|Air date||April 22, 2003|
|Season||Season 34 (2003)|
Gordon is going to an exciting baseball game, and is bringing his pal Elmo along. Before they go, Elmo is desperately seeking a fish-sitter to fish-sit Dorothy while he's gone. Baby Bear and Telly Monster both want the position, and end up competing with each other to prove to Dorothy who the better fish-sitter is. After a series of wacky stunts to entertain Dorothy, it's decided that the best fish-sitter is Elmo, because apparently Dorothy isn't ready to be away from Elmo just yet. Gordon offers to bring Dorothy to the game too, along with Baby Bear and Telly -- who rush home to get their pets to bring to the game.
