Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN Rosita, surrounded by footwear, sets up today's theme of shoes.

SCENE 1 Rosita informs the viewer that today, a new shoe store is opening on Sesame Street, owned by none-other than Cinderella. She shows off her favorite sneakers, which she's wearing with her dress for the special occasion. A duke rushes in, asking Rosita if she's seen a young, beautiful woman around. Eventually, he discovers a glass slipper in the arbor, then finds Cinderella (Lucy Liu) hiding nearby. She's ready for another round of hide-and-seek, but the Duke tells her she must be ready to open the shoe store. Cinderella admits she no longer wishes to be a princess; she never gets to have any real fun, plus her fancy shoes hurt her feet. She distracts him and dashes off.


SCENE 1 cont'd Cinderlla bumps into Rosita outside the shoe store and asks her for help hiding. They avoid the duke inside the subway station. Cinderella, trying to keep her identity a secret, introduces herself to Rosita as "Cindy." The two try to play hopscotch, but Cindy's slippers cause her to slip. The same happens when she tries to ride a bike. Rosita shows off her favorite pair of sneakers, which allow her to do anything. Cindy used to have a pair as well, when she still lived with her wicked stepmother, and the two sing about "My Favorite Sneakers." Cindy places an order for shoes like Rosita's.


SCENE 1 cont'd Abby Cadabby joins the congregation outside the shoe store. Being a friend of the royal family, the duke exchanges quick pleasantries before asking about Cinderella's whereabouts. He frets she's truly quit being a princess, when she arrives at the store. Rosita is surprised to learn she's really Cinderella. Just then, postman Grover delivers several shoeboxes to Cinderella. Abby magically puts Cinderella's new sneakers on her feet. Cinderella reveals she's ordered enough of them for the store. She invites Rosita to help with the ribbon-cutting, then the two run off for another round of hopscotch.
