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

SCENE Baby Bear is caring for his baby doll, when he notices the viewer. Feeling embarrassed, he tries to save his reputation by claiming the doll belongs to Curly Bear and is being a good brother by playing with her (though Curly doesn't know what he's talking about). He hides the doll behind his back when Telly arrives to show him his new toy - a large bulldozer. Baby Bear puts his doll in her stroller, consoles her and goes to play with Telly.

SCENE cont'd Over by the table, Baby Bear stops Telly from playing, pointing out the bulldozer needs a driver. To keep it realistic, Baby Bear vetoes Telly's idea to use a dinosaur for a driver and instead suggests his baby doll because she's human. They put her in and it's a perfect fit. Baby Bear moves it slow and easy, but when Telly gets hold of it, he drives it through their block tower and off the table. Baby Bear freaks out, telling Telly the game's too rough for the baby. He explains that the doll is special to Curly and points out how "upset" she is. Telly has some action figures with him too and suggests they go play with them instead. Baby Bear rests his doll on the table before leaving.
SCENE cont'd By some flowers, Telly has an assortment of figures to play with. He pretends his kangaroo figure has hopped too high and gets stuck in a tree. Baby Bear has the perfect hero to save it - Super Baby (turning her bib backwards to form a cape). Super Baby rescues the kangaroo, who turns out to be an evil alien kangaroo, who begins to hop on Super Baby. Baby Bear pulls her away, saying Telly's being too rough again and upsetting Curly (who is, apparently, internalizing her feelings).
SCENE cont'd Telly also has a football and they decide to play catch. Baby Bear recommends Wee Little Baby plays with them, noting her hands are made for catching. Telly tosses the ball and they catch it. Telly leaps and tackles Wee Little Baby, causing Baby Bear to blurt out that the doll belongs to him. When he realizes what he's said, he runs away embarrassed.

SCENE cont'd Baby Bear hides out by the stoop, where Gordon exits. Baby Bear explains his problem, saying that dolls are for girls, which makes him ashamed for playing with one. Gordon tells him that things like dolls (and even the color of his shirt) can be enjoyed by both genders and that if it makes him happy, there's no reason for him to be embarrassed. He also says that playing daddy with a doll is great practice for when he becomes a real dad. While Baby Bear goes off to tell Telly the truth, Chris comes by and compliments his uncle's shirt (but learns it's not his size).
SCENE cont'd Baby Bear returns to find Telly's having fun taking care of Wee Little Baby. Baby Bear joins him, while Curly plays with Telly's bulldozer behind them.

Muppets / Animation Abby's Flying Fairy School
Mrs. Sparklenose steers the school to their field trip location: Colonial Trolliamsberg. However, Blogg (being half-Troll) seems down about the trip. When they arrive, the Troll guard asks them a riddle so they can pass: "What has one line down and one line across and you need it to tickle and toss?" The guard also notices Blogg's wings, which he tries claiming are "armpit-coolers". Gonnigan and Abby ask Spot, who shows them the alphabet. They then realize the answer is the letter T.
Inside the town, Blogg makes more attempts to hide his wings by putting a backpack over them (causing everything inside to spill out) and a large sweater. Abby and Gonnigan meet a candlestick maker, who asks them to estimate how many ears full of wax it'll take to make one candle. Gonnigan's guess turns out to be right (6 ears worth). They then head to the center of town, where Garfunkel the Griffin is performing. However, Niblet's flash-photography causes Garfunkel to freak out and angrily fly to the sky and the only to get him down to whisper "Nap time" in his ear. Abby tries, but the person must be a troll. Mrs. Sparklenose explains to Blogg that sometimes "Differences make the difference", boosting his confidence and he flies up to put Garfunkel to sleep. Everyone in the town reveres him.

Muppets Super Grover 2.0
An oyster proposes to his starfish lover, but is knocked of the sand dune and the ring gets lost in the sand. Super Grover 2.0 lands on the scene. He tries to observe the sand, but finds it just falls through his fingers. He discovers a shell in his palm and the creatures suggest he use something to sift the sand and find the ring. Grover pulls a bagel from his utility sock, but it doesn't work as a sifter and is promptly swiped by a seagull. He then pulls some Swiss cheese, which has smaller holes, but doesn't work and the seagull takes it ("The gall of that gull."). He finally pulls out a spaghetti strainer, which makes for a perfect sifter and he finds the ring. He pulls a cake out from his other sock to celebrate and is chased by the gull.
