Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN Grover introduces today's theme of boo-boo bandages and shows off one on his elbow.

SCENE Elmo and Chris see Abby sticking boo-boo bandages all over herself and her plants, believing they are stickers. Oscar, appearing from the compost bin, is disgusted by the cute fixtures. Chris explains the purpose of the bandage and shows them one he has covering a scrape (which Oscar likes). Abby and Elmo find bandages very interesting and want to help out others with boo-boos. With a spell and a song, Abby and Elmo form the Boo Boo Busters! They hear the sound of someone in pain and rush off to help them.

SCENE cont'd They find Big Bird, who has a scrape on his beak. They walk him through their procedure - first, Elmo checks Big Bird's heartbeat. Next, Abby cleans the scrape area with an antiseptic wipe. Then, they apply a cute, birdie bandage and give him the boo-boo "kiss-kiss." Oscar, watching the whole ordeal from nearby, is even more appalled and splits. The Boo-Boo Busters hear more cries of pain and head off.

SCENE cont'd They reach the Two-Headed Monster, who have boo-boos on their noses. The monster is afraid to have the wipes, because of the sting it gives. Chris teaches them to calm down with some belly breathing and they feel fine after being wiped. They receive some bandages covered with hearts and more kisses.
SCENE cont'd Oscar, back in his normal trash can, can't take anymore and goes inside, slamming the lid on his finger by accident. He reluctantly allows the Boo-Boo Busters to take care of his finger, even giving him a stinky fish bandage. He becomes angry when they kiss his boo-boo, however.

Muppets Elmo and the gang introduce the letter of the day, B, with a song and dance.

Muppets Smart Cookies: The Gingerbread Man
The team arrives at the city track to keep the Crumb away while the Gingerbread Man practices for a big race. The Crumb slips by Cookie Monster again and uses ice-ing to freeze the track, causing the Gingerbread Man to slide around. Miss Fortune tells them they need something that comes in pairs to save the Gingerbread Man. Cookie Monster tries out a pair of bunny ears, then a pair of stilts, neither of which help him move on the ice. Finally, he grabs a pair of ice skates and he and Chipowski rescue the Gingerbread Man, who remains in danger when Cookie Monster runs after him in need of a snack.
Muppets Count von Count and friends sing and stomp to find the number of the day - 13.
