*** “The Alphabet Game.” “Count It Higher: Great Music Videos From Sesame Street.” Sesame Street / Random House . $19.95 each. Two new videos, with accompanying activity booklets, offer more Muppet magic for Sesame Street fans who can’t get enough. In “The Alphabet Game” (a combination of new Muppet action and animated alphabet segments from the television show), Big Bird, Gary Grouch and Dimples the Dog compete for prizes in the “Alphabet Treasure Hunt” game show. The letters J and W are a hoot.

Clever spoofs on familiar rock songs make “Count It Higher” downright irresistible. The Count hosts a rock video show on the “SMV” channel, spotlighting Kermit’s “The Doo Wop Hop,” Ernie’s reggae version of “Do De Rubber Duck,” “ZZ Blues” by a hairy brother act called Over the Top, and four other hits.
