More About Jim Henson, Frank Oz, Caroll Spinney, Sonia Manzano, Loretta Long, Jim Henson, Bob Schwarz & Eva Saks
Jim Henson first started his career on a local TV show Sam and Friends in Washington D.C in 1958. In 1969, he formed the core of the children's program, Sesame Street, which continues to air today and has been shown in more than a hundred countries around the world. Henson's creations were soon seen on The Muppet Show, which aired in 1976 through 1981 and later on Fraggle Rock, Jim Henson's Muppet Babies, and Jim Henson's The Storyteller. The Muppets moved to star in six feature films: The Muppet Movie, The Great Muppet Caper, The Muppets Take Manhattan, The Muppet Christmas Carol, Muppet Treasure Island, and Muppets From Space. In addition to making Muppet movies, Henson also brought two remarkably original fantasy films to the big screen, The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth. Henson died in May of 1990, survived by his wife and five children.
Reviews - What do customers think about Sesame Street: Guess That Shape and Color?
Daughter likes it but not her favorite Feb 8, 2008
I purchased this for my 2 year old daughter to help her learn her colors and while she likes it (she likes EVERYTHING with Elmo), it isn't her favorite. If I had it to do over again, I probably would have skipped it. The program is a little strange in that it is a game-show format and they created the host to be just as annoying as they are in real life. Not so enjoyable to watch and I find my daughter just isn't into it. Maybe she will be later.
love it Jul 23, 2007
I love this dvd and so does my 22 month old son....he always comes to me and asks to put"shapes" on and then watches the whole thing
Great DVD for avid little learners! May 19, 2007
First, I must say that I hate to see negative reviews for this product! My son is almost 2 and absolutely loves this DVD. Before Grandma bought this, we had been reading a few books on shapes and my son was catching on pretty quickly. I think that this program is helping to reinforce his newly acquired knowledge--he is recognizing circles, squares, triangles and ovals in everyday objects like plates, tiles, etc. I have to admit that the muppet gameshow host featured here is a little annoying, but so are the human ones at one time or another! I think that he adds to the fun of the show. Also parents, we need to remember that DVDs such as these are not really for our entertainment and try to watch through the eyes of our little sponges. I recommend this to kids who are hungry to learn and have parents that are excited to help.
My Elmo Fanatic 21 Month Old Will Not Watch This... Apr 13, 2007
...and I am fine with that! This is terribly annoying. The announcer is loud and frantic. Not entertaining. In fact, it is so chaotic that my daughter gets uncomfortable and leaves the room. This is the child who comes running when she hears the beginning of Elmo's World. Running. This film has her running in the opposite direction. I'd skip it. I'm selling mine on ebay soon...real cheap...
Entertaining and Educational Sep 29, 2006
My 2-year-old loves this DVD. She knows her colors pretty well, but she didn't know her shapes until after watching this video. It's the only one she has wanted to watch for 2 weeks now. It basically has a series of "gameshows" that Elmo and Zoe play to find squares and healthy foods in different colors. Worth buying!
