Beat the Time, a parody of Beat the Clock, is a Sesame Street game show hosted by Guy Smiley, first seen in season four.

The object of the game is for the contestant to complete a task before the clock ran out, often ending with the set being destroyed.


Picture Guest / First Appearance Description

Cookie Monster
Episode 0446
In order to win a cookie, Cookie Monster has to find three things that rhyme with the word '"rain" before the hand goes around the clock. They turn out to be an old man's cane, a chain (to which Frazzle is attached), and finally a train which destroys the set.
(Note: The locomotive in this skit is the prop used in "The Ballad of Casey McPhee".)

Count von Count
Episode 1698
The Count has to bring in two items that come from the sky, but he'd rather count the twenty seconds remaining on the clock. As it turns out, that brings thunder and lightning into the studio, both of which come from the sky! Guy tells The Count that he can have anything he wants as a prize. The Count chooses another twenty seconds on the clock to count and Smiley notes that the show was able to really get below budget for this episode.
Episode 2610
Elmo must bring in three items that start with "SN" within thirty seconds (though the clock is clearly going a lot slower than that). They turn out to be a man's snack of nuts and raisins, a sneaker (worn by Telly Monster), and finally, the massive Mr. Snuffleupagus! As his prize, he is given a snowman wearing a snorkel.
