Series Elmo's Neighborhood

Elmo and Grover spend a day at the community center. While Elmo does not forget about the little lost black puppy, he is kept very busy. First they see Herry Monster lifting weights. Then they go to swimming lessons, where Elmo learns to do the crawl. After drying their fur, they decided to play basketball. Next up is Karate class. Finally they listen to Bert reading a poem at a poetry reading in the auditorium. Worn out they sit down to wait for Grover's mom, but fall asleep before she arrives.
