SCENE 1 Prairie Dawn welcomes the viewer to Sesame Street. Elmo interrupts and asks Prairie to go miniature golfing with him, but first Prairie has a list of things she has to tell the viewers about. Elmo says that he'll help. Flustered, Prairie begins to talk about The Letter of the Day, K. Elmo doesn't like the K word she chooses, Kitchen, and instead demonstrates Karate. Elmo becomes King Kevin, the King of Karate.
