Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN The Martians call Elmo to tell him all about today's theme: astronauts.
SCENE 1 Elmo, Abby, and Cookie Monster are dressed as astronauts to play an online multiplayer game, titled Astro Team Alpha.

SCENE 1 cont'd The game follows Astronaut Mae Jemison, who contacts the Astro Team Alpha to help her on her mission. Their first task is to bring over to the rocket, three rovers: one with a crane, one with a rocket booster, and one with a bulldozer, before time runs out. The three gladly take the offer, and sing their way there.

SCENE 1 cont'd The journey is not without trouble however, which they find out when noticing a big gap in their path. Abby wonders if there's something they can use to fill the gap. After thinking for a bit, Elmo notices some moon rocks, what if Abby uses her crane to fill the gap with them? The team tries it out, and it works!

SCENE 1 cont'd When they make it past the bridge, they come across a crater. Due to its resemblance to a cookie, Cookie Monster gets curious and drives right inside of it. This, unsurprisingly, turns out to not be a good idea, as he gets his rover stuck inside. The three put their heads together and come up with a plan: Cookie Monster will use his rocket booster to get out. The plan is a failure, all it does is create a pile of dirt. This doesn't seem useful, until they realize they can use Elmo's bulldozer to create a ramp out of the dirt pile.


SCENE 1 cont'd There is not much time left on the clock, and Abby mentions that Cookie can simply go without her and Elmo, as he is faster with his rocket booster. Cookie Monster is not okay with that, as they are a team, and they work together. His plan is for Abby and Elmo to hold on to the end of his rover, so that they all go as fast as him. They made it! Now they can all fly home together.
