The Charge

#$%& off, binkie.

The Case

Are you at your wits' end with your hopeless addiction to your pacifier? No matter how hard you try, no matter how much sheer will you try to summon to keep you away from the sinful embrace of that diabolical binkie, you just can't let it go? We've all been there, brother.

But like all of the world's problems, the solution is simple—and furry. It's Elmo, the omnipresent Muppet educational aid, here to help wean you (or your child, of course) off the dreaded pacifier. In this collection, you get a handful of "Big Kids Stories," segments from the Sesame Street vault excavated to celebrate milestones in your kiddo's development.

The highlights:

• "Baby Elmo and his pacifier"
While trying to help a fellow Sesame Street resident shed his pacifier habit, Elmo recounts the multiple challenges he faced when trying to kick the habit and the different solutions he attempted.

• "Abby learns to ride a bike"
Abby is dying to learn how to ride her tricycle and she pleads with Elmo for help. Elmo shrewdly delegates this favor to Gordon, who Abby magically beams out of his apartment, despite the fact he was taking a bath. Luckily, Gordon has been dealing with this crap for like thirty years.

• "Baby Bear gets a haircut"
Baby Bear needs to go in for a trim, but he's terrified of sitting in the barber's chair for some reason. His pals coach him up and he eventually conjures the courage to let a strange man trim his fur bangs.

Sesame Street: Bye-Bye, Pacifier! is fifty-one minutes worth of early childhood development puppetry, and it's as solid as you'd expect from the Sesame Workshop. The disc is light on special guest stars, but who cares—if your son pitches that pacifier because Elmo told him to, that's a win.

The specs: standard definition full frame, Dolby 2.0 stereo, and an old-school clip called "Proud" from when Sesame Street was evidently overrun by hippies.

The Verdict

Not Guilty. ((suck suck))
