(First: Episode 5130)

SCENE 1 At the community center, Elmo, Nina, Rosita, Julia and the kids sing "The Alphabet Song." Julia and the kids leave to play, while Elmo plans to finish his drawing, which he's written his name on. Suddenly, the letter M in his name vanishes. They rush outside and see the same has happened to the street and Laundromat signs.


SCENE 1 cont'd Have no fear, because Super Grover lands on the scene to solve the case! He goes off looking for the missing Ms, as a farmer arrives to show the effect it's had on his two cows (including Gladys) - they "oo" instead of "moo." Super Grover returns with the letter B and, when he's told he's wrong, suggests they put B in the place of the M in all words. Nina shows how that would affect everything and the cows start to "boo" the farmer.

SCENE 1 cont'd The trio find more trouble in Hooper's Store, where the milk Alan has for Telly's lunch has become "ilk." Grover returns, only now with the letter N. The cows start making a mess of the store, now going "noo," and the farmer tries taking them back to the farm ("...and I won't take noo for an answer!").

SCENE 1 cont'd Following Nina's description of how an M is shaped, Grover believes he's found the letter M, but everyone is quick to point out it's really a W. Elmo notices something is off about the letter - his face is upside down. Turning him right side up, they see he's really the letter M! He admits he wanted to become a different letter, not feeling like he starts enough exciting words. They show and tell him the many great words he begins and he decides to remain an M, as all the words around the street are restored.
