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

SCENE Elmo, Rosita and the letter J are singing a song about J words. After J leaves, the letter G appears, saying he can make the "juh" sound too, as well has the hard-G sound. He's upset that he doesn't have a song like J does. The monsters start singing the "J Friends" song again, but with G-names instead, but the letter stops them; that's J's song and he wants one unique to him.
SCENE cont'd Upon hearing the word "help," Super Grover crashes onto the scene. He offers some song ideas for the letter ("Row, Row, Row Your Boat" in the key of G and "C is for Cookie"), then learns that they want an original composition. Since "Grover" begins with G, he sings a heroic song full of G words that describe his heroism. The G doesn't think the song suits him well and Grover gallops off to his next gig.
SCENE cont'd Oscar complains about the singing around his trash can and offers to write a song of his own, since there are many Grouchy G-words. His song also doesn't please the G, who thinks it's too yucky.

SCENE cont'd The G doesn't think he'll ever achieve his "goofy dream" of having his own song, when Rosita gets an idea. She gets her guitarra and sings a song full of G words in Spanish. The G again turns it down, thinking it's too slow for a letter that likes to get up and go like him. Elmo realizes "Go" starts with G and makes up an upbeat G song that gets them all grooving; a disgusted Oscar even adds a "groan" verse to their song. The G loves his song and they continue grooving.
Muppets / Celebrity Ed Helms shows what a "grimace" is, with a grimace expert judging them.

Film / Animation Two girls find G words.
Muppets G: The G Club is preparing for the G-gionals and sings a short song about the guh sound of G. Gym teacher Sue and her Geerios arrive and sing their own song, which stresses the juh sound. As the two groups argue over which sound is the correct one, the actual letter G appears to explain he makes both sounds. The two work together and sing a song about both sounds.

Muppets / Animation Abby's Flying Fairy School
The students are in the middle of music class, but the music they make isn't too great. Abby requests they just use magic to play their instruments, but Mrs. Sparklenose says practice is the right path. A flying boombox swoops in the window and they press "play," releasing Morty the Musical Muse (who speaks in rhyme). Before he can leave, they must pass his three challenges. With a wave of his baton, Abby's trombone flies out of control. In order to get down, she must change the pitch; by playing high notes, she goes higher, and playing low notes, she makes it back to the ground. Next, Gonnigan's maracas shake violently, quaking the entire school. To top them, he needs to change the tempo. He discovers that means fast and slow and is able to stop the shaking by moving them slowly. Finally, Blogg's drum starts bouncing on top of him and must change the dynamics of the music (how loud and soft). Blogg grabs the drum and plays it softly, sedating it. The students have learned many new things about music and Morty takes his leave. The kids decide to apply their knowledge and make music instead of snack time.

Muppets Murray and the kids introduce "Super Grover 2.0."

Muppets Super Grover 2.0
A sheep and an elephant find that their boat is uneven and cry for help. Super Grover 2.0 crashes onto the dock and observes that they're going for a ride and starts to leave, until he sees their boat isn't leveled. He uses his powers of investigation and claims they're on the wrong sides. They switch places, but the boat is still uneven. He thinks he can make the elephant lighter by having him remove his hat, but it doesn't work, but they could make the sheep's side heavier to match the elephant's weight. Grover zooms off and gets two more sheep and throws them into the boat, which makes it almost proportional, but not enough. Grover can't find anymore sheep and instead, dresses as a sheep and hops into the boat, making each side even. The elephant gets out to untie the boat from the dock, sending Grover and the sheep flying into the lake.

Muppets Elmo the Musical: Guacamole the Musical
Elmo imagines himself as Chef Explorer Elmo, who is stationed in the jungles of Nacho Pichu. He is greeted by The Queen of Nacho Picchu, who commissions him to find a dip for her large tortilla chip. Velvet recommends Elmo contact the Rhombus of Recipes, who provides him with directions to make guacamole. First, he visits the Valley of the Whistling Nose, where Nose McDonald helps him pick 14 avocados for the meal. Next, he heads to the Temple of Spoons for some onion. Elmo takes a sample without measuring the three spoon-fulls he needs and the temple begins to crumble. He measures the onion and magically gets a bowl of guacamole. He brings it back to the Queen, who doesn't like it...she loves it! They all celebrate by doing a guacamole dance.
