"What's the Word on the Street?" -- ballet
SCENE
Abby and Zoe are playing in the courtyard. They love dancing so much, so Zoe lets Abby try on her tutu. To return the favor, Abby lets Zoe try out her wand. As she's figuring it out, she inadvertently wishes that everyone would wear a tutu and dance ballet.
SCENE, cont'd
Suddenly, a penguin wearing a tutu crosses their path, followed by a mail carrier. In the Fix It Shop, Maria and Luis have promised to fix a giant 8-toast toaster just when they appear to be wearing tutus and begin dancing. Similar scenarios play out for Gina and Horatio, Chris and Big Bird, Oscar and Slimey, a Honker and Dinger, Grover and Mr. Johnson, and Telly Monster.
SCENE, cont'd
Abby and Zoe think it's great, but they soon realize that their spell has caused an inconvenience on Sesame Street. Unsure of how to reverse the effects, they eventually figure that Abby's mommy would come up with a rhyme to undo the spell. After a short exchange, everyone turns back to normal, but they all seem to have enjoyed it enough to dance ballet again some other time. Once Abby and Zoe are convinced that the spell is undone, until a pig happens by in a tutu. Zoe and Abby think something has again gone wrong, but the pig assures them that he just loves to dance ballet, and the tutu was given to him by his Aunt Isidore, star of Swine Lake.
