| ||What's the Word on the Street?: Speedy|
| ||Chris serves his Uncle Gordon a sandwich, when a small race car zooms by on the counter multiple times, making it hard for him to put his plate down. Oscar points out to them that Slimey is practicing for the Squirmadega Car Race today. Elmo rushes in, decked out in Slimey gear, excited for the race and counting on Slimey to win. Chris sets him up by the front window to watch the race.|
| ||In the arbor, announcer Jeff Gordon welcomes us to the race and announces the competitors. Among the worms are Dale Wormhart Jr. (in car #1), Kyle Squish in car #2, Juan Mudtoya in car #3, Shawna Wiggleson in car #4 and finally Slimey in car #5.|
| ||Before the race begins, Carrie Underworm sings the “Worm Anthem”. Jeff then shows what the race course will be: the worm racers will go over the laundry basket, under the table, around the fire hydrant and through Big Bird’s legs.|
| ||As the race begins, the worms go over the laundry basket. Soon, car #1 falls into the basket and is taken out of the race. The worms then drive under the table, where car #2 gets a flat tire. As they drive around the fire hydrant, car #3 loses control and can’t stop going around. As the race comes to a close, Slimey misses Big Bird’s legs and drives into his toes instead (Which tickles Big Bird), and Shawna wins. Elmo is disheartened about Slimey’s loss.|
| || Back inside Hooper's Store, Elmo mopes. However, he and Gordon notice that Slimey is still driving his car around the counter. Oscar tells them that Slimey’s not upset about losing - he did his personal worm best and, with practice, may win the next race.|

| || Abby's Flying Fairy School|
Today, the students are growing their own plants. Abby, Blogg and Peck grow their own flowers, but Gonnigan has no luck, even when trying to shove Puck in his pot. His friends convince him to use magic to make it grow. He uses his "Gigantic Spell" and turns the plant into a large beanstalk that stretches to the sky, with Peck hanging on. Mrs. Sparklenose has them poof to the top to retrieve her. Once at the top, they discover a giant using Peck a tiny feather duster. They try to communicate, but they are not heard. They call Spot, who shows them images of ears. Abby makes Gonnigan perform his spell again, so they can be giants and talk to him. They grow to be as big as the giant and swap Peck for a large feather duster. Once back down in the classroom, they find Niblet has grown large by eating parts of the beanstalk.
