Computer Caper

Fall 2002 Home Video
Ages: 2 - 6 yrs.
Producer: Sesame Workshop
VHS Price: $12.98
Such a sign of the times! Telly gets an email from a “Mystery Friend” and must guess who it is. In tried and true Sesame Street fashion, live action footage is interspersed with the in-studio Street scenes. The caper is truly fun to watch and play along as Telly goes over his clues to figure out who is sending the emails. Everyone likes a mental challenge and this one’s perfect for young viewers. For a toddler’s video devoted entirely to a machine, albeit one that has changed our lives, Sesame Workshop has done a fine job of incorporating the computer into a story that’s compelling and fun and informative.
