COLD OPEN What’s the Word on the Street?: Disguise
(First: Episode 4173)
SCENE Chris reads Abby Cadabby “The Frog Prince”, which she anxiously waits for the ending of. Chris finishes the story and Abby loves it.
SCENE cont'd As Abby walks down the street, she finds herself amazed that a frog of all things could be an enchanted prince. While Oscar deals with a man with some trash behind her, Abby wonders if some on Sesame Street could be a prince. She sees and Oscar and gets the idea that he may be an enchanted prince!


SCENE cont’d In Abby’s imagination, she tells what she thinks is Oscar’s fairy tale origin. He once was a handsome, kind prince who received trashy treasures from his subjects, until one day, a Fairy Grouchmother witness this and was disgusted. With a wave of her wand, she turns him into a nasty Grouch.

SCENE cont’d Back in reality, Abby believes it’s her duty to kiss Oscar and make him a prince again. She tells Oscar she’s going to kiss him, but he thinks otherwise. She floats up to his trash can, but he shuts the lid and emerges again with a protective mask on. He then hangs a “No Kissing” sign on his trash can and announces (using a megaphone) that his trash can is now a no-kissing zone and that he’ll be staying in his trash can forever (ordering from “Szechwan Grouch” for food). Abby gets an idea how to reach him...

SCENE cont’d Abby poofs herself into Oscar’s trash can. Abby tries to find Oscar in the dark, but ends up smooching his pets. Fearing he may be next, he bounces on his trampoline and sky-rockets out of his trash can.


SCENE cont'd Oscar crashes in front of Hooper’s, where Chris is folding napkins. Oscar asks him for a disguise so Abby won’t recognize him and kiss him. Abby poofs herself to Hooper’s and sees green man who goes by the name of James Bond. She recognizes him as Oscar. Chris settles this by making Oscar let Abby kiss him because if nothing happens to him, Abby will see she’s wrong. Abby checks her breath and kisses Oscar and…


SCENE cont’d …he remains the same. Abby is disappointed and thinks it was more fun in the story. Chris tells her that the frog was a fairy tale frog and that most frogs are just regular frogs and they like it like that! Oscar expresses his desire to be a Grouch in a song, “I Don't Wanna Be a Prince”. Abby doesn’t mind, as she loves Oscar anyway and begins chasing him for a hug.

Muppets / Animation Abby's Flying Fairy School
Mrs. Sparklenose steers the school to their field trip location: Colonial Trolliamsberg. However, Blogg (being half-Troll) seems down about the trip. When they arrive, the Troll guard asks them a riddle so they can pass: "What has one line down and one line across and you need it to tickle and toss?" The guard also notices Blogg's wings, which he tries claiming are "armpit-coolers". Gonnigan and Abby ask Spot, who shows them the alphabet. They then realize the answer is the letter T.
Inside the town, Blogg makes more attempts to hide his wings by putting a backpack over them (causing everything inside to spill out) and a large sweater. Abby and Gonnigan meet a candlestick maker, who asks them to estimate how many ears full of wax it'll take to make one candle. Gonnigan's guess turns out to be right (6 ears worth). They then head to the center of town, where Garfunkel the Griffin is performing. However, Niblet's flash-photography causes Garfunkel to freak out and angrily fly to the sky and the only to get him down to whisper "Nap time" in his ear. Abby tries, but the person must be a troll. Mrs. Sparklenose explains to Blogg that sometimes "Differences make the difference", boosting his confidence and he flies up to put Garfunkel to sleep. Everyone in the town reveres him.
