Sesame Workshop description
Mother Goose, played by Samantha Bee, is visiting Sesame Street. She needs to write three new nursery rhymes by the end of the day, but she fears she has become a rusty rhymer. Elmo and Abby say they are great rhymers and offer to help. Mother Goose explains that to write really good nursery rhymes, you need conflict – when someone wants something or needs something very badly. Just then Alan comes out with 13 fresh cookies and Cookie Monster is having a hard time resisting them. Mother Goose starts writing and gets stuck rhyming “plate,” but Abby comes to the rescue with the word “eight.” Mother Goose continues with her rhyme, as Cookie Monster gobbles up the cookies, but this time she can’t figure out a rhyme for “done.” Once again, Abby calls out a rhyming word – "none!" Together, they come up with the rhyming words Mother Goose needs.
