Sesame Street Saves Christmas is an 18-minute live street show that debuted at the Universal Studios Singapore theme park in December 2013. The show is performed during the Christmas season in front of the New York Public Library in the park's New York City district. The show is performed in English. In 2014, the park produced an indoor stage version of the show.
It's Christmas Eve, and the Sesame friends are getting ready for a celebration. Big Bird leads his friends in the song "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas", as Oscar the Grouch moans and begs them to stop singing. Elmo, Ernie, Bert and Cookie Monster join in for a raucous "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree".
Excited, Abby wants to meet Santa right away. Her friends tell her that Santa won't come until tonight, but she's determined. She waves her wand to take them all to the North Pole, but the spell goes awry -- and brings three surprised elves to Sesame Street. To introduce themselves, the trio sing "We Are Santa's Elves".
The elves need to find a replacement for Rudolph, who's come down with a cold. Abby doesn't recognize the name, so the group sings "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" to help catch her up on current events.
Santa Claus and his sleigh have also been summoned to Sesame Street, and Santa tells the group that he has to cancel Christmas. The weather report is calling for blizzard conditions, and he can't fly without Rudolph. Oscar is delighted, and joins Santa and the elves in a rap number about being grounded on Christmas.
Everyone is heartbroken to hear the news, so they call in a superhero -- Super Grover! He's got a shiny red nose in his "utility sock", so if they can find someone who flies, they could replace Rudolph and save Christmas. Grover nominates Big Bird, but Big Bird reminds Super Grover that he can fly.
Super Grover puts the red nose on, and Elmo leads the cast singing "All I Want for Christmas Is You" to Santa. They light the huge Christmas tree on stage, and now all they need is snow. Abby casts another spell, and she actually gets it right this time -- it starts snowing! The cast sings a medley: "Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow", "Winter Wonderland" and "We Wish You A Merry Christmas".
Super Grover leads Santa's sleigh down the snowy street to close the show.
