Looking for a movie with an evil villain who steals childrens blankies?
Shame on you, Childrens Television Workshop! I purchased this movie on Amazon after a recommendation here on commonsense media. What a disaster. As the movie opens, we are shown Elmo bonding and dancing with his Blankey but in the first 15 minutes the Blankie has been torn, lost, sent down the trash can, and then stolen by a "evil villain." Yes, the characters in this movie referred to the villain as "evil." I couldn't believe what I was hearing. While this did not scare my 3 yo child like I thought it might, (she sat there, struck dumb with her eyes wide as pies) I had to turn it off. I don't think she had ever heard most of the words they were using, as the evil villan plotted to hurt Elmo and declare his Blankie as "MINE because I touched it." I can't believe I own this horrible movie now part of my video collection. I am very disappointed that anyone would think this was a good "starter movie" for young children. I will certainly read parent's reviews more closely, and not trust "common sense" to have much sense at all! Good for children who are three years old!? Seriously?
