(First: Episode 4631)

SCENE 1 Alan watches as Elmo, Abby, and Rosita practice for their upcoming tee-ball game. They all compliment Elmo on how well he plays, especially since he seems to get better and better. Elmo attributes his success to his lucky charm - a mint-condition Joe DiMonstrio baseball card he keeps in his pocket. He demonstrates how well it helps him throw and catch, though Alan plants the idea that maybe lots of practice is what really has helped him; Elmo doesn't agree.

SCENE 1 cont'd The team (the Slimey Sluggers) waits for their opponents, the T-Rexes, to arrive. They fear they might be giant and fierce, but are actually a pleasant group of regular kids (which includes Suri Marrero). A squirrel shows up as the scorekeeper, having arrived late from putting together his nest. As everyone gets into their pre-game celebration, Elmo doesn't notice his lucky card fall out of his pocket. The squirrel discovers it and believes it will make a fine poster in his nest.
SCENE 1 cont'd The two teams play ball and after four innings, the scorekeeper announces a tie game with only one inning left.


SCENE 1 cont'd The Slimey Sluggers are certain they can pull off one more run, especially with how well Elmo has been playing. He realizes he's lost his lucky charm, but nobody can see it anywhere on the ground. He steps up to bat, but doesn't have the confidence to hit the ball, earning two strikes. Alan calls a time out to give Elmo a pep talk. They convince him that since he never had his card during the game, his successes have all been his own. He steps up to the plate and delivers a grand-slam that busts the lights on the neon Hooper's Store sign. He makes it back home and they see the squirrel's nest with Elmo's card. Elmo tells him to keep it; he can play tee-ball without it.

Muppets Smart Cookies: The Gingerbread Man
The team arrives at the city track to keep the Crumb away while the Gingerbread Man practices for a big race. The Crumb slips by Cookie Monster again and uses ice-ing to freeze the track, causing the Gingerbread Man to slide around. Miss Fortune tells them they need something that comes in pairs to save the Gingerbread Man. Cookie Monster tries out a pair of bunny ears, then a pair of stilts, neither of which help him move on the ice. Finally, he grabs a pair of ice skates and he and Chipowski rescue the Gingerbread Man, who remains in danger when Cookie Monster runs after him in need of a snack. (edited)
