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

SCENE Chris welcomes the viewer, when Telly rushes to him in a nervous fit. He tells Chris that Humpty Dumpty is sitting on the wall and he's sure that he'll fall and break. They go to the arbor and confront him. Humpty (voiced by Jerry Nelson) assures Telly he's not performing his nursery rhyme today and is instead watching the annual football game between All the King's Horses and All the King's Men. Telly hops onto the wall to join him, while Chris returns to work (and to fetch some buffalo wings for Humpty).


SCENE cont'd Humpty's egg timer goes off, which means the game's set to begin. The teams arrive on the field, when the horses point out they're down one player. The third horse, Nigel, arrives with a charley-horse (as a result from his Zumba class) and is unable to play. They're about to call off the game, but Humpty declares he'll take Nigel's place. Telly is afraid Humpty will break, but he's sure he won't, as he has his helmet and pads. The game commences and the horse throws the ball back to Humpty. The impact knocks him over and he shatters. Because all the king's horses and men can't repair him, they bring him to Dr. Feldman (an egg, nose and throat man). Despite the setback, Humpty says he'll resume playing once he's fixed ("An egg never gives up on his dream.").
SCENE cont'd Telly tries to think of how he can keep Humpty safe and thinks a cushion will protect him better. Humpty returns good-as-new and resumes playing. The cushion prevents the ball from knocking him down, but when charging toward the opposing team, he falls over and is cracked again, then sent back to Dr. Feldman.

SCENE cont'd Telly sees his cushion idea did not work and thinks he needs something bouncier. He spots the sponge in Chris' pocket and observes the bouncy material. Telly raids Hooper's stock of sponges and covers Humpty with them. When the game resumes, Humpty makes it to where he last was and is able to bounce from the ground when knocked over, but is smashed when the team tackles him. The men rush him back to Dr. Feldman and Telly gets worried again. Chris explains to him that eggs are fragile and they go to Hooper's.
SCENE cont'd Chris shows Telly how real eggs break very easily and why they must be kept in an egg carton. This gives Telly an idea and he runs off with the carton.
SCENE cont'd Telly has made some armor with egg cartons for Humpty to wear. The outfit works and Humpty is able to score a touchdown.

Muppets / Celebrity Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Cookie Monster demonstrate the word fragile using Tyler's nana's cookie jar. Cookie's over-eagerness causes Jesse to drop it.

Muppets / Animation Abby's Flying Fairy School
Mrs. Sparklenose announces today in class, the students can earn their Fairy Godmother wings by participating in the “Cinderella Challenge”. With a brief game of “Eeny Meeny Miney Ming”, Blögg is chosen to the Cinderella. First they must poof a gown on him. They turn him into a hula dancer (dressing “down”), a clown and James Brown, until they come up with a good rhyme and make a gown appear. Next, they need glass slippers, but they ones they conjure up are too small and too big (and end up breaking, forcing Niblet to clean them up). They call on Spot, who shows them images of the number 12, which Gonnigan realizes is Blogg’s shoe size. Next, they need to turn a pumpkin into a coach, but Niblet has already eaten it. They improvise and turn Niblet into a motorcycle, which sends them all around the room. Gonnigan steers them to the ball pit, which counts as going to the ball, which means they pass and get their wings! (re-orchestrated theme song)

Muppets Super Grover 2.0: Ice Block Party
A group of penguins begin their dance practice, but a large ice block is in the way. Super Grover 2.0 arrives in the Super-Grovermobile to help. Using his powers of observation, he sees the ice block is in the way of the problem, but learns it is the problem. Now with his powers of investigation, he tickles the ice to see if it will move. A penguin suggests pushing it, but Grover declares it as his own idea and tries to push, with no success. He makes a bigger push (running into it), but doesn't move. While he goes to get some useful technology, the penguins notice the Super-Grovermobile is big and heavy like the ice, but it can move with the help of wheels. While Grover begins to whack the ice with a golf club to move it, the penguins take his wheels (and his golf club) and stick them under the ice, making it easy to move. As the penguins dance off, Grover wonders why his car won't move.
