Muppets Cookie Monster and friends sing as they wait for the number of the day, which is how many cookies are being baked for him (to eat). Today's number is 0. Because this means no cookies, The Count presents him with an empty plate, which Cookie eats instead.

She places a large anvil at the playground walls and not even Mighty Elmo can move it. Baddy McBad topples over while manically laughing and is unable to get up.
