Picture Segment Description
Healthy Moment: Telly dresses himself in an astronaut's helmet, and comments that he's running low on energy. Buzz Aldrin suggests that all he needs to do is eat some food.

Gordon welcomes the viewer to Sesame Street. Cookie Monster approaches Gordon and shows him a picture that he drew of a cookie. However, this picture isn't just any cookie: It's a drawing of the Moon, which Cookie Monster believes to be a giant cookie in the sky!

STORY, cont'd
Cookie Monster tries to get to the Moon by jumping, and standing on a ladder. Gordon tells him it isn't possible to get to the Moon that way. He also gently explains that the Moon isn't a cookie. Cookie Monster then recalls that Slimey has traveled to the Moon and goes to ask him some questions.
STORY, cont'd
Cookie Monster asks Slimey if the Moon is a cookie. Slimey doesn't know, however, because he didn't taste it when he was there.

STORY, cont'd
Upon Cookie's request, Slimey calls WASA on his cell phone, noting that his friend wants to go to the Moon. A rocket and portable launchpad from WASA immediately shows up, but Cookie Monster is too big to get on!
STORY, cont'd
Cookie Monster, Gabi, and several children congregate in the arbor, and Gordon approaches them with astronaut Buzz Aldrin, who was the second person to set foot on the Moon.

STORY, cont'd
Buzz Aldrin introduces himself and tells the group about his Moon trip. Cookie Monster asks him if the Moon is a cookie. Aldrin says that it isn't, but notes that even so, the Moon is an exciting place. One can see the stars and the Earth, and take large hops due to the weaker gravity.

STORY, cont'd

Cookie Monster thanks Aldrin for his "hard-earned knowledge," and sings "If Moon Was Cookie".

STORY, cont'd
Afterwards, it strikes Cookie Monster that even though the Moon isn't a cookie, the stars might be. He walks back to Aldrin, and asks him if he's landed on stars or other planets. Aldrin's response is again negative, but he encourages Cookie Monster to become an astronaut himself.
