    Synopsis


    Sesame Street Presents: Follow that Bird
    The first film to be adapted from the popular children's television series Sesame Street, Follow That Bird follows the story of Big Bird after a social worker (Sally Kellerman) takes him away from Sesame Street to live with a family of birds in Illinois. Unhappy in his new surroundings, Big Bird attempts to hitchhike back home to Sesame Street. Over the course of his journey he meets a number of odd and charming characters, in the form of cameos by Chevy Chase, Sandra Bernhard, Waylon Jennings, Dave Thomas and John Candy. The music for this engaging family film was written by Van Dyke Parks and Lennie Niehaus. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

      My daughter is two and loves the sesame street characters. So I was excited to find there first movie, from when I was little! This was a theatrical movie so the production value is better than the show. Also, this came out in the 80s so it is not all about Elmo! All your favorite characters are here with the story centering around Big Bird. It is a cute lesson about what home truly is.

      I Loved This Movie As a Kid

      As a kid who was both raised on and loved WTTW programs like 'Sesame Street,' and 'Mr. Rogers,' it's probably no surprise that I liked 'Follow That Bird.' This is a great movie that the kids are sure to enjoy. Full-screen, with not many bonus features, but the dvd does allow you to jump to song-related segments of the film rather easily. Recommended!

      One of those childhood movies that I hope our baby son begins to enjoy as we did. He enjoys watching Sesame Street and recognizes some of the muppets already, so this movie should be a great treat.
