Prince Charming and Sleeping Beauty are playing checkers when Sleeping Beauty falls asleep right in the middle of their game.

Now Oscar’s really losing his grouchy viewers. There has been an elephant stuck in Maria’s bathtub all day, which could just be the kind of grouchy news him and his viewers need. Bob happened to be watching the Grouch News Network, and came to the rescue with a bag of peanuts to get the elephant out! Oscar’s show is ruined. Lucky for him, it’s so nice, happy and sweet that it’s aggravating! The grouches love it and Oscar wins a Phlemmy Award.moreless

Rosita is about to show Abby how they play hide-and-seek, but Abby mentions another game, "Jumping Rhymes", which piques Zoe's interests. Zoe and Abby are good at the game, but Rosita has trouble thinking of words that rhyme with "chair," and can only think of made-up words. Rosita insists they play hide-and-seek next, and tells Abby how to play it. Zoe and Abby hide while Rosita counts. While they hide, Abby is impressed by Zoe's tutu, and asks Zoe to teach her how to dance ballet. Rosita finishes counting and is about to look for them, when she encounters them both dancing ballet instead of hiding. She runs off, frustrated and angry.Meanwhile, at the Fix-it Shop, an anxious rabbit desperately needs his teapot fixed for a tea party. He realizes he's late, and runs off. Just then, Rosita shows up and tells Maria and Gabi how angry she feels at Zoe and Abby. Maria tells her to take a deep breath, which helps a little. Zoe and Abby catch up with Rosita and ask her what happened. Rosita is so angry she can only express her feelings in Spanish at first, but Zoe realizes how angry she is. They reassure her that they do want to play with her, even though they got distracted by ballet earlier. They all agree to take turns choosing what to play, and Rosita asks for her turn to choose hide-and-seek. They're all friends again! The monsters (and fairy) run off to play hide-and-seek, but the rabbit comes back to remind Maria and Gabi that they have a teapot to fix ...moreless

  • Maria the Chicken?
    Episode 9
    Zoe and Rosita find Abby’s magic wand and Rosita wonders what it would be like to be a fairy god-monster and do magic.

When the sparkles clear, Maria is gone and a chicken is there in her place. Something went terribly wrong and now they have to figure out how to change Maria back. First they try saying another rhyme, and then a rhyme in Spanish while hopping at the same time, but things only seem to be getting worse. When Abby comes to find her wand, Rosita tells her what she had done and that they need Abby’s help. Abby has been getting better at her magic rhymes so she tries to change Maria back, but now Maria’s a clucking pumpkin! To everyone’s surprise, Maria shows up out of nowhere. It turns out that she was in the hardware store. The pumpkin sounds awfully like Mrs. Chicken, though, who was coming to pick up her toaster from the Fix It Shop. Good thing Abby’s mommy could help fix everything!moreless

    Telly finds Gordon practicing outside for a game of golf he is going to play with Alan. When Telly learns how golf is played, he decides that if Gordon really wants to practice he should do it as if he were on a real golf course. When Gordon tells him a real golf course can have hills in it, Telly thinks of a way to make hills. After considering using a turkey sandwich, which would be too flat, or a basketball, which might roll away, he finally comes up with the idea of using pillows. When Gordon tells him a real golf course can have water hazards, Telly decides to borrow Bert and Ernie’s wading pool. When Gordon tells him there could be sand traps, Telly asks two children to bring over some buckets of sand. Gordon diligently practices under all these conditions when Alan arrives and says that, according to the weather report, it is going to be really windy. Telly has the solution- a large fan. By now a crowd has gathered to cheer Gordon on, and the ball goes in! Thanks to Telly, Gordon is definitely ready for a real round of golf on a real golf course!moreless

The three friends decide to explain their predicament to Gabi. Gabi suggests they sing a song about the number three, but they don’t know a song about three. As they are trying to figure out a song, Abby says it’s too bad they can’t come up with a song of their own… but maybe they can! With Elmo and Abby’s encouragement, Big Bird starts the song.

  • Telly invites Baby Bear to the Triangle Lover’s meeting so his best friend can be there when he gets crowned Triangle Lover of the Day. The meeting begins with the building of the triangle in the same way they always do it. Baby Bear asks if they ever considered putting it together in a different order. As he demonstrates, the triangle lovers learn that it doesn’t matter at all. As long as it has three sides and three corners, a triangle is a triangle! Upon hearing the Triangle Lover’s Anthem, Baby Bear suggests a new rhyme to end the song. The Grand High Triangle Lover likes the idea and agrees to the change! Now when Baby Bear hears the Triangle Lovers’ Cheer, he can’t help but think of a great way to improve that too. The time has finally come to crown the Triangle Lover of the Day and the decision is for it to be Baby Bear, not Telly! Telly is so upset, but Baby Bear helps Telly feel better by reminding him that he may win the crown at the next meeting.moreless
