Sesame Street – Telling the Truth [VHS] [VHS Tape] | Used – Like New

$24.99 $11.99

Elmo and Telly share billing on this half-hour instructional video that gently preaches the virtue of being forthright. The lesson begins as Gina reads “The Boy Who Cried Wolf” to her day-care charges. Elmo dreams himself into the tale, in which no sheep are eaten and the offending wolf ends up tied to a tree. Meanwhile, Telly seems to be the only one who hasn’t been or isn’t going to the circus. Feeling left out, he tells them his Uncle Tommy (Dennis Quaid) is the ringmaster. Of course, he gets found out, is forgiven, and joins Uncle Tommy, Gina, and the gang in a big song-and-dance number. The irony for adults and older kids is that Uncle Tommy is actually an astronaut, not exactly a low-profile job. But even his uncle gets the call to blast off into space without the benefit of a rocket ship: Telly announces that he loves him even if he’s not a circus employee. Stay tuned after the credits for a one-minute message from Quaid.
