The Charge

Have you heard the buzz?

The Case

Our pals at Da Street have put together bug-themed best-of collection, geared towards the rugrats who love creepy crawlies…or talking puppets. I guess that's everyone under the age of 8.

Firefly Fun and Buggy Buddies runs just south of 50 minutes and sports a wide selection of moments from Sesame Street's expansive vault. The common thread tying them all together is, obviously, bugs, with the heavy-hitting stars—Oscar, Big Bird, Telly, and money-maker Elmo—taking turns kicking it with insects made of felt.

Some of the fan favorites include Oscar's pet work, an episode of Elmo's World devoted entirely to bugs, and my favorite, a guest stint from Molly Shannon as a bug shelter worker.

The stuff is top-notch, as you'd expect, given the long-running quality of Sesame Street. Since Firefly Fun is essentially a clip show detracts somewhat from the luster, but if your kiddo is all about the bugs, then this disc makes big sense. It's breezy, colorful, fun edu-tainment.

And that's all I have to say about that. Full frame, 2.0 stereo, and some classic Sesame Street segments round out the disc.

The Verdict

Not Guilty.
