Picture Segment Description
Intro My Favorite Sesame Street Moments: Maria Greene
Maria, who grew up in Trinidad, describes how she likes the way Sesame Street teaches diversity. A clip from the song "Pride" is shown.

SCENE Big Bird welcomes the viewer to Sesame Street, and points out how important it is to practice - which Miles and his band are doing. Big Bird asks if he can listen to them practicing while he reads his nursery rhymes, but Miles finds it difficult if Big Bird reads out loud.

SCENE, cont'd Just as they start practicing their song, something falls from the sky! It turns out to be the cow that jumped over the moon. Miles points out to his band that these things happen sometimes on Sesame Street. Big Bird and the cow finish the rhyme together, and the cow leaves.

SCENE, cont'd Miles and the band start practicing again, when "The Man in Brown" emerges, calling for his pig that flew up in the air. Big Bird says he was just reading about him (in the rhyme "Hickory Dickory Dare"), and after he finishes the rhyme, the pig falls from the sky and lands on one of Tony's cymbals. Miles thinks they should practice somewhere else, but Big Bird leaves to go read in his nest. The man and the pig follow him.

SCENE, cont'd Just as the band begins practicing again, Elmo shows up with a letter W, saying it's time for the Letter of the Day - something else they do on Sesame Street. Elmo shows the words wet, wash and wubba.
SCENE, cont'd Zoe interrupts band practice once again, to display the Number of the Day, 5. She counts the band members plus herself, which equal five.
SCENE, cont'd Just when they think their interruptions are over, the cow comes falling down from the sky again, and recites the "Nursery Rhyme of the Day," which is Hey Diddle Diddle. However, the man in brown shows up again as well, and argues with the cow over which one is today's nursery rhyme ... right as the pig falls down on both of them. Miles and the band agree to find somewhere else to practice.
SCENE, cont'd Oscar gives the band permission to practice in his trash can. Miles doesn't think they can do it, but Oscar says lots of bands practice in his trash can, such as N*Stynk. Miles thinks it's unusual for Oscar, a Grouch, to let them practice there, but Oscar claims to be a music lover.


SCENE, cont'd Gordon overhears music coming from inside Oscar's trash can, and sees Miles pop out. Miles likes practicing there so far. Oscar assures them it'll get better, and for him, it does, because N*Stynk and Phlegminem show up for band practice, thus making it too loud and stinky for Miles' band to practice.
SCENE, cont'd Gordon knows just the place for them to practice ...

SCENE, cont'd ... the rooftop of 123 Sesame Street. Just as they get set up, Big Bird and Elmo show up again, to watch them and clap. Rosita, Zoe, a Dinger, some kids, the falling cow, the falling pig, and Oscar even show up.

SCENE, cont'd Miles and the band play "It's Everybody's Home." Everyone cheers, but Oscar, the heckler, does what he does best.
