Muppets Cookie's Crumby Pictures presents Lord of the Crumbs (Rated DG: For Delayed Gratification)
Cookie Monster plays Gobble, a monster who has eaten "the one dessert to rule them all," then loses the recipe. Soon, a magical elf provides him with the ingredients to restore cookies to the land of Monster Earth, but he'll need to remember the recipe to make them. Gobble's less-in-control half thinks they should eat the ingredients now, but Gobble understands he can have real cookies if he just waits. Using a rhyming strategy he came up with, Gobble is able to remember the recipe and bake the cookies, which he promptly gobbles.

Muppets / Animation Abby's Flying Fairy School
The fairies are having lunch and Blogg is disappointed at the size of his sandwich (which is several stacks high). With a spell, he conjures a large lunchbox that belongs to Pandora. Mrs. Sparklenose warns the students not to open it. Gonnigan loses control of his wings in fright and hits the lunchbox, opening it and releasing some large and rambunctious snacks. They inspect the lunchbox and find some shapes at the bottom, which should match the shape of each item. Discovering that the juice box is a rectangle, the wrap is a circle and the chips form a hexagon, they are able to put them back in their places. Pandora arrives to pick up her lunchbox and offers them some of her food...

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.
