Case Number 19464: Small Claims Court

SESAME STREET: P IS FOR PRINCESS

The Charge

Paul Rudd is on this. Best endorsement I can offer.

The Case

The good folks at the Street return with another mini-anthology. Hosted by Abby Cadabby, a "fairy in training," P is for Princess collects some of the daintier, pink-hued bits of the Sesame Street universe and ties them together with a real pretty bow.

Abby kicks thing off with an exclamation point as she, another weird-looking alien princess creature, and a penguin hang out with Paul Rudd. He's pretending to be a confused prince and gives it his all. In fact, he gets so into his role, he kisses the feet of the penguin princess while she's stuck in a garbage can. What dedication to the craft.

As the DVD advances we get some stuff with Abby, Elmo, Gordon, and a rendition of "The Princess and the Elephant" with Natalie Portman. And that's your 45 minutes.

It's a brief but fun collection, and Paul Rudd's stuff stands out. For the early childhood educators in the readership, the info on the disc case informs me that the emphasis is on pretending, usage of the imagination and, of course, the letter P. In addition, you'll get two episodes of the animated series Abby's Flying Fairy School starring Miss Cadabby herself.

The Verdict

Fly off little felt fairy and spread good cheer.
