Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN Big Bird tells the viewer that today's show is all about grandparents and is visited by Granny Bird. She's knitted him a sweater that unfortunately shrunk in the wash, but makes a perfect fit for Radar.

SCENE 1 Hooper's Store is throwing a special party for kids and their grandparents in the arbor. Elmo tells Chris and Alan how excited he is to see his grandma and grandpa, as he hasn't seen them in a long time (and they live far away). Elmo leads Rosita, Baby Bear and the rest of the party in a song in praise of the grandparents.
SCENE 1 cont'd After the song, Chris calls Elmo over with some bad news - the flight his grandparents were going in on was cancelled and they won't be arriving until tomorrow, when the celebration will be over. Elmo is saddened, but is suddenly pulled away by Baby Bear.
SCENE 1 cont'd Elmo is still upset his grandparents aren't coming, but tries to replace them by having Alan and Chris dress like them (as well as do their voices correctly). Rosita drags him off too, and Alan and Chris go change (though Chris finds himself enjoying the dress).
SCENE 1 cont'd Rosita introduces Elmo to her abuela, who sings a traditional Mexican song with them. They suddenly hear a strange beeping...

SCENE 1 cont'd ...coming from Grampy Bear's laptop, which he doesn't know how to fix. Chris gets an idea and borrows it. He calls over Elmo, having set up a video chat with his grandparents. They apologize for their absence and Elmo begins introducing them to all his friends.
