Nickname: "The Muppet Work for a Job"
Logo: Against a sky background, we see a close-up of the Sesame Street sign. The camera zooms out, and we see Big Bird, Elmo, Snuffy, Cookie Monster, Bert, Ernie, the Count, and Zoe building something. Everyone except Elmo (who is standing on a ladder) walks away, then Elmo raises some multi-colored wood, which stretches out to read "HOMe VidEO" with a smiley face in the first O. Elmo smiles and giggles at the end.
FX/SFX: The SS Muppets building "Home Video", Elmo revealing "Home Video".
Variants:1. In 2000, the "CTW" was removed from the top of the sign, leaving the top of the sign blank. 2. On the 2000 reprint VHS of Elmopalooza, "123" was added to the top, replacing "CTW"
Music/Sounds: A remix of the Sesame Street theme, and we hear Zoe giggling, Cookie Monster saying "This so very exciting!", Big Bird saying "Hey that looks good!", and finally after "HOMe VidEO" is shown, Elmo saying "Yeah! Sesame Street Home Video!" and giggling.
Availability: On Sony Wonder videos (and some early DVDs) of Sesame Street specials, such as Elmopalooza. However in the UK, it was seen on a few mid-90's VHS releases from Disney.
Scare Factor: None; it's cute for those who aren't, especially little kids.
