Picture Segment Description
Cold opening Wolle is eating spaghetti when the boss asks him to start Sesamstrasse. Wolle replies that he doesn't have time for it now, but the boss mentions that theres's 7 seconds until the show starts. Wolle quickly clears the control panel and pushes the red button.

Scene Helen is showing Wolle, Pferd and Samson photos from her and Nils' vacation in Egypt. They are impressed by the picture of her and Nils at one of the three great pyramids and they start to wonder how the pyramids were built.

Samses the builder is going to build a new pyramid for Pharaoh Wollnaton and queen NoPferdtete. Wollnaton asks Sames if he is ready to build the pyramid, Samses says that he has all the materials they need.

Scene There's a slight problem: Samses the builder doesn't know how to build a pyramid. Luckily, Princess Helenefer has the building plans, which she hands to Wollnaton so he can oversee the construction.
Scene The pyramid construction is well underway when Princess Helenefer suggests that they build it as high as they can. But Wollnaton is not happy with the construction; it looks more like a tower than a pyramid. Wollnaton tells them that a pyramid is not only high, but also wide. NoPferdtete is getting very hungry and starts to eat the construction scaffolding, which causes the tower to collapse. Wollnaton orders another attempt.
Scene Wollnaton is not happy with the new construction either. It's wide and high, but it's missing the top. He decides to build it himself.

Scene All of them are singing a song about the pyramid that they are building.

Back on Sesamstrasse, they conclude that building a pyramid was no easy task.
