|Air date||April 23, 2004|
|Season||Season 35 (2004)|
|Written by||Luis Santeiro|
|Intro||My Favorite Sesame Street Moments: Bill Cosby talks about how Sesame Street convinced him that he should be involved with an entertaining children's educational show. A clip from James Earl Jones reciting the alphabet is shown.|
|SCENE||Rosita and Zoe welcome the viewers to Sesame Street and mention that a new school for superheroes is starting today. Just then, the bell rings and they hurry off to class.|
|SCENE, cont'd||In the arbor, Grover (dressed in a combination of his superhero and professor outfit) is excited about teaching a superhero school and tells the viewers that they can join in too. Gabi and Luis suddenly come by with packages and Professor Super Grover asks them if they want to join his superhero school, but they have a lot of packages to deliver. As Rosita, Zoe, and four kids are seated in their desks, Professor Super Grover says good morning to them and they begin class.|
|SCENE, cont'd||Professor Super Grover forgets what he needs to do to start off class. Zoe raises her hand and says that they can all introduce themselves so they can get to know each other. Professor Super Grover agrees, but he also wants the students to introduce themselves by their superhero name based on their special skills. As Rosita, Zoe, and the kids show off their special skills, Professor Super Grover gives them each a superhero name.|
|SCENE, cont'd||As Professor Super Grover tries to remember the next lesson, Rosita suggests that they can say the alphabet and Zoe agrees just in case they run into letter who needs their help. Professor Super Grover agrees, but adds that superheroes sing and dance the alphabet rather than just saying it. They all dance and sing the Alphabet Song.|
|SCENE, cont'd||For the next lesson, Zoe suggests that they can learn animal sounds, so they can recognize what animal is in trouble. It wasn’t what Professor Super Grover had in mind, but luckily he has his animal-in-distress-identification kit and plays an animal sound for his classmates to guess the animal. He plays random animal sounds, including chicken clucks, which prompts Super Chicken to arrive, thinking it was an actual chicken in distress. After finding that it wasn’t, Super Chicken storms off.|
|SCENE, cont'd||In his next lesson, Professor Super Grover teaches the class the word "help," because a superhero needs to know that word. Then, he and the class start yelling the word to better understand it. Luis and Gabi overhear them yelling and arrive quickly to see if everyone is okay. Professor Super Grover is impressed at how quickly they came over and asks if they still want to join. However, Gabi and Luis still have to deliver packages.|
|SCENE, cont'd||Rosita and Zoe ask if they are superheroes now, but Professor Super Grover tells them that the last thing they need to do is find someone who is in trouble and help them. At that moment, they all hear a hopping sound, elephant trumpets, and someone shouting for help. They all investigate and find a letter H up in a tree, and an elephant dancing around. Rosita asks the letter H why it's up a tree and the letter H replies that he was hopping to get away from the huge elephant.|
|SCENE, cont'd||As Professor Super Grover panics, not knowing what to do, Rosita suggests that they ask the elephant some questions to find out what is going on. Professor Super Grover then tries to ask the elephant some random fact questions, but it doesn’t stop the elephant from jumping around. Finally, Rosita asks the elephant why he's angry, and he stops to say that he was trying to scratch an itch on his back. So the kids go over and scratch his back for him. The elephant thanks them and goes off as the letter H hops down from the tree. The letter H thanks them, adding that they're heroes, but Zoe says that it was thanks to Professor Super Grover.|
|SCENE, cont'd||Professor Super Grover is proud of his students, and tells them that they are all superheroes now. As he recites a long graduation speech, Zoe decides to go back to dancing and Rosita goes back to playing her guitar. Everyone leaves as Grover continues his speech.|
