Ruthie welcomes the viewer to Sesame Street, and reveals that her friend, the Emperor, is paying a visit to show off his new clothes. Elmo laughs, since he is familiar with the story the Emperor comes from. He and Ruthie giggle as the Emperor makes a grand entrance wearing (just like Elmo predicted) only his boxer shorts and his crown.
