Picture Segment Description
What’s the Word on the Street?: Robot
(First: Episode 4185)


Chris welcomes the viewer and counts the pies that were just delivered (counting 17 pies total). Elmo, Telly and Rosita rush to him and ask him to read a book to them. Chris begins the book, which is about a helpful robot named Rico who loves to help en la manana (the morning), en la tarde (the afternoon) and en la noche (the night). After the story, Chris goes back to work and remarks a robot like that would be of good use to him, which sparks an idea in the monster’s heads.
SCENE cont’d
Chris starts stacking the pies away when he is startled by Telly wearing a robot costume, causing Chris to drop the pie boxes. However, he claims he’s not Telly, but one of the Help-o-Bots. He introduces the rest of the crew. They show the things they can do, such as going forward and backward and rotating. They can also pick things up and demonstrate by picking up the boxes Chris dropped. Chris accepts their help.


SCENE cont’d
The Help-O-Bots begin helping stack the pies, but they start going faster , resulting in a big mess (and a pie on Chris’ head). The Help-O-Bots offer their help to clean the store with their “built-in” cleaning equipment. They start cleaning, but end up making the mess worse (and sending another pie Chris’ way). Chris asks that they stop helping him clean and go help someone else using their talents. They all claim they’re good at saying the alphabet, but find it unlikely someone would need help with it…
SCENE cont’d
…until a man rushes into the store, looking for someone to help him find the letter after G. The Help-O-Bots can’t help him, but the Alpha-Beta Bots can! They say the alphabet for the man who thanks them and goes off on his way. The Alpha-Beta Bots cheer for their success and go off to find more people with alphabet-related trouble.
SCENE cont’d
Just then, Rico, the robot from the book, enters Hooper’s, not to help Chris, but for lunch. He orders a motor oil smoothie and a 9-volt on rye. (“And charge it please!”)

Abby's Flying Fairy School
Mrs. Sparklenose is teaching the students opposites today, though Blögg doesn't grasp the concept as easy. After Gonnigan and Abby demonstrate, he tries to use their opposite spell on Gonnigan, but uses it on himself instead. Suddenly, Blögg becomes the opposite of himself, wearing posh clothing and being obsessed with cleanliness (constantly giving Niblet a bath). Gonnigan likes having a less-disgusting friend around now, but Opposite-Blögg ruins their playtime by putting away their blocks and refusing to wear the wrinkled costumes. Abby and Gonnigan learn that to change him back, Blögg has to do the spell on himself. Abby tempts him with his favorite stinky cheese, but he instead is frightened by it. Everyone muses about the old Blögg, making him realize the right thing to do is to change himself back.

Grover tries to comfort the cactus, but pricks himself on its stems. The cactus realizes he put the hole in it. Grover helps more by find a ball he can play with. He fetches a bowling ball, which is too heavy. He gets a snowball from Antarctica, but it falls apart when thrown. Grover pulls a hero sandwich from his utility sock, when the cactus notices the foil wrapping can be made into different shapes.
