with a little girl and her grandparents bring her these big life sized jigsaw puzzles of a boy and a girl in swimsuits, and at the end she says "look at my silly brother. he thinks hes a jigsaw puzzle too!" and he is laying in the puzzle

    id LOVE to see them again!

    I'd do anything legal, moral, and physically possible to get my hands on the rest of Season 1. Unfortunately, we have as much chance of that as we do of seeing Kermit in a new Sesame Street sketch. Releasing over 100 hour-long episodes on DVD costs a ton of money, more than Sesame Workshop is probably willing to spend. Not to mention the money they'd have to spend getting legal rights to use all those popular-song covers....if the DVD sets were priced to cover all the expenses SW had, they'd probably run into three figures a set!

    I would so love to see the six silly sailors cartoon from my youth. I thought that was the best of the SS classic cartoons.

    Maybe if we can get some Season 1 episodes on Itunes, it won't be bad after all.

    I'd rather see some of these things on iTunes, even Muppet Babies on iTunes would be nice! :D

    Not everyone has an iPod or can afford to subscribe to iTunes; if Sesame Workshop wanted to make a whole season's worth of older episodes available, they'd probably go with the format most likely to get customers (and DVDs/players are cheaper than iPods, on the whole).

    I tend to agree- it would also be a pretty large collection. Even if they somehow got ten episodes on each disk, that's still about 13 disks! But perhaps in the future, putting all those episodes together will not be quite as big a job (or as expensive) as it would be today, and maybe then we can enjoy full-season sets. Here's hoping!

    A few of the musical numbers have turned up on youtube last year. They were dubbed in German and Hebrew, but were only up for a short time before they got pulled. But for an old-timer like me, it was great to at least see the visuals again after a few decades.

    I am hoping just as much as you are to see some of these clips again, but I know Sesame Workshop has to cut through a lot of legal red tape to make it happen. Ain't lawyers great?:smirk:

    Not only would does Sesame pose a challenge in being a daily show meaning that it would take a heckuva lot of dvd's to get all the episodes from a season to fit, but season 1 in particular would be hard to release in a box type format given how insanely repetitive the first season was. Not only for having a relatively small number of segments they could repeat (being new and not having a back collection) but the educational staff wanted to repeat several things on a daily and weekly basis - if we could somehow manage to watch the first season episodes back to back in order as adults, we may find ourselves doing a lot of fast forwarding!

    Exactly! I've fast forwarded through the episodes I've gotten on VHS over the years.

    In spite of all the repeats we'd skip, I'd still love to see a whole early season's worth of episodes (especially one that I was too young to remember the first time around). The only way I could see 130 full hours getting released on DVD, though, would be as a multi-volume set...which would take decades to finish producing the way things are now. (Thirteen ten-disc collector sets? Whew!)

    I think getting an entire season of Sesame Street would be near impossible; There's over 100 episodes per season! I could see Season 34 to now on DVd since those seasons are short, but I doubt they would release those seasons first.
