Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN Cookie Monster introduces the four seasons and has a cookie for each one. He concludes any season is best for cookie eating.

SCENE Chris welcomes the viewer and explains it's Spring on the street and displays the tree in the arbor, showing it's covered with leaf buds and watches Telly and Baby Bear play tag together. He also notes it's cool enough for people to eat outdoors, as Mr. Johnson orders some hot soup. Elmo runs to Chris, showing him a sled he found in his closet and is going sledding, until Chris points out that during Spring, there's no snow. As Chris tends to the order, Elmo wishes it were winter. Abby Cadabby poofs in, having heard his wish, and plans to use her mom's weather spell to change the season. With a wave of her wand and the magic words...
SCENE cont'd ...the seasons change, but instead of snow, it's hot and sunny (meaning it's Summer). Chris notes this as he sees the tree is now in full bloom. Mr. Johnson thinks it's too hot for the soup, so he orders some cool gazpacho. Abby tries her spell again and...

SCENE cont'd ...the season changes to Autumn. Leaves are blown at Chris as he takes the bowl outside and he sees the leaf colors have changed. Mr. Johnson's gazpacho is blown onto his lap from the wind and he asks for the hot soup again. Chris brings it, but he asks for crackers too. Baby Bear begins to win their game, until the wind blows their checker board away before he can move. Telly realizes that since it's Fall, they can play football! Abby gives her spell another try and...


SCENE cont'd now becomes Winter! Chris comes outside and is shocked to see this. He then realizes this has been Abby and Elmo's doing as he sleds by. He shows them the reproductions of their actions: Mr. Johnson and his soup are frozen and Baby Bear begins to hibernate. Elmo sees the seasons must come in their own time and has Abby change it back to Spring. She waves her wand and makes it Spring again. Baby Bear wakes up from his nap and continues his game of tag with Telly. Mr. Johnson forgets the soup and orders a larger meal. Chris gets an idea on how Elmo can use his sled in the Spring.
SCENE cont'd Chris has now rigged Elmo's sled with wheels and begins pulling him down the street.

Muppets Smart Cookies: Relaxing on Pecan Sandy Beach
Lady Crunchington hires the Smart Cookies to guard her from the Crumb while she enjoys her day at the beach. The Crumb sneaks by Cookie Monster, disguised as a lobster, and unleashes his "Typhoon Macaroon" into the sea, causing a storm while Lady Crunchington floats in the water. Miss Fortune divines that they need a board to save her and Cookie Monster assumes she means cardboard or an ironing board. Eventually, he thinks about the clue and grabs a surfboard, which they all ride to save Lady Crunchington. They then chase the Crumb down the coastline, Baywatch-style.
Muppets Count von Count and friends sing and stomp to find the number of the day - 4.
