Sesame Street

Humpty Dumpty's Big Break

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
Telly is very worried about Humpty Dumpty falling off the wall, but Humpty explains that he is there to watch a football game. Just as the game is about to start, one of All the King's Horses comes limping in and says he can't play. It's Humpty's dream to play football, so he offers to replace him, but Telly is very worried that Humpty will break. Humpty pulls out his helmet and pads and says not to worry. The game starts, and Humpty goes for the ball, crashes, and cracks. Telly wants to help him, so he asks the question: "How do you keep an egg from breaking when he's playing football?" A real design challenge! Telly first tries wrapping Humpty in a cushion. The game resumes and crack - Humpty is down again. The cushion is too soft. Next, Telly tries a suit made out of sponges, but even though the sponges are bouncier than the cushion, they don't work too well either. Humpty is not giving up, and Telly is determined to help him. As Chris demonstrates how fragile an egg shell is, a chicken enters with a carton of eggs and shows that none are cracked. This gives Telly the brilliant idea to make a special egg carton for Humpty. It fits like a second shell, Humpty goes on to score a touchdown, and everyone is happy.
