Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN Elmo sets up today's theme of hair, which his monster friend Marty loudly declares over and over.
SCENE 1 Prairie Dawn and her friend Gabrielle are making up a new dance together. When Prairie proposes a move where they whip their hair back and forth, Gabrielle notices her hair can't move the way Prairie's does. They run off to find Nina, who might be able to fix the problem.
SCENE 1 cont'd Nina tries doing Prairie's hair in poofs like Gabrielle, but finds her hair can't work like that. They think their dance will be ruined, but Nina encourages them keep both hair movements in the dance.

SCENE 1 cont'd The girls continue practicing, attracting Elmo's attention. He finds he doesn't have hair, but tries to remedy that with a mop-top wig. It immediately flies off his head and onto Cookie Monster's plate. He eats it, assuming it's pasta. The girls tell Elmo he can still dance, just allowing his fur to move as it can.
SCENE 1 cont'd Big Bird sees them all practicing and wonders if he can join, even though he doesn't have hair or fur. He shows off how he can shake his tail feathers, which makes a perfect addition to their dance. Prairie jumps at his suggestion to put on a show for the neighborhood and Nina asks to join as well.
