Fetch The Letter I (Episode #4227H)

KQED Plus: Tue, Apr 15, 2014 -- 12:00 PM

Telly and Elmo are sitting at a table building letters with their new "Letter of the Day" kit. They use one long piece and two little pieces to make the letter "I". Elmo and Telly imagine things that begin with the letter "I" such as igloo, insect, and iguana. 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! Telly and Elmo realize Iggy inspired them to think of lots of "I" words and they sing all about the incredible Iggy! THEME: Literacy I / 20

Sock Chaos at the Laundromat (Episode #4241H)

KQED Plus: Thu, Apr 10, 2014 -- 12:00 PM

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

KQED Plus: Tue, Apr 8, 2014 -- 12:00 PM

It's a very windy day on Sesame Street. Elmo and Telly are just about to play a game of basketball. When they return from eating a healthy power snack, their ball is missing! 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

The Flood (Episode #4276H)

KQED Plus: Tue, Apr 1, 2014 -- 12:00 PM

Gordon and Susan are getting ready to go to sleep after a long day when they suddenly hear water gushing. When they look out the window, they see Ernie and Bert float by on their beds. While Susan rushes off to tell Maria and Luis about the flood, Gordon brings Bert and Ernie inside their apartment. As he and Susan try to settle them down to sleep, Luis and Maria tackle the water pipe leak in the basement. When Oscar pops in to "help," he startles Maria and the valve handle falls into the water. Oscar happens to have a snorkel on, so he dives under water to look for the valve handle which has a circle in the middle. First he pops up with a tricycle tire which is shaped like a circle, but clearly won't work as a valve handle. Then he pops up with an old flute. When Maria tries to use it as a valve handle, she observes that circles in the flute actually fit over the circle on the valve. Maria stops the big leak! Maria and Luis then turn to the plumbing blueprints to guide and help them fix the broken pipes. They see that a curvy piece of pipe is missing and Oscar once more dives down to see what he can find. After popping up with a straight paintbrush and a curvy straw which won't work, he finds a vacuum hose. Maria bends it into the right shape and uses it to fix the leak! Finally Ernie and Bert fall asleep as Maria and Luis come upstairs to tell everyone the good news and how Oscar helped save the day!
