COLD OPEN What's the Word on the Street?: Half
(First: Episode 4172)


SCENE Chris welcomes the viewer and remarks how quiet mornings are on the street, until Telly blares his whistle and wears a coach uniform. He gives Chris clues as to what today is with a marching band and baton twirlers (with 6 kids in each). Chris guesses it’s Number 6 Day and Telly brings on the cheerleaders, but there’s only five of them. Telly takes note and makes Chris the sixth cheerleader. The cheerleaders cheer off as Telly brings out a talking number 6, who officially lets the games commence. Telly introduces the first game, The Six-Pig Tickle (“It’s got pigs! It’s got tickling! You’re gonna love it!”)

SCENE cont’d Elmo finishes warming up and is ready to be tickled by the pigs. After a cheer, Elmo is tickled by pigs, until Telly blares his whistle and interrupts, claiming there’s too many pigs. Telly counts 7 pigs and feels the day is ruined. (“Oh, the agony of defeat!”) Chris tells him to calm down and points out that by subtracting one pig, there will be six. Telly asks one pig to leave and they count 6 pigs, which begin tickling Elmo.
SCENE cont’d Telly announces the half-time show, a number 3 (as she is half of 6). She explains to the audience that despite their current confusion, they’ll soon learn about division and fractions and will already know 3 is half of 6.

SCENE cont’d Now, it’s time for the Chicken Laying Six Eggs event. The huddle into Big Bird’s nest area as a chicken tries to lay six eggs, but tires out after laying three. Big Bird is prepared and brings out a spare chicken he has. She too, only lays three eggs. Telly thinks the event is ruined again, until Chris adds the eggs together, making six. With the final event over, it’s time for the finale – Pete from Peoria sings the “Six Penguins in My Shirt” song. However, the number 6 arrives to inform them that Pete missed his flight, while the shirt and penguins arrived on another one. Chris convinces Telly to perform in Pete’s place.
SCENE cont’d Dressed in an over-sized coat, Telly sings “Six Penguins in My Shirt”. He then takes the penguins to get some fish.

Muppets / Animation Abby's Flying Fairy School
Today, the class will take the "Tooth Fairy Test", where they must retrieve a child's tooth, change it into a coin, then leave it under their pillow. They appear in a little girl's bedroom and Blogg tries a sleeping spell to make sure she doesn't wake up, but it affects Mrs. Sparklenose as well. Now on their own, Blogg tries to get the tooth, but his hand gets stuck under the girl's hand. They use the magic lifting word (up) and she rises into the air. But, now how to they make the tooth into a coin? They call on Spot, who shows them a commercial for The World Tooth Bank, where chanting "ATM" will conjure up a tooth-to-coin machine. They chant the letters and convert the tooth into one coin. Blogg tries to slip under the pillow, but they keep saying down, making her fall on his hand again. Gonnigan loses his grip and falls onto a TV remote, showing a workout show, which continuously makes the girl go up and down. They finally get the coin under the pillow, when Mrs. Sparklenose wakes up, ready to begin the test. She sees the great job they've already done and awards them their Tooth Fairy Badges.
