Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN Elmo is with his mommy and daddy to demonstrate today's topic of families, and he initiates a couple of group hugs.
(First: Episode 5127)
SCENE 1 Elmo checks up on Mia, who is working on a project for school about her family, but she doesn't know where to start. Her parents arrive, having just finished shopping for Shabbat dinner, a special meal they have every Friday. They're making ropa vieja, Mia's favorite dish. The three explain to Elmo about culture and that their family shares two cultures. Frank is Jewish, which is why the family has Shabbat dinner. Dave is Cuban, which is why they're making ropa vieja, a Cuban dish.

SCENE 1 cont'd Dave and Frank leave, and Mia is reminded she still is unsure what to do with her project. She sings a song about her predicament, joined by some monster backup singers, which gives her the idea to write a musical for her project. She ponders how to make a great musical, and a tap-dancing vine of grapes (Stephanie D'Abruzzo) arrives to perform, thinking Mia said, "grape musical." The grapes leave in disappointment once corrected.


SCENE 1 cont'd Nina runs into the two and offers to help Mia write her musical. She explains that a musical needs an opening number, and Mia elects to make the opening number about her dads' two different cultures. She performs the song, and after explains her family's traditions with Dave and Frank, which leads to a song about traditions.


SCENE 1 cont'd The music changes, and the family sings about their New Year's traditions. Frank sings about a Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) tradition in which they eat apples and honey to bring sweetness for the coming year. Dave sings about the Spanish tradition of eating twelve grapes to bring good luck for the new year. The grapes from earlier show up again at this part but once again have to leave in disappointment. Mia then starts singing about bedtime, when her dads sing her lullabies (one in Spanish, one in Hebrew). Mia concludes with one final song, and after, Frank invites everyone to Shabbat dinner. The grapes once again arrive, mishearing Nina's "that's great," and are invited as well.

Nature Explorers Title Card

Cartoon Sesame Street Nature Explorers
On their nature walk, Elmo, Gabrielle, and Tango discover a family of robins. Grandma Nell teaches the kids what a fledgling is (a baby bird who's ready to leave the nest and learn to fly), which leads Elmo to wonder how fledglings learn to fly. One of the fledglings attempts to fly but falls on the ground, which leads Super Grover to come to its rescue. Nell stops any intervention, as its family is able to help it. The fledgling's father leaves it temporarily, inviting Grover to teach it to fly. Grover's lesson goes haywire, and he flies away uncontrollably. The fledgling finds its father, who holds food on top of things to encourage the fledgling to fly for it. The fledgling successfully flies atop a bush and is rewarded with a snack.
SCENE 2 Mia and Elmo sign off, and the grapes returns once more, despite their words sounding nothing like "grapes."
