Sesame Street's celebrity DVD commemorates 35 years

Sony Wonder's got the right address for kidvid with it's newest direct-to-video Sesame Street release, What's the Name of That Song?, which arrives April 6 on VHS ($9.98) and DVD ($12.98).

The release celebrates the 35th anniversary of the children's show and features celebrity guest appearances from Maya Angelou, Wayne Brady, Katie Couric, The Dixie Chicks, Gloria Estefan, Diana Krall, Patti LaBelle, Nathan Lane, Conan O'Brian, Queen Latifah, REM, Ben Stiller, and Vanessa Williams among others.

Shot on location in New York City, What's The Name of That Song? follows "Super Grover" in his search to find one song that the whole world can sing together, which turns out to be the Sesame Street classic "Sing." On the way, Grover and his buddies snap out a few other favorites, including Bert's classic "Doin' the Pigeon."

Pre-order the What's the Name of That Song DVD.

DVD extras include a book insert with photos of the Muppets and song lyrics, interviews with the Muppets, a trivia game, four classic Sesame Street shorts and a parenting section, "Music Works Wonders," a 22-minute featurette that encourages children to explore, learn, create, and grow with music.

Also streeting April 6 are three debuts of other Sesame Street singalong programs, including Sing, Hoot & Howl With the Sesame Street Animals and Sesame Street Fiesta!, which features guest performances from Celia Cruz and Linda Ronstadt. All three DVDs are priced at $12.98.

Nov. 10 marks the 35th anniversary of "Sesame Street" and the show's new season begins on PBS two days before What's the Name of That Song? hits stores.
