SCENE
Elmo welcomes the viewer and observes an odd thing on his plate. Super Grover crashes onto the scene to help out in identifying it, but believes it's a rock and a french poodle. Suddenly, the Super Foods appear singing their theme song. Grover tries to tell them a superhero is already on the case, but the foods show the object is a kiwi and use their powers to slice it up. The cheese tells Elmo to try it, but he's never had one before. She sings "Try, Try Again" to encourage him to try the fruit. Elmo gives it a taste and enjoys it! Super Grover goes off to find someone else in need of his help.

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.

Notes

  • The street story is borrowed from Sesame Workshop's outreach program, Food for Thought: Eating Well on a Budget, albeit editing out a scene featuring Baby Bear and his family. As a result of the edit, most of the final number is re-filmed so that Baby Bear isn't included. However, a brief clip of the scene appears in the online trailer for the episode.
