Alan overhears the problem and suggests using arts and crafts to make Rocco a friend. Together, Elmo and Zoe use stickers and cotton to make a face and hair on the balloon. Rocco tries to play with Balloon-o, but Balloon-o floats away. Alan sees what happened and explains that Balloon-o floated away because he was filled with helium, which is lighter than air. Elmo tries to find Rocco a friend made of something that is heavier than a balloon and is round, so he returns with an egg. An egg is an oval but it will do. Zoe and Elmo draw a face on the egg with crayon and give it boots and a hat. Rocco begins playing pat-a-cake with Eggy, but Eggy accidentally breaks. Alan explains that Eggy broke because egg shells are very fragile. Elmo now needs to find a friend who is not too light or too fragile and is round. He notices Alan grabbing for a round sponge and thinks that the sponge could be the perfect play date friend for Rocco. Elmo explains that a sponge isn't lighter than air so it won't float away, and it's not fragile so it won't crack. Together, Zoe and Elmo create a face for Spongerino using stickers, paper, an eraser, and string. Now Rocco has the perfect friend to play with. duration 58:46   STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Nature [#2708H] Invasion of the Giant Pythons Florida's Everglades National Park is one of the last great wildlife refuges in the United States, home to numerous unique and endangered mammals, trees, plants, birds and turtles, as well as half a million alligators. However, the Everglades is also the dumping ground for many animal invaders over 15 species of parrot, 75 kinds of fish and 30 different reptiles from places as far away as Africa, Asia and the Caribbean. All of the intruders found their way into the park either by accidental escape from pet owners or intentional releases by people no longer wishing to care for an exotic species. Add to the mix tens of thousands of giant pythons, snakes that can grow to 20 feet and weigh nearly 300 pounds, some released into the wild by irresponsible pet owners, some escapees from almost 200 wildlife facilities destroyed by Hurricane Andrew in 1992. The predatory pythons slithered into this protected wilderness and thrived, and the refuge has consequently become less of a haven and more of a killing ground every day since then. duration 55:16   SRND51 TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
