  1. It’s nice that Genius has issued a documentary on “SESAME STREET”‘s 40th anniversary, but it would be even more enlightening if the first five episodes {the first week} were released on DVD as well. The show DOES look a lot different today than it did 40 years ago, and I’d hate to travel all the way to the Paley Center For Media in New York or Los Angeles, pay a membership fee, and watch the first episode at one of their consoles instead of the comfort of my own living room….

  2. You can find the first episode from each of the first five seasons on Sesame Street – Old School, Volume 1 (1969-1974), which is better than nothing. Here is a review of the set from Muppet Central. Unfortunately, several episodes have been edited. Still, you get to see Oscar in all his orange glory.

    A second volume, covering 1974 to 1979, has also been released.
