Background: The Sesame Songs Home Video label was created in 1990 by Random House Home Video. Under this label, eight VHS programs were produced from 1990-1993. These programs were compilations of Sesame Street songs and skits. AfterSony Wonder obtained the rights to Sesame Street, a ninth VHS, Big Bird Sings! was released in 1995. This VHS included the logo, but was not an official Sesame Songs release.


Nicknames: "Photo of Cookie Monster, Bert, and Ernie Singing A Song", "Sesame Songs Home Video", "Sesame Street Songs Home Video" "Bert, Ernie, and Cookie Monster", "A Musical Trio"

Logo: Cookie Monster, Bert (holding a small microphone), and Ernie appear above a blank Sesame Street sign with a purple musical eighth note at the top right. The note moves side to side as the words "SESAME SONGS" rise up letter by letter in white, followed by "HOME VIDEO" fading in below in yellow. The note stops, and several multicolored notes pop up around the screen and begin to dance. The words "SESAME SONGS HOME VIDEO" fade out to show the title of the program.

Trivia:Some of the VHS/Betamax releases, lids and reels are colored green, similar to the E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial VHS/Betamax.

FX/SFX: The words rising up and fading in, the musical notes appearing and dancing.

Music/Sounds: An instrumental version of "Sing", ending with a child saying "Sesame Songs presents... [title of program]!"

Music/Sounds Variant: On Sing-Along Earth Songs, Grover's voice reads the title.

Availability: Uncommon.
