FROM THE BACK OF THE BOX:
Learning how to be a good sport can be hard for little monsters! When Elmo takes a game of Hot Potato too seriously, he hurts Abby’s feelings. Can Leela help Elmo learn that winning isn’t everything? Then it’s on to the court for some hoops! Abby uses magic to up Elmo’s basketball game, but is being good better than being himself? Includes the Clippers’ Blake Griffin talking about “champions,” Elmo the Musical: Athlete!, plus The Worm Games, and more in over 2 hours of fun! Let the games begin!
FROM THE BACK OF MY BRAIN:
“Be A Good Sport” is about how kids should be competitive, but not too competitive. After all, it’s just a game! A game that is meant to be won, but you also have to learn the politics of interpersonal dynamics as a young tyke. Street ain’t got no time for a youngster that don’t know how to perform on the court of b-ball or life. I have no idea who any Muppet is post Jim Henson.
It’s nice to see Blake Griffin showing up to help out his boy Elmo. Griffin isn’t doing shit with the Clippers, so I guess he had time to help the ragging Muppet monster find a way to step up his game. Grover’s also in this, but he gets played one too many times for me to take him seriously. I know that Grover’s old now, but what kind of junk is that to show a kid. Grover is hood.
The DVD comes with activity pages, related material and some Worm Games clips. The A/V Quality is on par with most Sesame Street standard definition releases. However, it’s not anything amazing. But, who really expects a Sesame Street to blow away your home theater? In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to parents.
