(First: Episode 4608)


SCENE 1 Elmo poses as a paleontologist, inspired by his book, When Dinosaurs Walked on Sesame Street. He tells the viewer they'll be seeing lots of dinosaurs, including Chris, who's dressed as a stegosaurus. The rest of the gang (Grover, Cookie Monster, Abby, Ernie, Bert, Telly, Rosita and Prairie Dawn) join as all types of dinosaurs as Elmo and Chris sing about the dinosaurs that walked on the street long ago. Afterward, Big Bird calls Elmo over to his nest, unable to find his dinosaur costume. Elmo is sure he'll find it and play dinosaur along with everyone else.
SCENE 1 cont'd Next, Elmo leads a game of "Feed the Dinosaur." Abby (as a triceratops) and Cookie Monster (a T-rex) arrive, representing herbivores and carnivores (respectively). Grover the Dinosaur Waiter brings in some foods and the viewer guesses which dinosaur it would be eaten by.

SCENE 1 cont'd Big Bird comes by, upset because his costume is lost. Chris finds an interesting fact in the book - birds are descendants of feathered dinosaurs, meaning Big Bird himself is a dinosaur! He leads everybody on a musical walk around the street, since they can now see a real dinosaur walk on Sesame Street.

(First: Episode 5010)
Celebrity Elmo, Abby, and Tamir meet "famous dinosaur finder" Dan Levy. Elmo assumes Dan finds dinosaurs all the time, but Dan says he hasn't seen one, just bones and footprints. Tamir points out the importance of fossils, but Dan insists they're not as good as the real thing. He then asks fellow dino finder Dr. Bucky if he's found any, but Bucky hasn't seen a pteranodon or T-rex anywhere. However, the kids make Dan realize Dr. Bucky is a dinosaur. He's very tall and has a long neck and long tail; he's a brachiosaurus! The finders report their discovery to their other team members--both of whom leave Elmo, Abby, and Tamir in awe due to their dino resemblance.

Cartoon Sesame Street Nature Explorers
At the park, Tango finds a trail of footprints she, Elmo, and Gabrielle can't identify. Having been reading a book on dinosaurs, Elmo and Gabrielle wonder if they're dinosaur tracks. The three follow the steps, and they find a duck is who made the prints. They then hear an unfamiliar noise. They wonder if it came from a dinosaur, but they come to find it came from a bird. They later find eggshells and once again suspect dino origins, but they quickly realize the shells were the result of a baby bird hatching. Grandma Nell arrives and hears the kids' disappointment that they found no dinosaurs, but she teaches them that birds are (descendants of) dinosaurs.
SCENE 2 Big Bird and a fellow dino talk about their upcoming playdate. With Elmo, the two say goodbye, and the dino shakes the ground in the process.
