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.

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.

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 dedication to Henson is seen at the game's end credits.

    • Yeah, I don't hear Spinney in the least, even with that clip. But it's not that vital that we specify a voice for "Numbers on Ice" anyway, if...
    • I suppose, considering it's the only non-Muppet voice among them.

    • I tracked the credits for Numbers, which includes a special thanks message to Jim Henson. Would this count as a production dedication, since...
    • Yes, definitely!
