Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN What's the Word on the Street?: Volunteer


SCENE Leela welcomes the viewer while playing hide-and-seek with the kids who have been helping her today. Meanwhile, Alan waits for Chris to arrive to help clean Hooper's Store. In the garden, Luis and the kids are making a nice garden. All of this displeases Oscar, who'd rather see the street all dirty. That's why he's unveiling his new company - Dirtballs, which will spread dirt all over the street. His two employees, Hiram and Burt, arrive singing a song and they get to work.
SCENE cont'd While Luis and the kids work, Luis notices they have a problem. The Dirtballs crew arrives to give them some dirt, which turns out to help Luis; they needed some more soil for their plants and they've brought some healthy dirt for them. Hiram and Burt are surprised at what dirt can do, and Oscar orders them to the next stop.


SCENE cont'd Chris finally arrives to work with his cousin's talkative hamster. He was going to keep him at the apartment, but Susan is allergic to hamsters, and he is not allowed to stay in Hooper's (due to city regulations). Just then, Dirtballs arrives with some dirt. Oscar is shocked to find his dirt is solving another problem - the hamster is able to live in the crate of dirt instead of in the apartment or the store. Hiram and Burt are once again enlightened as to what dirt can do. Oscar, getting more frustrated, commands them to haul their crates to the next place.


SCENE cont'd Over at the laundromat, Baby Bear is getting tired of hide-and-seek, while Zoe still wants to play. Dirtballs comes by and drops off their dirt. To stop Zoe and Baby Bear from arguing (and preventing the dirt from spreading), Leela makes a game using the dirt, much to Oscar's disgust. In the game, they look through the dirt for find any "hidden treasures". They find an acorn, Barkley's bone and even a worm! Hiram and Burt are so amazed at the many things dirt can do, they grab some guitars and sing an ode to dirt. Oscar, at the end of his rope, closes Dirtballs for good. Now out of a job, Hiram and Burt decide to take up musical theater and dance off singing "Give My Regards to Broadway."
Muppets / Celebrity Usher shows Elmo different ways to volunteer as they see some animals help Luis and Susan.

Muppets / Animation Abby's Flying Fairy School
Today, the students are growing their own plants. Abby, Blogg and Peck grow their own flowers, but Gonnigan has no luck, even when trying to shove Peck in his pot. His friends convince him to use magic to make it grow. He uses his "Gigantic Spell" and turns the plant into a large beanstalk that stretches to the sky, with Peck hanging on. Mrs. Sparklenose has them poof to the top to retrieve her. Once at the top, they discover a giant using Peck as a tiny feather duster. They try to communicate, but they are not heard. They call Spot, who shows them images of ears. Abby makes Gonnigan perform his spell again, so they can be giants and talk to him. They grow to be as big as the giant and swap Peck for a large feather duster. Once back down in the classroom, they find Niblet has grown large by eating parts of the beanstalk. Niblet burps which shrinks him back to normal size.

Muppets Super Grover 2.0: Pretty Good Wall
Super Grover 2.0 comes to the aid of a chicken, who needs to get to the other side of "The Pretty Good Wall of China." Grover observes that she has wings, but she states she can't fly. Next, Grover investigates by trying to ask the wall to shrink down, while the chicken tries to hop over, knocking them both over. Grover browses his utility sock for some technology and finds some springs to help the chicken jump over. The springs are shoddy and cause her to fall onto of him ("Might I say that you are no spring chicken?"). He then pulls out a "hole-poker-ma-bob" (a pole) to pierce the wall. He gets a running start and smashes into the wall. He tries again and the chicken gets in the way, causing him to stick the pole on the ground and he is sent flying. The chicken realizes he's made a lever and uses a larger pole to polevalt over the wall. Grover makes an attempt too, but is flung into the wall again. (no music button)
