Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN What’s the Word on the Street?: Unanimous
(First: Episode 4169)
SCENE Alan serves some customers some drinks and hears arguing outside. Zoe, Rosita and Devon want to put a square on their block tower, while Elmo and Dylan want a circle. Alan solves their problem by having them take a vote. The square gets the most votes, so they put it on top and use the circle as the swimming pool.
SCENE cont’d Rosita and the two kids must go, leaving Zoe and Elmo alone. They both decide to pass the time by singing a song. Zoe wants to sing “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”, but Elmo opts for “Row, Row, Row Your Boat”. They decide to take a vote on which song, but end in a tie. Zoe points out they had more people last time so they leave to get more voters.

SCENE cont’d Zoe returns with Rocco and Elmo comes back with Dorothy. Zoe and Rocco vote for “Twinkle, Twinkle” and Elmo and Dorothy vote for “Row, Row, Row”, which still is a tie. They call Alan for help and he points out that to settle the tie, they’ll need a tiebreaker.



SCENE cont’d Telly strolls in singing a song. They give him the deal and make him the tiebreaker. He has a hard time choosing which song to vote for, so he makes them convince him which one to vote for. Zoe and Elmo go out of their way to persuade Telly to vote for each of their songs by promising outlandish ways of performing the song. Zoe promises that they could sing it on a pogo stick or on a swinging star with a chicken. Elmo claims they sing his song on pogo stick on a boat and in a boat with a hula-dancing pig. Telly can’t decide which one to vote for and wishes he had an easier choice, like The Triangle Dance (where you dance with a triangle). Zoe and Elmo (plus their pets) think the dance sounds interesting and take a vote on it. They all vote to do the dance and it’s unanimous! A triangle whooshes in and they all do The Triangle Dance.
Muppets / Celebrity LL Cool J, Elmo and Abby Cadabby try to show “unanimous” by agreeing to go to somewhere, but Oscar intervenes and disagrees with them, making it not unanimous. They turn the tables on him by all agreeing to not go anywhere too, and then when Oscar changes his mind, they agree with him again.
