Sesame Street's resident fairy-in-training, Abby Cadabby, and Elmo embark on a magical storybook adventure in Abby In Wonderland, from Genius Products and Sesame Workshop, the non-profit educational organization behind Sesame Street, poofing onto DVD September 30th.  Directed by Emmy Award-winning puppeteer and producer, Kevin Clash, Abby-thusiasts will slide down the rabbit hole and follow her into a whimsical world in the Sesame version of the children's classic, Alice in Wonderland.

Sesame Workshop has always provided children with an educational foundation and love of learning through content that is research-based and age appropriate. Throughout this adventure, preschoolers are presented with important skills such as task persistence, reading and storytelling, relational concepts, counting and letter sounds. 

"We wanted to create a DVD that children of all ages would love and stays true to the timeless story of Alice in Wonderland," adds Kevin Clash, Senior Creative Advisor, Sesame Workshop. "We were able to take the Sesame Street Muppets© and mold them into the legendary Lewis Caroll characters for our preschool audience and their families to enjoy."

Cookie Monster and Abby Abby, Rosita and The Count

When Abby falls asleep and is dreaming, Elmo transforms into a frantic, fuzzy red rabbit and she follows him into an enchanted "Wonderland."  Abby is persistent as she pursues the elusive rabbit that, inadvertently, has pocketed her magical wand.  On her quest, she encounters an incredible cast of fantastical characters such as a bilingual flower, "Rose"-ita (Rosita), The "Counter"-pillar (The Count), The Cheshire Cookie Cat (Cookie Monster), Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum (Bert and Ernie), The Mad Hatter (Grover), The Mouse (Zoe) and the cranky Grouch of Hearts (Oscar).  Without the assistance of her usual fairy magic, Abby must rely on her knowledge of rhyming to defeat the Grouch of Hearts, reclaim her wand and find her way back to Sesame Street. 

A special treat for toddlers and preschoolers, Abby In Wonderland, has great new songs and will be available for the suggested retail price of $14.93

Sesame Street's fairy Abby Cadabby, falls asleep and in her dream, follows a Red Rabbit (Elmo) down a rabbit hole and into a "Wonderland," where she encounters quirky and whimsical characters including The Counterpillar (The Count), The Cheshire Cookie Cat and Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum (Bert and Ernie).  She also attends a silly "T" party presided over by a Mad Hatter (Grover) who also can be a "sad" hatter or a "glad" hatter with the change of a hat.  Will Abby find her missing magic wand and be able to get back to Sesame Street, or does the Grouch of Hearts (Oscar) have other plans?
