SYStitle

Sing Yourself Sillier at the Movies is a Sesame Street direct-to-video compilation released in 1997, serving as a sequel to the 1990 release Sing Yourself Silly!

In a spoof of Siskel and Ebert's Sneak Previews, Telly and Oscar are seen in a movie theater, reviewing the silliest songs from Sesame Street. Telly loves all of them and he gives them 5 "Wows". Oscar, however, dislikes most of them and usually gives them 5 "Phooeys."
