Initially released as one of two CD-I games by Philips Interactive Media, under the label "A Visit to Sesame Street," the game was modified for CD-ROM releases. The first of which was released specifically for the 3DO by Electronic Arts (1994), and subsequently by Creative Wonders (1995-1997), The Learning Company (1998), and Encore Software (2001). The game was also included in the Sesame Street Learning Series: Toddlers Deluxe CD-ROM set.
The appropriate performers provide voices for the characters, but of particular note is a vocal track by Jim Henson as Ernie and Kermit the Frog. A special thanks message to Henson is seen at the game's end credits.
