COLD OPEN What’s the Word on the Street?: Cheer
(First: Episode 4178)

SCENE Elmo plays with his basketball and welcomes the viewer. He tells them how he’s trying to bounce the ball three times when Zoe walks to him, waving her pompoms and cheering. She explains what a cheerleader is and believes some cheering will help Elmo bounce three times. Lo and behold, her support works and he is able to do it. Elmo wants to be a cheerleader too. He auditions to Zoe, who makes him an official Sesame Street Cheerleader, complete with his own pompoms.

SCENE cont’d Zoe and Elmo cheer down the block and come across Telly, who’s attempting to bounce on his pogo stick three times with a triangle on his head and get a place in the “Guinness Book of Triangle Records”. Zoe and Elmo think up a cheer for Telly and their motivation helps Telly succeed. Telly notices how much fun it looks to be a cheerleader and wants to be one too. After he auditions, Zoe and Elmo deem his worthy and give him his pompoms. They go find someone else to cheer for.
SCENE cont’d Gordon and Alan are playing a game of chess and Alan tries to think of a move. Suddenly, the three cheerleaders pop up and begin cheering for Alan. They inform the monsters that chess is a quiet game and doesn’t need loud cheering, so they start cheering quieter. They then cheer without any sound, but their pompoms mess up their game board. Gordon tells them that chess is not a game that requires cheering and they go off on their way.

SCENE cont’d They look for someone else to cheer for, but everyone they ask, including Maria and a chicken, are too busy. Telly believes they should just stop cheering, until Elmo realizes that they can cheer for themselves!
SCENE cont’d Two football teams, The Sheep and The Penguins, overhear their cheering and ask them to cheer for their teams. But which one will they cheer for? Both! The Sesame Street Cheerleaders cheer for everybody!
Film H.A.V.I.C Squared Dancers show up, down, fast, slow, front and back.

Muppets / Animation Abby's Flying Fairy School
Playtime is over for the students and they must clean up. Blogg doesn’t want to put his toys away, so he decides to sweep them under the magic carpet. However, a magic lock is on it. Once unlocked (using Niblet’s horn), a hoard of Fairy Dust Bunnies are unleashed. Unfortunately, Mrs. Sparklenose is allergic to the dust bunnies and once they come in contact with her, her nose sparkles and blinks once. She sneezes and turns the students into frogs. They make up a magic word to return them back to normal (Gezundenshniffle). Her nose blinks twice now, turning them into chickens. They realize they have to say their word for every time her nose blinks to return to normal. Her nose blinks thrice and they turn into cheese and are then chased by a hungry Niblet. After returning to normal, they call on Spot, who shows them a video of a robot “under” various things. They see that to get the dust bunnies gone, they need to go back under the rug. They make a dust carrot and sends the dust bunnies back under. Blogg, however, is stuck cleaning up his toys.
