SCENE
Elmo and Abby help Chris and Alan sort their shipment of food, when a rocker (Michael McKean) appears. He has forgotten his name, but knows it starts with the sound of the letter V. He recalls his name is Virgil Von Vivadli and has come to Sesame Street to start a band, but also forgot what the band consists of. Chris guess penguins, but Virgil scoffs at the idea, upsetting a group of penguins in rock-n'-roll gear. It then hits him that he wants his rock band made out of rocks. Elmo tells there are no rocks on the street, but Virgil shows him (through song) that rocks are everywhere, backed-up by two Anything Muppet rockers, who appear every time "rock" is said. Elmo and Abby go look for rocks.

SCENE cont'd
Abby returns with a small rock. Virgil observes it and deduces it's a pebble because of its small size, but it's not big enough to be the lead singer. Instead, he makes it the tambourine player. Elmo brings a large rock, which is too big to be the lead singer, but Virgil lets the rock play the gong.

SCENE cont'd
Zoe has heard about Virgil's rock quest and brings Rocco to be in the band. Virgil tells her Rocco is a type of rock called "basalt", because of the many holes it has (which means it came from a volcano). Rocco's not lead singer material, but gets to play bass instead.

SCENE cont'd
The three run off and come back with three different rocks. Elmo's is a limestone, which is too much of a fossil to sing lead and instead gets the lute. Zoe shows him an obsidian rock, which gets to play the oboe. Abby hands him some marble rock, which gets to play the mandolin.

SCENE cont'd
Virgil doesn't think he'll find a lead singer and decides to "make like a rock and roll", when Abby gets an idea to make a rock appear with magic. While she waves her wand, Chris appears behind her and is turned into a large rock (and develops a Chris Rock-like voice). Virgil and the rest observe he is a gem and a perfect lead singer! Chris wants to be changed back so he can go back to work. After he returns to normal, Virgil asks Abby to make him into a gem, so he himself can lead his rock band. Once he is turned into a gem, they all rock out.

Abby's Flying Fairy School
Abby and Gonnigan work on their magic macaroni art. Blogg uses magic to create a life-size Macaroni dinosaur. With a touch of "The Spice of Life", he brings his creation to life. However, it begins wreaking havoc all over the class room, wrecking everything. They try various methods of stopping it, including making a Macaroni stop sign, but to no avail. Mrs. Sparklenose suggests they "Spot the solution." They call on Spot, who shows them things that are humongous. They get the idea they need something big to stop him. A large wall doesn't work for them, however. Blogg comes up with a giant meatball, which the Macaronisaurus begins playing with. Everyone cheers, while the giant meatball pins Blogg to the floor.

Bert and Ernie's Great Adventures
Cavemen Bert and Ernie struggle to get a round rock up a hill to make a house for their pet dinosaur, Spot. When it rolls down the hill, it knocks over some bones, which means they've invented bowling! Bert takes a turn and the rock lands on Spot's head, piercing a hole in the rock. Suddenly, a Ticklesaurus appears and the two try to make a break for it. They end up rolling onto of the rock, and chase the Ticklesaurus away. A stick is put through the hole in the rock, which makes it a wheel! Next, they use the wheel and Spot as a wheelbarrow to lif the rocks up the hill. They finally make a home for Spot, which rolls down the hill (making it a mobile home).
