Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN What's the Word on the Street?: Celebration
SCENE Zoe is having fun with Rocco today, when Alan passes by. Zoe convinces him to join in singing Rocco's favorite song, "Rocco and Roll." When the music starts, Chris rushes in, a fan of the song. After they sing and dance, they two head off. Rocco "tells" Zoe he's hot and Zoe decides to get his hat, but needs someone to watch him.


SCENE cont'd Elmo appears, playing with Baby David. Zoe asks him to watch Rocco while she's gone, but Elmo decides to keep his attention in his game. While he plays, a Frisbee flies over Elmo. Madisyn also passes by, who kicks something around while she leaves. Zoe comes back to find Rocco is now missing. Elmo doesn't understand what happened and tries to cheer Zoe up with another rock as a replacement. Angered and insulted, Zoe leaves in a huff, looking for Rocco.

SCENE cont'd Elmo tells Chris what happened and doesn't know why Zoe's upset. Chris explains that Zoe loves Rocco, much like Elmo loves Baby David, making him more than "just a rock" to Zoe. Elmo realizes his mistake and tries to fix things by finding Rocco. He uses his memory to find clues: he recalls hearing a sound when the Frisbee appeared, which could mean it knocked Rocco off the table. He then recalls Madisyn kicking something when she left, and that thing could've been Rocco. Elmo leaves to find her, with Chris following (now invested in the story).
SCENE cont'd Elmo finds Madisyn on the stoop and asks her about Rocco. She says she found the rock and kicked it around the street and left it in the garden. Elmo gets Chris and they both go to the garden to look.

SCENE cont'd Upon their arrival, they find a large pile of rocks. In order to find Rocco, Elmo uses his memory again to describe what Rocco looks like, while Chris tries to match his memory. They finally find a rock that fits Rocco's description and Elmo goes to find Zoe.

SCENE cont'd Zoe wanders the street sadly, calling out to Rocco. Elmo finds her and apologizes, knowing now what Rocco means to her. He returns Rocco to her, making her happy and making them friends again. Chris calls for a celebration and suggests they sing Rocco's song again. Elmo laughs at the idea of a rock having a favorite song, but Chris reminds him of the lesson he learned, so Elmo joins in. When the music starts once more, Alan appears to join in their reprise of "Rocco and Roll" (now loving the song).
Muppets / Celebrity LaDainian Tomlinson and Elmo explain what a celebration is.

Muppets / Animation Abby's Flying Fairy School
The class plays with Niblet, the class pet. It’s Gonnigan’s turn to hold him, but he’s to afraid to and disappears. Blogg then tries to and Niblet steals his wand. After a chase, he runs into a crayon drawing n the wall. However, they are unable to get inside. Spot shows them videos of doors, which gives them the idea to use a door. After twinkle-thinking, Abby realizes the drawing is Gonnigan’s and he can draw a door on it. Once inside, they try and follow him, but he draws a river between them. Abby draws a pumpkin to get them across, but Gonnigan adds a sail. Once on the river, Niblet re-draws it as the top of a mountain. Gonnigan adds wheels to get down to him, but Niblet draws a second hill, causing them to slide back and forth between them. Niblet escapes the drawing and heads into his Gerblecorn hole. They try opening it with a spell (rhyming “door” with “Zsa Zsa Gabor”), but find out magic can’t open it. They sob at the idea of never seeing Niblet again, which brings him out of his hole. He gives Blogg his wand back and has Gonnigan hold him. Mrs. Sparklenose rewards them (and the viewer) with a gold star.

Muppets Super Grover 2.0: Nest Moving Day
In Brooklyn, New York, a robin family struggles to move their grand piano up to their new nest. Super Grover 2.0 arrives on the scene and observes the piano is big, hard and heavy. He browses through his utility sock and finds a "super spatula", but can't flip the piano up. He then pulls out some balloons that can't lift the piano, but lift Grover up in the air! He grabs hold of the clothesline and breaks it. The birds lift him up with the pully and the eager robin son wonders if the rope could lift the piano. Grover proceeds to whip the piano with it and the robin son decides to play superhero. He deduces that if they put the rope through the pull on their tree, they can lift it. Grover sits on the piano to come up with another plan, not noticing they are lifting him up with it. They all cheer and Grover falls to the ground. He states they may need the pully again...for him.
