Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN Cookie Monster is happy to have a cookie, but is sad when it's gone. He gets happy when he finds another one.

SCENE Today, Telly, Baby Bear and Rosita are playing school, with Telly as the teacher. Gordon helps them set up before heading off. Teacher Telly begins his lesson on the letter T, which the two correctly make the sound of, earning them a gold star.

SCENE cont'd Now, Telly asks one his pupils to draw a T on the board. Rosita volunteers and excitedly pushes Baby Bear out of the way to get to the board. She help Baby Bear up afterward, not knowing what got into her. Telly sadly takes away her gold star, before bringing the Safety Chickens to give them a lesson - "Give a Peck for Safety and Respect."

SCENE cont'd Now, the students must identify some T words. Baby Bear draws a tooth on the board. Rosita approaches the board, but struggles to come up with a word. Baby Bear tries to give her one, but when she gets fed up with his suggestions, she pushes him down again.


SCENE cont'd Baby Bear is done with being pushed and quits the game. Rosita can't help herself and needs a way to prevent herself from pushing Baby Bear. Since Telly's not a real teacher, they call Gordon over to help. He has a musical suggestion: whenever she feels like pushing someone, she should "Hug Yourself." Baby Bear pads himself for the remainder of the game and Rosita finds the hugging advice works. She gives Baby Bear a hug of his own, as they all (including Gordon) start counting triangles.

Muppets Elmo and the gang introduce the letter of the day, E, with a song and dance.
