Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN
What's the Word on the Street?: Murray Monster introduces the word squid.


SCENE
Elmo and Alan are reading in Hooper's Store, when they both hear a boat, then see it (includes a rare appearance of Sesame Street) and the storefront is boarded by a group of Bookaneers. An Anything Muppet and a salty dog are led by their pirate captain, played by guest star Tina Fey. They demand that Elmo hand over his book, but Elmo explains that he loves to read. The pirates invite Elmo to become a Bookaneer, but he must first pass a series of tests.
Their theme song can be viewed at Sesamestreet.org. (SSvideo)

SCENE, cont'd
After pointing out three words that start with F while dancing a jig, and saying the alphabet with a squid, the Bookaneers set Elmo on a quest with a treasure map.
The part with the alphabet can be viewed at Sesamestreet.org. (SSvideo)

SCENE, cont'd
Alan, Elmo, and the Bookaneers use the map to make them locate themselves at the Fix-It Shop. The map says to count eight more steps until seeing the surprise. After counting eight paces, the pirates find themselves at the library. Their treasure is the pages and pages found in the books that fill the library shelves.
