Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN Elmo and three colorful monsters harmonize as they set up today's theme of colors.

SCENE 1 Elmo welcomes the viewer as he makes a drawing using all the colors when he notices a rainbow in the sky. He calls everyone over to see it. Rosita rushes to him, to see her first rainbow, but by the time she looks up, the rainbow has vanished.
SCENE 1 cont'd Leela passes by and finds them looking for the rainbow under the table. She explains rainbows can only be found in the sky and cheers them up by drawing a rainbow for them, using the acronym “Roy G. Biv” to remember the names of the colors.

SCENE 1 cont'd Although Rosita likes the drawing, she still wishes she could see a real rainbow. Elmo gets an idea to make a monster rainbow. He runs off and gets a monster of every color of the rainbow (including Narf and Lulu). They try to get into a formation, but collide and fall to the ground in color order.
SCENE 1 cont'd The monsters pick themselves up and leave, while Rosita still wishes for a rainbow. Abby Cadabby overhears and appears to grant her wish. She tries waving her wand, but causes a rain storm. She leaves to consult her mom, while the two monsters head into Hooper's Store for shelter.

SCENE cont'd Inside Hooper’s, Gordon gives Rosita a rainbow using science. He shines a flashlight through a cup of water, which breaks up the white light and separates the colors so they all show, making a rainbow. The rainstorm ends, so the monsters head out.
SCENE 1 cont'd Once outside, Elmo spots a rainbow in the sky.
