Gordon has four things lined up in a row--a harmonica, a whistle, a trumpet, and a banana. He tells Ernie that one of these doesn't belong, and Ernie chooses the banana because you can make music with the instruments, but you eat the banana... or so he thinks. Gordon tells Ernie to blow into the banana and Ernie appears to be playing a horn until Gordon reveals he was honking a horn behind his back the whole time. Amused by the trick, they decide to play the same joke on Cookie Monster, but Cookie has a different idea--you eat the harmonica, whistle, and trumpet, and make beautiful music with the banana!
(First: Episode 0016)

Film "What if you were magic, and could make things stop just by telling it to, or make it go backwards? Stop! Then you could see what things look like when they're moving. Go forwards! Stop! Well, film is magic, and this is a film, so you can be magic for three minutes. Like this: Go slow, water fountain! Now, you try it."
