SCENE Monster on the Spot reporter Telly and "cub reporter" Baby Bear are covering Sesame Street's "Fairy Tale Science Fair", where characters solve their problems with science. The first booth is Little Red Riding Hood's, who will use observation and comparing to figure out which woman is her real grandmother. After comparing them, she can't tell who's who. Telly and Baby Bear help to find the differences and discover one of them is The Big Bad Wolf, who storms off.

SCENE cont'd At the next booth, Cinderella, a science nut, is testing whether or not a pumpkin will float or sink in her tank. The reporters guess it will sink, but it actually floats! Prince Charming arrives to present her with the glass slipper, which she also tests in the tank. They go off to get married, as well as perform more science experiments.

SCENE cont'd Telly and Baby Bear head to the Three Little Pigs' booth, but they're freaking out over the upcoming arrival of the Big Bad Wolf.

Muppets / Animation Abby's Flying Fairy School
Playtime is over for the students and they must clean up. Blögg 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. (re-orchestrated theme song)

(First: Episode 4307)

Muppets Super Grover 2.0: Pretty Good Wall
Super Grover 2.0 comes to the aid of a chicken, who needs to get to the other side of "The Pretty Good Wall of China." Grover observes that she has wings, but she states she can't fly. Next, Grover investigates by trying to ask the wall to shrink down, while the chicken tries to hop over, knocking them both over. Grover browses his utility sock for some technology and finds some springs to help the chicken jump over. The springs are shoddy and cause her to fall onto of him ("Might I say that you are no spring chicken?"). He then pulls out a "hole-poker-ma-bob" (a pole) to pierce the wall. He gets a running start and smashes into the wall. He tries again and the chicken gets in the way, causing him to stick the pole on the ground and he is sent flying. The chicken realizes he's made a lever and uses a larger pole to polevalt over the wall. Grover makes an attempt too, but is flung into the wall again. (no music button)

Muppets Game Show: Are You Smarter Than an Egg Layer?
Jeff Bawksworthy hosts with his contestant, Miriam Cheswick. He gives her the categories for egg-related questions: “Grade A Eggs”, “Grade B Eggs” and “Advanced AP Eggs”. She goes with Grade A. Her question is “What is two eggs plus one egg?” The chickens lock in their answers, but Miriam is clueless. She takes some help from one of the chickens, Megan, whose answer is 3, the right answer! Next, she chooses Grade B Eggs, with the question “What is three eggs plus three eggs?” Miriam, once again, doesn’t know the answer (“I think it has something to do with hydrogen!”) Jeff suggests she ask another chicken, Kyle, who believes the answer is 6. His answer is right and Miriam gets another point. Her final category is Advanced AP Eggs which has the question “How many eggs are in a dozen?” Miriam guesses “a kagillion”, but Jeff makes her ask a chicken, Tandori. His guess is 12, which is right! Despite Miriam not begin smarter than an egg layer, she wins anyway and gets the grand prize: a million bawks! The chickens surround and begin clucking. She remarks “This show’s for the birds!”
