1991 CD-I cover

Numbers is an interactive Sesame Street computer game that was originally developed by the Children's Television Workshop in 1991.

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 CD-ROM releases feature some altered visuals, including a new intro showing the Around the Corner set, which was not conceived when the game initially was released.

Elmo guides the user around Sesame Street while number recognition, counting, adding, subtracting, and other math skills are encouraged. Other characters include Ernie, Bert, Big Bird, and the Count.

As with its companion Letters, this game features posthumous voice-over work by Jim Henson as Ernie and Kermit the Frog. A special thanks message to Henson is seen at the end credits.
