50 Years And Counting is an upcoming DVD release commemorating the 50th anniversary of Sesame Street, to be released on October 1, 2019. The two-disc set will contain various segments and street plots from the show's history, with one disc containing just segments and the other containing just street plots.[1]

This special 2 DISC COLLECTION is packed with the most beloved moments from the show, including Maria and Luis's wedding, Mr. Hooper's death, the moment Snuffleupagus became "real," and that one time Gordon and Big Bird (and Snuffy!) ran the New York City Marathon. Plus fan favorites like Forgetful Jones, the Amazing Mumford, Sherlock Hemlock, Don Music, and even Lefty the Salesman can be found in OVER 5 HOURS of Sesame Street.

Joining the furry festivities are a host of special guests, including classic clips of Madeline Kahn, REM, and Patti LaBelle; songs from Solange, Sara Bareilles, Janelle Monáe, and Josh Groban; and belly laughs courtesy of Amy Poehler, Jeff Goldblum, and Ricky Gervais.[2]

Additionally, bonus content will include "a few never-before-seen outtakes with Jim Henson and other original performers" and certain retailers will include a special "Sesame Street frame" along with the set.[3]
