COLD OPEN What's the Word on the Street?: Baile (Dance)


SCENE Rosita welcomes the viewer and notices Gina making animal sounds behind her. She learns that Gina is teaching Marco animal names in Spanish using a book. Gina explains that because he was born in Guatemala, she wants him to be better acquainted with the Spanish language (and it's good for her to know as well). Rosita thinks there's even more for him to learn (mucho, mucho mas). She runs off and returns with her guitarra (guitar) and plays for them. She shows them even more instruments, including the claves, maracas, the güiro and the bongos. She introduces the word musica and sings a song about the word, with an animal back-up band.

SCENE cont'd Rosita next teaches them the word baile, which means "dance." Gina and Marco do a funky dance of their own, but Rosita exposes her to some Latin dances. First is the tango, which Gina ends up doing with a rooster. He returns to do the merengue with her. Rosita also shows them a conga with the animals. She then sings another song that further explains the various Latin dances.

SCENE cont'd Rosita then presents them with some comida (food) and typical Latin dishes. The chefs urge Gina to eat all their dishes, but Gina thinks it's too much for her and Marco. Rosita assures her that the food is best shared and presents another word, fiesta! All their friends gather for a party and sing about another word, "Amigo."

Muppets / Animation Abby's Flying Fairy School
The fairies are having lunch and Blogg is disappointed at the size of his sandwich (which is several stacks high). With a spell, he conjures a large lunchbox that belongs to Pandora. Mrs. Sparklenose warns the students not to open it. Gonnigan loses control of his wings in fright and hits the lunchbox, opening it and releasing some large and rambunctious snacks. They inspect the lunchbox and find some shapes at the bottom, which should match the shape of each item. Discovering that the juice box is a rectangle, the wrap is a circle and the chips form a hexagon, they are able to put them back in their places. Pandora arrives to pick up her lunchbox and offers them some of her food...

Muppets Super Grover 2.0
Two little piggies are sailing through a swamp, when the wind dies down, stranding them. Super Grover 2.0 lands in their boat (with life-vest and water wings) and tries to use his super breath to move the boat, but he blows the sail off the boat. He gets out and tries to push and pull the boat, with no success. He then tries to push the water out of the way to see what the problem is, pushing their boat. He finds a paddle in his utility sock and the pigs use it as a lever to paddle their boat down the creek with. They go so fast, Grover falls out of the boat and is now the one who's "up a creek without something to be up a creek with."
