Air date January 17, 2010
Season 37


Picture Segment Description
Cold Open Wolle is about to start Sesamstrasse, but as he hits the yellow button, all the lights and monitors in the control room go out. He concludes that it was the wrong button, pushes the red button instead, and everything starts up again. He then declares that it was just as he thought: the correct button was the red one.
Scene As Wolle and Pferd stroll down Sesamstrasse, the ground starts to shake. It turns out that it's caused by Samson jumping due to his hiccups. Samson doesn't know what to do to get rid of it, so Wolle suggests that he shake his head, but that doesn't help. Wolle then suggests that Samson wish it away.
Scene Samson repeats "dear hiccups I wish you go away", Wolle and Pferd certain that it's gonna work, but it turns out that it did not.
Scene Wolle and Pferd get a new idea: if Samson jumps around the hiccups will surely go away. Samson starts to sing about having hiccups while making a few jumps. It turns out that the song and jumping helped, but shortly after the hiccups returns. Pferd concludes that hiccups are very horrible, which gives Wolle an idea: they should try to scare the hiccups away.
Scene Wolle and Pferd decide to sneak up on the hiccups so they can scare it. Wolle goes over to Samson like nothing will happen and then starts to jump around to scare the hiccups, Pferd following shortly after. After they finished Samson asks them if they were dancing. Wolle says that they tried to scare him, and Samson laughs and says he thought they looked so funny. Then Samson notice that the hiccups are gone and he thanks them for helping. Then Wolle gets the hiccups, and just as Pferd and Samson have given up on the hiccups Wolle bursts out in laughs and says "Ich hab dich hereingelegt (I fooled you)".
