(Elmo and Rosita chattering) – Dorothy.
– No. – Excuse me.
(group chattering) Hello?
(group chattering) Excuse me, hello?
(group chattering) Everybody?
(group chattering) (whistles) Hey! Calm down, everybody. What is the wee little problem here? – Well, Chuckie Sue
– No. – is the best pet
– No. – in the whole wide world.
– No. – Dorothy is the best pet.
(group chattering at once) (Baby Bear whistles) In the whole wide world. – One at a time, please. – Well, Elmo thinks
Dorothy is the best pet in the whole wide world. – Chuckie Sue. – Rocko. – Ah-ha, so let me get this straight here. Everybody assembled here,
– Yeah. – each thinks that they have the best pet in the whole wide world. – [Group] Yes! – I got it.
– Good. – But have no fear, because I
am the bear with the answer. – You know who has the best pet? – You see, Elmo,
sometimes you need someone outside the wee little
problem to help solve it, and that someone is me. – Oh.
– Yeah. Okay, let me take a look here. Uh-huh. Mm-hm, interesting, interesting. Okay, upon careful observation, it is very clear to me
who has the best pet. – [Group] Who? – I’ll be right back. Meet Ralphie, my parrot, the best pet in the
whole wide world, yeah. Problem solved! (upbeat music) ♪ He’s the best pet, the best pet yet ♪ ♪ There’s no better that
you can get than my pet ♪ ♪ You bet he’s the best,
best, bestest pet ♪ ♪ In the whole wide world ♪ – Why is a parrot better than a hamster? – Or a goldfish? – Or a rock? – (laughs) Let me count
the ways, my friends. Ralphie can make animal sounds. – So? Dorothy can make fish sounds
if you listen closely. – Uh-huh, but Ralphie can make
the sounds of other animals. Ralphie, hey Ralphie, make the cow sound. – Cock a doodle doo. – Wait a minute, that’s not a cow. – That’s a rooster. – Even Chuckie Sue knows that. – Okay, okay, okay, okay. Hey Ralphie, how ’bout
a horsey sound, yeah? – Baa. – What’s that, Dorothy? Dorothy says that’s a sheep. – I know it’s a sheep, Elmo. Okay, Ralphie, Ralphie,
how ’bout try a duck, yeah? – Neigh. (blows raspberry) – That’s a horse! – Yeah.
– Hey. I don’t hear any of your pets mooing or cock a doodle dooing, huh? Oh, and by the way, I don’t
believe your pets can talk, huh? But mine can. Say hello, Ralphie. – Hello Ralphie. – Ha ha, see, what’d I tell ya, huh? The best pet in the whole wide world. Yeah.
– Best pet. (Baby Bear laughs) – Rocko talks all the time. – I don’t hear him. – You’re not listening. – It’s a rock! – Chuckie Sue’s had baby hamsters. Try and beat that. (laughs) – Well, Rocko has a
whole family of pebbles. – Ralphie’s the prettiest. – Says who? – Says me. – Best pet.
– No, wait, wait, wait. – No you’re not.
– No, no, no, no. – Dorothy is.
– Take a look. – Rocko.
– Take a look. (group chattering all at once) – Hold it, hold it, hold it, hold it. – It’s a rock! – So what? – Calm down. Now what’s going on here? – Maria, I’ll tell you what it is. You see, I happen to have the best pet in the whole wide world, Ralphie. – I do, I do!
– Yes, Dorothy’s the best. – Chuckie Sue. (group chattering all at once) – Wait, wait, wait, hold
it, hold it, hold it. There’s an answer to this problem. – If Maria’s gonna bring in
another pet it won’t help. – No, no, no, no, no, but you know, even if I
did, it still doesn’t mean that your pet isn’t the best, too. – Whoa, whoa, whoa, what
are you saying, Maria? How can there be more than one best pet in the whole wide world? – Because you each have
the best pet for you. For Elmo, it’s Dorothy. – [Elmo] Oh yeah. – [Maria] For Telly, it’s Chuckie Sue. – And for me it’s Rocko. – But it’s a rock! – So what? – It’s the best pet for Zoe. – So, what you’re saying here, Maria… – Is… – We all have the best pet. – Exactly! See? Problem solved. – Hey.
– Yeah. – Hey listen, our pets are talking. – Yeah, they’re saying hello. – Hello. – Oh, (laughs) Dorothy says
they’re all becoming friends. – Gee, if we’re friends and
all our pets are friends, maybe we should set up a pet play date. – Oh, that’s an awesome idea, Telly.
– Oh yeah, yeah. – What day should we do it? – Tuesday. (Elmo laughs) – Tuesday works for Chuckie Sue. – [Baby Bear] All right. – [Rosita] Rocko says he
has to move something, but it should be okay. – [Elmo] Tuesday it is! – You know, these are
some pretty smart pets. – Are you kidding, Maria? (laughs) Uh, (clears throat) music? (upbeat music)

cat because I love him, I hug him, and I kiss him. – I have a toy cat because
I’m allergic to cats. – I talk to my fish. (laughs) It’s very funny. I talk to my fish and I also feed my fish. – He’s lots and lots of fun.

with yellow feathers? (horse neighs) Or a horse. (rooster crows) Or a rooster. Gee, I wonder which one
it is, Rubber Duckie. (Rubber Duckie squeaks) Are you a cow, horse, or a rooster with yellow feathers, huh? – Neither. I’m a duck doing animal impressions. – Oh. (laughs) – Quack. That’s a duck. – Ooh, very good. Wow, what an act. (Rubber Duckie squeaks) Well, I know it’s tough, Rubber Duckie, but don’t lose hope. (dramatic music) – Big Bird is tall in something small. (objects clatter) No, no, I’m okay. (dramatic music) – A flying clown clue. He’s tall in something small. (car horn honking) Hey, could that be Big Bird? (car horn honking) No, it’s just a giraffe.

up and look in the car? – Did you hear that? That sounded like Big Bird. – [Big Bird] It’s really small in here. – Hmm, gee, do you think
Big Bird could be in there? (Rubber Duckie squeaks) Yeah, I know, but it’s so teeny tiny and he’s the biggest bird we know. I mean, he’s so big, so

– Hm? – This may seem like
a ridiculous question, but what are you doing? – Oh, I’m teaching Bernice
here how to play checkers. Your move, Bernice. Bernice, your move. – You’re teaching a
pigeon to play checkers? – Mm-hm, yeah. – That’s amazing. That’s the most incredible
thing I’ve ever heard of. – Oh Ernie, it’s no big deal. – No big deal?
– Mm-mm. – Why, a pigeon that can play checkers, that must be the smartest
pigeon in the whole world. – Well she’s really not that smart, Ernie. – Not that smart, Bert,
how can you say that? – Well, in the 10 games we’ve played she’s only beaten me twice. (playful music) Okay, Bernice, go ahead, your move. (playful music) (Grover grunting) – Oh, hello there. It is I, your cute, furry, and exhausted world-traveling monster. I have just returned from
another one of my trips to a far away place. This time I went to a
country called Jordan. See this beautiful (grunting),
albeit bulky, basket? My friend Amira and her
cousin Mahmoud live in Jordan. They make these baskets
and they showed me how. Roll film, and hurry! (cries out) (bright rhythmic music) This was the day that Amira
and Mahmoud’s grandmother was going to teach them
how to make baskets. (speaking in foreign language) And do you know what
they make baskets from? (speaking in foreign language) Believe it or not, the baskets are made from old dried up banana leaves. Yes, I kid you not. You see the bananas hanging on the tree? Well, the bananas are to eat, but the leaves on the
banana tree are not to eat. The leaves dry up and the
people cut them off the tree. All the women in their
village get together and make baskets that they
will sell in the marketplace. First, they make the leaves into braids, and then the braids are
woven together into a basket. (upbeat music) Grandma showed Amira and
Mahmoud how to do it. Amira was so proud. She thanked her grandma for teaching her. And see this? This was Amira and
Mahmoud’s very first basket made all by themselves. They gave it to me to show to you, and (grunts) while we
were making the basket, I helped a little bit,
we ate a lot of bananas. I did not want to make a mess, so I put all the banana
peels into this basket. Here, I will show you. That is a lot to banana peels, is it not? Now I know you think I’m
going to do the cheap trick and slip on a banana peel. Well, ah, ha, ha, comedy 101 is to laugh. No, no, no, this is a very serious talk on how to make, whoa! They are very slippery, ooh! Steady, steady. There. Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa,
whoa, whoa! (whimpers) This just goes to prove you should never put all your banana peels into one basket. Whoa!

thinking about bath time, too. And Dorothy has a question. What is it? Okay, Dorothy. Here we go. What do you need to take a bath? Oh, good question, Dorothy. Let’s ask Mr. Noodle. Mr. Noodle! Mr. Noodle, oh, oh, oh. (Elmo thuds)
Ow, ow. (whimpering) Ow. Elmo has a booboo. Oh. Huh? Oh, okay. (Mr. Noodle smacks a kiss) Aw, thank you, Mr. Noodle. Elmo’s booboo feels so
much better. (chuckles) Oh, Mr. Noodle, Dorothy has a question. What do you need to take a bath? – [Child] What do you need to take a bath? (playful music)
(Elmo laughs) – [Child] A bathtub. – [Child] Right, Mr. Noodle. You take a bath in the tub. – [Elmo] Ooh, and it’s full of water. – [Child] Make sure it’s not too hot. – [Elmo] Oh cool, the bathtub
is all ready for a bath. So, what do you need to
take a bath, Mr. Noodle? (playful music) – [Child] You need to go get a washcloth. (children laughing) – [Child] No, those are skis. – [Elmo] Oh boy, Mr. Noodle. – [Child] No, Mr. Noodle, you
can’t take a bath like that. – [Elmo] Mr. Noodle, stop. – [Children] No, no,
they’re not gonna fit. – [Elmo] Mr. Noodle. – [Child] That’s for skiing. – [Children] Skis are for the snow. – [Child] You don’t use them in the bath. – [Elmo] You need skis to ski. What do you need to
take a bath, Mr. Noodle? – [Children] Try again, Mr. Noodle. – [Child] What’s that? – [Child] I think they’re for swimming. – [Child] Yeah, like in the ocean. – [Child] Or a pool. – [Elmo] No, look, look. No, no, no, Mr. Noodle! – [Child] You don’t use
them when you take a bath. – [Child] You take a bath
to get washed and clean. – [Elmo] (laughs) It’s
okay, Mr. Noodle. (laughs) – [Children] That’s it! – [Child] Good job, Mr. Noodle. – [Elmo] You need soap
to get nice and clean. – [Children] He has a towel. – [Elmo] To dry yourself off. Oh, and what’s that, Mr. Noodle? What is that? – [Child] It’s a bath brush. – [Child] So he can scrub his back. – [Child] That’s good. – [Elmo] That’s what
you need to take a bath. Yay, Mr.–
(water splashes) What are you doing, Mr. Noodle? (suspenseful music) – [Child] Why is he putting on that hat? – [Child] So his hair won’t get wet. – [Elmo] Mr. Noodle. No, your clothes, Mr. Noodle. – [Children] Mr. Noodle, you
need to take your clothes off! – [Elmo] Not with all your clothes on! – [Child] He’s all wet. – [Elmo] (laughs) Mr. Noodle, you have all your clothes on still. – [Child] You have to take your
clothes off to take a bath. – [Elmo] Yeah. Oh, Mr. Noodle. (laughs) – [Child] Silly, Noodle. Oh, he’s all wet. – Boy, Mr. Noodle gave his
clothes a bath. (laughs) What’s that, Dorothy? Oh, Dorothy wants to ask someone else. What do you need to take a bath? (bright music) – Dorothy, this is how I take a bath, with soap, a washcloth, and water. (bright music) – Dorothy, I like to
take shower to get clean, and to use a nice dry towel to
dry myself when I’m finished. (bright music) – Oh thanks, everybody. Ooh, and thanks, Dorothy. Now, Elmo will ask a baby. ♪ Da do do do ♪ Oh hello, baby. Oh, you’re all wet. (laughs) Oh, hi, Mommy. – Hi. – Oh baby, baby, what do
you need to take a bath? Oh yeah, water, oh and
soap, and towel, and Mommy. (laughs) Oh thank you, baby. (laughs) Bye-bye. Bye, Mommy.
– Bye. (baby coos) (bright music) – And now, Elmo has a question ♪ For you ♪ Yeah, you! How many bubbles are in this whale’s bath? Let’s count them and see. (upbeat music) – [Children] One. Two, three, four. (Elmo laughs) Five, six, seven, eight. – Whoa. (chuckles) – [Children] Nine, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18! – 18 bubbles, whoa! And one really big bubble. That makes 19, 19 bubbles, yay! (laughs) (whale chirping) Sorry to burst your
bubble, whale. (laughs) Oh, great counting everybody. And now–
– Elmo has mail. – Oh.
– Elmo has mail. – Elmo has email, yay!
– Elmo has mail. – Computer!
– Elmo has mail. Elmo has mail.
– Computer, Elmo wants email. – [Computer] Elmo has mail. Elmo has mail.
– Computer! Stop!
– Elmo has mail. – Oh, Mouse.
– Elmo has mail. – Good. (bright electronic music) Oh, look, Elmo’s got
email from his friends Telly Monster and Little
Murray Sparkles. (laughs) – Hi, Elmo. Just take a look at Little
Murray Sparkles here. It’s his bath time, see? (Little Murray Sparkles meows) (Little Murray Sparkles slurping) (laughs) He’s givin’ himself a bath. Isn’t that somethin’? Look at that, that’s
the way cats get clean. They lick themselves all over. Oh look at that, look at that! (laughs) He’s washin’ his face now. (Little Murray Sparkles slurping) Gee, Little Murray Sparkles, you must have the cleanest
face in the whole world. And the cutest face, too. (Little Murray Sparkles slurps) (laughs) Hey, hey, wait,
wait, what are you doin’? I already had my bath today. (Little Murray Sparkles meows) (laughs) That’s a rough
tongue you’ve got there. (Telly laughing) Bye, Elmo. Oh that tickles, that tickles. Oh stop. (chuckles) Silly kitty. (bright electronic music) – Oh, thanks, Computer. Boy, even kitties take baths. Hm, that makes Elmo wonder. What else takes a bath? Let’s find out. Oh, Drawer. (water sloshing)
(Elmo laughs) Elmo hears splashing. Is somebody takin’ a bath in Drawer? No, Elmo doesn’t see anything! (bright music) Do birds get baths? – [Children] Yes! – [Child] But not in a bathtub. – [Child] In a birdbath. – [Elmo] Ah. Oh, do doggies take baths? – [Children] Yes. – [Child] But they need help. – [Elmo] Oh. Do cars take baths? – [Child] Not in a bathtub. (horn honks) Yeah, in a carwash. (Elmo laughs) – [Elmo] Do worms take baths? – [Children] No! – [Elmo] Unless it’s Slimey. – He takes mud baths. (laughs) (Slimey chattering) – (laughs) Oh, thanks, Drawer. Elmo’s friend Juliana
loves giving her horsey, Sarah, a bath and she
told Elmo all about it. Oh, you wanna watch too, Drawer? Okay. (laughs) (bright music) – [Juliana] My horse, Sarah, gets dirty and needs to be washed, so my mom taught me
how to give her a bath. First, we rinse her legs with warm water so she could get used to it. We slowly move the hose up to her neck and get her whole body
wet, but not the face. Then my mom showed me how to wash her with shampoo and a sponge. We washed her neck, her back, underneath her, and we were careful with her legs, and we washed her mane, too. It’s kind of like washing your hair. Then came the tail. After that, we rinsed her all over with some more warm water. We washed the face last. We have to be very gentle. We used warm water and
a special face sponge, but no shampoo. It was time to dry her, so we scraped the water off with a scraper. Then we used a towel to
dry her off some more. (Sarah whinnies) But she was still a little wet so we walked her around for awhile and let the sun dry her
the rest of the way. Sarah was very shiny. I love my horse, but sometimes
she rolls in the dirt. Oh no. We’ll have to start all over again. (bright music) – Boy, Juliana’s horse, Sarah, must really love taking baths. (laughs) Ooh, but now Elmo wants to learn even more about bath time, don’t you? How can we find out even more? Hm.
(TV beeping) Oh yeah, we can watch
the Bath Time Channel. Oh, turn yourself on, TV. (upbeat music) – [Announcer] Welcome to
the Bath Time Channel, all baths all the time. We’re all washed up. And now it’s time for a bath with the bath lady, Bubbles Martin. – Hi there, Bubbles Martin here, and as you can see, I’m taking a bath. Bath time is my favorite time of day. I love washing. Hey, you wanna wash, too? You don’t have to be taking
a bath, you can pretend. It’s the next best thing. (upbeat music) Okay, everybody wash! Everybody wash your hands. Everybody wash your face. Everybody wash your ears. Everybody wash your hair. Everybody wash your heel, ya know, the back part of your foot. Everybody wash your kneecaps. I know they’re here somewhere. Found ’em! Scrub, scrub, scrub. Everybody wash your thumbs, both of them. Everybody wash your big toe. That’s easy to find. Everybody wash everything! This is still Bubbles Martin
saying have a nice bath. So long! (upbeat music) – [Announcer] Coming up next
on the Bath Time Channel, Bath Masterson starring Soapy Sales. (TV beeping) – No, wait, wait, TV. Elmo wants to learn more about bath time! Oh boy, how can we find out more? (doorbell rings) Who could that be? – Wanna talk to a bathtub? – Oh yeah, we can talk
to a bathtub. (laughs) – Yeah. – So, what is it like
being a bathtub, Bathtub? – It’s kind of draining. (both laugh) – So, how does Bathtub work? – Well, ya turn on the water
with my faucets here, see? – Oh, right here?
– Mm-hm. – Oh.
– And ya turn the faucets to make sure nice warm water comes outta my spout up there. – Oh.
– Make sure it’s not too hot, Elmo. – A spout.
– Mm-hm. – Not to hot.
– Yeah. Of course some folks prefer showers, so the water could also flow
from my shower head up there. – Up here?
– Mm-hm. – Oh yeah, cool. – No, warm, nice and warm. But ya know, Elmo, you don’t
need a bathtub to get clean. – You don’t? – Mm-mm, no.
– Oh. – There are no bathtubs out in nature, but animals can still get
clean, even a little mouse. – Oh.
– Yeah. – Oh look, look, look. Dorothy’s imagining Elmo as a little mouse in nature getting clean. (chuckles) Elmo mouse is getting squeaky clean. Squeak, squeak, squeak. – [Bathtub] Big elephants get clean, too. (rain pattering) – Oh boy, shower time.

our hero, Trash Gordon, on the planet Mud being
attacked by the muddy mud orks. He moved to the right, then to the left, then he had a great idea. He reached for their favorite
dessert, apple pie a la mud. They loved it. – Glug, glug, glug. – Glug, glug, glug. (mud orks grumbling) – [Oscar] Then Trash proclaimed proudly… – Ha ha, ha ha! Sesame Street has been
