Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN What's the Word on the Street?: Unique
SCENE Elmo and Leela welcome the viewer, when they're approached by Judy, who's looking for Abby Cadabby. Abby poofs in and Judy explains her situation - she needs help with her story, Judy and the Beast (Beauty, of the other story, is her cousin), as she doesn't have a beast. That's where Abby comes in; as her fairy godmother, she needs her to conjure up a unique beast, which she describes in song.

SCENE cont'd Abby waves her wand and conjures up a beast for Judy - a lobster, who sings a short song about himself. Judy thinks he'll work fine as her beast, until he clamps onto her nose, as per lobster instinct. She feels he's not right and Leela gives him directions back to the ocean. Next in Judy's story, Judy musically wishes for a softer, more gentle beast to be friends with.

SCENE cont'd Abby complies with Judy's wish and poofs in a kangaroo, who also sings a song about his species. Judy thinks he's a fine beast and he lets her onto his back for a good hop. His hopping's too forceful for her and she flies right off. Again, Judy doesn't think he's right and Leela tells him the way back to Australia ("Turn right at Hooper's Store and, uh, keep hopping.").

SCENE cont'd Leela has an idea to help Judy. She retrieves a book full of animal pictures and they browse through, until Judy spots the right one - a horse. Abby poofs a horse in, who starts going wild. Abby thinks she should send it back, until Judy is able to tame it and become friends. She's now found her prefect beast and (after singing about her new friend) rides off down the street on him.
Muppets / Celebrity Usher and Bert talk about the word unique. Usher doesn't think Bert's paperclip and bottle cap are as unique as a sombrero-wearing, pogo-jumping shrimp or a taxi-driving cabbage, but thinks his dance moves are.

Muppets Since Abby's Flying Fairy School is coming up, Murray is taking us to school. He first gives a lesson on raising hands. Ovejita appears and he follows his little lamb to Little Vet School.
Muppets Oscar messes with Cookie Monster by hanging an H cookie from a rope, high out of his reach, and the only way to get it is with H words. Hopping and a hook fail, but Cookie gets another idea - he gets some happy horses who hum in harmony to annoy Oscar enough to drop it.

Muppets Super Grover 2.0
On a country road, a horse can't get his cart to move, when Super Grover 2.0 lands on the scene. Using his powers of observation, he finds some "stick-thingies" on the front that he tries to use as an activation switch. The horse thinks they are used for pulling the cart and Grover runs off and retrieves a worm to pull the cart. The horse thinks the worm is too small and they need some force to move it. Grover returns with a chicken, which should provide a larger force. The chicken pulls her best, but instead lays an egg and goes off on maternity leave. Grover brings a pig, who is able to move the cart a few feet before getting "oinked-out." The horse points out that Grover is bigger than the pig and he could move the cart. Grover situates himself into the reigns and begins to pull the horse down the road.
