Series Elmo's Neighborhood

The Fix-It Shop is a 2001 Sesame Street storybook in the "Elmo's Neighborhood" series.

Elmo has been looking for a lost puppy, but Bert asks him to help watch the Fix-It Shop for Luis and Maria while they are gone. After opening for business, their first customer is Herry Monster, who is upset because his toy monster is in need of repair. Bert tells him he will ask Maria and Luis to fix it tomorrow, but he cries because he cannot sleep without his doll at night, so the two substitute managers decide to fix the doll themselves.

While they are fixing it, Snuffy comes in with a broken chair that his Uncle Phineus sat on and broke, and Ernie requests a new wheel for his broken wagon. After they have helped all the other customers, the duo finish cleaning up Herry's doll, and head home for the night. Elmo remembers the puppy he had been searching for, and Bert assures Elmo that the puppy found a nice place to nap.

The toy monster is not identified as Hercules, but the injured doll is very similar to Herry's monster doll.
