|The Furchester Hotel|
|Air date||November 1, 2016|
Furgus and Elmo build the Furchester's latest purchase - DotBot, a robot that will follow any command. Meanwhile, Funella and Phoebe check in Mr. Magnetic, a sentient magnet who lives up to his name. Furgus and Elmo introduce Harvey P. Dull to DotBot, who brings him some toast as request. Mr. Dull is pleased to see the service improving. Furgus returns to work and leaves DotBot in Elmo's watch.
Elmo and DotBot head to the dining room, where Gonger is too busy too make any cookies for Cookie Monster. Elmo orders DotBot to make some and he complies. He suddenly begins to malfunction, eating the cookies and won't respond to his shut-down command. He starts wreaking havoc in the lobby, when Elmo remembers he has an off switch on his back. They can't catch up to him as he escapes into the lift. Furgus produces a net to catch him, but the Tea Time Monsters barge through and ruin the plan.
They try to come up with a new solution, when they see Mr. Magnetic getting tangled up with Ms. Spooner. Since DotBot is metallic, they think Mr. Magnetic can attract him and keep him in place. The plan works and they shut DotBot down, planning to send him back to the factory. Elmo and Phoebe are sad to see him go, when Elmo notices some wires have become disconnected in DotBot's circuitry. Furgus reconnects them and DotBot appears in fine, working condition, allowing him to stay.
- The robot puppet used for DotBot originally appeared as Memorybot in the 2010 Sesame Street video The Best of Elmo 2.
