Elmo's World-Elmo Explores-2 Hours of fun

Do you remember Elmo? I always thought he was cute. My grandaughter was afraid of Elmo when she was a toddler but not anymore.
Today we have a two hour collection of Elmo's World episodes, appearing for the first time on DVD. Using the power of his imagination, Sesame Street's little red monster explores kid-friendly topics such as painting, cooking and habitats from a chid's point of view.

Joined by the hilarious Mr. Noodle, Smartie the Smartphone, and his pet goldfish Dorothy, Elmo asks questions that lead to fun discoveries.

An age appropriate launch pad for imagination and learning, Elmo's World: Elmo Explores! indulges children's natural sense of curiosity about the world around them.

Each engaging installment of this newly-reimagined Sesame Street segment presents young viewers with lessons to help them grow smarter, stronger, and kinder.

Bonus Features include two episodes of the uproariously silly Sesame Street spin-off The Furchester Hotel and three classic segments of the original Elmo's World.

The Furchester Hotel episodes The Count's Vacation and Space Alien Party are presented here on DVD for the first time in North America as bonus features.
The Furchester Hotel is an "almost" world-class establishment run by a tight knit family of cheerfully incometent monsters. The proprietors are welcoming owner Funella Furchester, her dear and beleagured husband Furgus Fuzz, their daughter, the unflappable Phoebe Furchester-Fuzz, and Isabel, the furriest front desk bell in the business. Cousin Elmo is on an extended visit and fascinated by all the hotel has to offer. Cookie Monster has landed his dream job as a room service and dining room waiter. The family bends over backwards, forwards, and sideways (occasionally tipping over) to be sure the needs of every guest are met because a Furchester never gives up! Animal, vegetable, and mineral alike flock to this hub of hospitality, where problem solving is part of the service.

3 classic Elmo's World episodes: "Music," "Pets," and "Drawing".
Learn all about Painting, Cooking, Homes, Habitats, Fathers Day, Skin, Camouflage, Recycling, Instruments, Books, Seasons, Siblings and Colors.

This is open to both US and Canada and one winner will be chosen. Good luck everyone.
