Picture Segment Description
What's the Word on the Street: Subtraction
(First: Episode 4166)

Chris serves snacks to Big Bird, Elmo and Rosita, then welcomes the viewer to Sesame Street. Elmo asks for a banana, to which Chris replies "You just said the magic word!" -- which cues the grand entrance of Max the Magician (Will Arnett), who has some "real" magic tricks to display ...

For his first trick, Max produces two scarves, then another one, making them three scarves. Everyone is amazed and wants to know how he did the trick - except for Chris, who already knows. Max doubts that Chris knows his secrets, but Chris explains that the "trick" was done using something called "addition." He demonstrates it himself by adding one and two glasses of milk to make three.

Max has another trick up his sleeve: he displays five cards, then makes each of them disappear, one by one, by "discarding" them, until they become zero cards. Once again, Chris is able to explain the trick with something called "subtraction," using straws to demonstrate. Max: "Are you sure you're not a magician?"

Max has one more trick, which he needs a volunteer for: he displays a rope, which Big Bird holds one end of, and turns it into two pieces, by cutting it with a pair of scissors. To Max's great detriment, Big Bird figures out that the trick was done with something called "division," and tries it on one of his birdseed breadsticks.

Max has no more tricks up his sleeve, but he vows to return one day with some tricks that will really impress everyone. With a whirl of his cape, he poofs out of sight -- a trick which not even Chris can figure out!

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.
