Sock Chaos at the Laundromat (Episode #4241H)

KQED 9: Mon, Jul 28, 2014 -- 11:00 AM

Chris is doing his laundry at the Sesame Street Laundromat. When he is folding his clothes, he discovers that a sock is missing. All socks come in pairs so he needs to find the matching sock. Abby appears and has a new "two trick" that turns one thing into two things. Abby waves her wand and makes a pink polka dot sock appear but it doesn't match Chris' striped sock. Abby tries another trick called the "more trick" that her mommy uses when she needs "more" of something. Four different socks appear - an argyle sock with diamond shapes, a white gym sock that does jumping jacks, a baseball playing red sock and a baby sock. They don't match Chris' striped sock either, but they do sing and dance "the five-sock conga". Just then, another customer at the laundromat finds a sock which got into her laundry by mistake. It's Chris' matching sock! Chris rushes out of the Sesame Street Laundromat with the five socks congaing after him looking for a new home and a warm drawer to curl up in. THEME: Mathematics K / 5

Elmo and the Monarch Butterfly (Episode #4268H)

KQED Plus: Sun, Jul 27, 2014 -- 7:30 AM

Elmo and Telly are reading the book Fascinating Facts About Insects. First they see two ants, and after looking at them through their magnifying glass, they learn that ants never sleep. Next they see two ladybugs and learn that ladybugs smell with their feet. When a butterfly flutters in, they wonder where his friends are and worry that he is lonely. Elmo decides to pretend to be a butterfly so he will have a friend, but the butterfly won't come over to Elmo. Telly checks the book and learns that butterflies go through a metamorphosis, or a big change, which is made up of 4 stages-starting as an egg and changing into a caterpillar then a chrysalis and finally a butterfly. Maybe if Elmo pretends to go through the four stages, the butterfly will think Elmo is a butterfly and be his friend. It works and the butterfly flutters over and lands on Elmo. They head over to Hooper's for a snack, and after checking their book, they learn that butterflies actually drink nectar from flowers or juice from fruit. Chris prepares them a snack of sliced oranges and they watch the butterfly drink with his proboscis, which is a curly little thing that unrolls and becomes like a straw that he drinks through. As Elmo begins drawing a picture of his new friend, Chris explains that he is a Monach butterfly. All of a sudden lots more Monarch butterflies flutter in and Telly checks the book and explains that Monarch butterflies migrate, or move, when the seasons change. The weather is just too cold on Sesame Street in the winter. Elmo is sad that his friend is leaving, but he will always have his picture to remember him by.

Suddenly, Iggy the dog, who is supposed to be fetching a stick with Rosita, comes and takes the letter "I!" Telly and Elmo chase Iggy, but can't catch him. How will they get him to drop their letter "I?" They think hard and decide to go incognito, or in disguise, as leafy bushes. The bushes make Elmo's nose itch. When he sneezes, he blows their cover and scares Iggy. They think again and come up with another idea: they will tickle Iggy's nose. This works, but the letter "I" goes flying, bounces off of Telly's head, and lands back in Iggy's mouth. They think again and decide to give Iggy doggy ice cream. Just when Iggy goes to eat it, Telly tries to grab the letter but Iggy snatches the letter and runs off. As they continue chasing Iggy, they run into Rosita. Iggy returns the letter to Rosita, since he thought they were playing fetch the whole time!

Observe, Record, Annoy (Episode #4260H)

KQED 9: Wed, Jul 2, 2014 -- 11:00 AM

Oscar is taking a computer class in Grouchology where the golden rule is to observe, record, and annoy. The first question that he must investigate is "What do worms like to squirm on best?" Professor Messla tells him he must set up an experiment where he observes (watches closely and carefully), records (writes down what he discovers), and annoy someone while he is doing it. Oscar heads over to Hooper's where he pours coffee grinds and olive oil all over Alan's nice clean counter. He observes the worms in the mess, and marks down what he sees on his chart. He succeeds in annoying Alan, and concludes that most of the worms like to squirm in the olive oil. The second question to investigate is "What stinky smell will make people scram?" He finds Gina and Leela playing cards and tries to make them scram with garlic, an old piece of cheese, and finally his own stinky socks. He observes, records and annoys them both as they finally flee holding their noses from his smelly socks. Oscar's final question is "What noise is loud enough to wake up Luis and Maria?" He blasts a vuvuzela horn and observes and records that it wakes up Maria, but not Luis. As she shouts at Oscar to let her get some sleep, Luis wakes up from her yelling. Oscar concludes Maria's shrill screaming is the loudest noise of all. He reports what he discovered in each experiment to Professor Messla and collects his stinky diploma in Grouchology. Now it's time for a loud, annoying party.

It's a real mystery and they need to investigate to solve the problem! First, Telly writes down what they already know about the mystery! Then, he forms a hypothesis, or a guess, that Abby must have made the basketball disappear because she's able to do magic. Abby tells them that she was with the seven dwarves so it couldn't have been her. Telly and Elmo investigate further and Elmo suggests that they look under the table. The basketball isn't there and now Telly's notebook and crayon have vanished making the mystery even more mysterious! Elmo discovers a new clue and after thinking about where he's heard this "whoosh" sound before, he forms a new hypothesis- the Big Bad Wolf did it! The Big Bad Wolf explains that it wasn't him either. Now they hear the "whoosh" again and Telly's hat is missing! This time they also feel a tickle but don't see anything. Leela comes by and helps them piece all the clues together. What can be all around that you can sometimes hear and feel, but can't see? Wind! Elmo and Telly experiment and test out their new hypothesis and see if the wind made their things disappear. They follow a leaf flying in the wind and find all of their missing things. Their hypothesis was right- the wind made the objects disappear! They solved the mystery! THEME: Science J / 17
