BURBANK, CA (December 6, 2017) – He is furry, red and loves to laugh; he is everyone’s favorite friendly monster; he is Elmo, and he is back for the fourth installment of his best moments on Sesame Street! The Best of Elmo 4 will be brought to DVD by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and Sesame Workshop on February 13, 2018. The Best of Elmo 4 will feature two hours of stories, songs and, silliness – which means hours of fun for little monsters everywhere. Available to own for $14.97 SRP, The Best of Elmo 4 also includes an episode from Season 47 of Sesame Street and an animated storybook, Elmo Loves You.
On The Best of Elmo 4, Elmo is back with hours of fun for his biggest (and littlest) fans. Join your favorite friendly monster for a trip down memory lane to revisit some of his best Sesame Street moments. But in Elmo’s World, wherever there is fun to be had, there are also lessons to be learned! In Elmo’s Sweet Ride, a -new episode from Season 47, Elmo teaches patience and sharing when he lets his pal Zoe take a ride on his scooter, waiting his turn while she practices and learns how to ride.
Elmo also makes some new friends along the way! He learns what it means to be enthusiastic from Mindy Kaling (The Office, The Mindy Project) when they dance with their friends, the chickens; he learns why skin comes in all different textures and shades of color from Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years A Slave, The Jungle Book, Star Wars: The Force Awakens); he throws a fiesta with Viola Davis (How To Get Away with Murder, Fences); he plays tug-of-war with Wendi McLendon-Covey (Bridesmaids, The Goldbergs) to learn the word “strenuous”; he busts a move with Jason Derulo; and he sings about books and reading with Pharrell Williams!
“We are thrilled to bring another collection of Elmo’s best moments to DVD,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing. “With the release of The Best of Elmo 4, children are in for two hours jam-packed with music, laughs, and lessons.”
