Picture Segment Description
Guess what Elmo's thinking about today? Elmo opens the door to a pile of toys and games that fall into the room. A montage of children playing games plays.
Dorothy's Question Dorothy has a checkers game decoration in her fish bowl. She wants to know how to play a game.
The Noodle Family Mr. Noodle and Mr. Noodle's brother Mr. Noodle exchange their vests, then they pull on opposing ends of a rope, pulling one and then the other off the screen until they get the entire rope onto the screen, then turn the rope different ways until they figure out how to jump rope together.
Kids and Baby Kids show Dorothy how they play a memory card game, Simon Says, and tag. Elmo asks a baby that babbles and plays This Little Piggie with her.
Video E-Mail Elmo searches his room for his Computer, which he finds crouching behind Drawer playing a game of hide-and-seek. In Elmo's e-mail, Ernie and Rubber Duckie play "hide-and-squeak."
Elmo's Question Elmo asks the viewer to help him count CGI frogs (and a kangaroo) playing leapfrog.
Quiz Elmo plays "Three of These Things" with a soccer ball, a jump rope, jacks and Stinky the Stinkweed. Stinky disagrees with the voice-over kids, insisting that you can play a game with him. He demonstrates, playing Simon Says by "growing" a flower.
Film Elmo's friend Abigail plays "Where Is Thumbkin?" by herself, her friend Juan sings it in Spanish, and then they play it together. Elmo later makes up his own game of "Where Is Thumbkin?" in the end.
TV Cartoon TV wants to play tag, so Elmo quickly tags TV so he can watch The Game Channel. The channel tells the story of a brother and sister who love to play dress-up and what they imagine doing. They dress up as pirates, royalty, cowfolks, and then they go to bed. Coming up next: "JumpRope" by Alfred Hopscotch.

Tickle Me Land Dorothy decides to play the imagination game and imagines three Elmos playing "Ring Around the Rosie" (one Elmo fell up instead of down) and two Elmos playing basketball.
