Elmo and Abby's Birthday Fun! is a 2009 Sesame Street direct-to-video compilation.

In the 45-minute production, Elmo and Abby Cadabby learn about the different ways birthdays are celebrated by taking part in Dorothy's birthday party on Sesame Street and Little Red Riding Hood's birthday party in Fairytaleland. At her party, Elmo sees the different ways fairy tale characters celebrate birthdays, playing games like "Fetch a Pail of Water" and having birthday wishes instead of presents. However, Abby doesn't know how to send Elmo back to Sesame Street for Dorothy's birthday.

FRAME 3
Abby comments that birthdays are different on Sesame Street than in Fairy Tale Land. However, they notice some similarities, like games. Elmo shows her his “Pin the Tail on the Donkey” game, but Abby is shocked to find the donkey is tail-less and tries to zap one on, but poofs a snail on him. Elmo shows her how the game is properly played. He tells her about more games, some of which appeared at his friend Dany’s birthday party.

Elmo becomes more intrigued in Fairy Tale Birthdays and Abby offers to take him to Little Red Riding Hood’s birthday party. Elmo accepts the invite, so long as he’s back in time for Dorothy’s party. They make up a rhyming spell and poof away.

They re-appear at Little Red’s birthday part in the park. Abby introduces him to Little Red (who calls him Grandma), Jack (from all the stories involving someone named Jack) and Hansel and Gretel. She also makes them flower hats. Elmo learns that instead of presents, they all get a birthday wish.

The next game is “Pull Out the Plumb”, where they stick their hands in a giant pie to find a plumb. Everyone finds odd things (including a tennis ball and a monster), until Hansel, Gretel and Abby wish that Little Red would find the plumb. She pulls it out and on her thumb even (“What a good girl am I!”). She then declares it’s time to dance, gracefully around the maypole. Jack finds it daunting and opts for a different dance. Elmo claims to know some good birthday dances.

FRAME 6
The group now devours the cake and sings a birthday song to Little Red. Abby notes Elmo still has his wish and he wishes for a stuffed blue octopus. Elmo decides to leave and asks Abby to poof him home, but she sends his toy instead and can’t send him away. He asks Little Red, who still has her wish, to send him home, but she thinks wishing for a toy is a better idea (“It’s trendy!”) She’s joking, of course, and explains that their wishes are meant to be self-less and wishes him home. Elmo octopus toy re-appears, which Elmo gives to Little Red as a present.
