COLD OPEN What's the Word on the Street?: Cheer
(First: Episode 4178)

SCENE Elmo plays with his basketball and welcomes the viewer. He tells them how he’s trying to bounce the ball three times when Zoe walks to him, waving her pompoms and cheering. She explains what a cheerleader is and believes some cheering will help Elmo bounce three times. Lo and behold, her support works and he is able to do it. Elmo wants to be a cheerleader too. He auditions to Zoe, who makes him an official Sesame Street Cheerleader, complete with his own pompoms.

SCENE cont’d Zoe and Elmo cheer down the block and come across Telly, who’s attempting to bounce on his pogo stick three times with a triangle on his head and get a place in the “Guinness Book of Triangle Records”. Zoe and Elmo think up a cheer for Telly and their motivation helps Telly succeed. Telly notices how much fun it looks to be a cheerleader and wants to be one too. After he auditions, Zoe and Elmo deem his worthy and give him his pompoms. They go find someone else to cheer for.
SCENE cont’d Gordon and Alan are playing a game of chess and Alan tries to think of a move. Suddenly, the three cheerleaders pop up and begin cheering for Alan. They inform the monsters that chess is a quiet game and doesn’t need loud cheering, so they start cheering quieter. They then cheer without any sound, but their pompoms mess up their game board. Gordon tells them that chess is not a game that requires cheering and they go off on their way.

SCENE cont’d They look for someone else to cheer for, but everyone they ask, including Maria and a chicken, are too busy. Telly believes they should just stop cheering, until Elmo realizes that they can cheer for themselves!

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.

At a lemonade stand in the tundra, some animals discover their pink lemonade is frozen solid. When Grover lands on the scene, he tries thawing it by shaking it and using his jackhammer, but just breaks it up into still-frozen pieces. One animal wonders if heating it up will melt it. Grover gives it a try and gives the pitcher his earmuffs, scarf and gloves, then starts feeling cold himself. The moose instead gets his hairdryer and successfully melts the frozen lemonade. He then uses it on a now-frozen Super Grover.
