Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN Healthy Moment: Telly and Max play ball with each other by tossing it in the basketball hoop and throwing it to each other. Maria watches and comments that exercising is good for us.
SCENE Zoe and Elmo welcome the viewer to Sesame Street. Suddenly they notice a ball lying on the ground of the Arbor.
SCENE, cont'd Elmo picks up the ball and claims that it is his because he got to the ball first. However, Zoe claims it is her ball because she saw it first. This leads to a song in which Elmo and Zoe both keep saying, "It's mine!"
SCENE, cont'd At that moment, Luis enters and tries to break Elmo and Zoe apart. He explains that instead of arguing over whose ball it is, they could have fun with it by sharing by taking turns and playing together. So Elmo and Zoe play catch with the ball together and decides to go play with it in the park.

SCENE, cont'd As Zoe and Elmo are playing catch with the ball, Baby Bear sees them playing and is so relieved that they have found his ball! Elmo and Zoe claims that it is their ball and they all begin to argue again.
SCENE, cont'd However, Baby Bear claims it is his ball because he marked the letter "B" for Baby Bear on the bottom of the ball. After showing them the letter B on the bottom of the ball, Zoe and Elmo are finally convinced that the ball belongs to Baby Bear.
SCENE, cont'd As Baby Bear was about to take his ball home, Zoe and Elmo wanted to say good-bye to the ball. After listening to their good-byes, Baby Bear notice how sad Zoe and Elmo are and knew how much they love that ball. He decides that he didn't have to go home yet and he could play the ball with them because a ball is no good if you can't play it with your best friends.
SCENE, cont'd Baby Bear calls Zoe and Elmo over and teaches them a game called "Porridge Ball." All they have to do is throw the ball around and when they catch it, they have to yell out the word "porridge". All of them started playing the game until Zoe forgot to say "porridge" when she caught the ball and thought she was out of the game. However, Baby Bear mentions if they didn't say "porridge" when they catch the ball, they would have to say "porridge" twice when they catch the ball. This made the game fun to play because no one is left out of the game.
SCENE, cont'd Suddenly a lady came by and is relieved to find the ball that they were playing. She introduce herself as Cinderella's Fairy Godmother and she told them that the ball is Cinderella. She explains that she was suppose to send Cinderella to the dance ball, but accidentally turn her into a ball.

SCENE, cont'd With her magic, Cinderella's Fairy Godmother changes the ball to Cinderella, who is woozy from being thrown around and mutters "porridge" over and over again. As they were about to leave, Elmo, Zoe, and Baby Bear stop Cinderella's Fairy Godmother and told her that they needed a ball to play with. So Cinderella's Fairy Godmother use her magic to give them a ball.

SCENE, cont'd Unfortunately, she accidentally sends them to Cinderella's dance ball. Since they were there, Elmo and Zoe decided to dance and Baby Bear dance with Cinderella's Fairy Godmother. At that moment, Cinderella dance by with Prince Charming, but she is still muttering "porridge" and was still woozy from being thrown around.
