They almost sing it again, when Abby Cadabby appears in a poof, and asks to join them. Suddenly, Big Bird realizes the song won't work this time, because it's a song for two, and if Abby joins them, they won't be two anymore, but three. What to do? Abby suggests making herself disappear, but that turns out to be not such a good idea.

Gabi leaves for class. Now the three friends have another problem: they don't know any songs about the number 3! They try to think of one, and suddenly Abby decides to call on The Three Little Pigs for help! They are of little benefit to the group, as they only know songs about pigs. Suddenly, the Pigs have to run, as the Big Bad Wolf follows them to yoga class.

Notes

  • Sesame Street: A Celebration - 40 Years of Life on the Street gives some insight into the production of this episode. Caroll Spinney and Kevin Clash had originally prerecorded the song "One and One Make Two" a few days prior to filming, but Clash decided on-set to have Elmo sing live instead. Spinney, who couldn't easily sing live while performing Big Bird, stuck with his prerecorded vocal.
  • The episode was titled "All for a Song" when released on YouTube.
