Baby Bear, Elmo, Telly, and Abby gather around a growth chart as Chris measures them and marks their height. Everyone has their own color lines on the chart, and can see how they've grown over time. When it's Elmo's turn, he sees that he grew only a little bit. He is not happy; he wants to be taller right now! First he zips in wearing a tall beehive wig. Then he tries wearing a pair of his mommy's high-heeled shoes. Chris points out, that while these things do make him taller, he is still the same height. Elmo convinces Abby to grant his wish and make him taller. At first, he grows just a little taller, but thanks to Abby's spell, he keeps growing and growing and soon he is taller than the buildings! Abby tries to shrink him, but the spell doesn't work. Elmo likes being gigantic. But she calls her mommy for advice, and learns that in order for the shrinking spell to work, Elmo has got to want to go back to his normal size. Elmo likes being gigantic. Chris suggests that Elmo just needs to see what he is missing by being so humongously tall. Telly suggests they jump rope, but Elmo is way too tall to jump in. Abby suggests they play hide and seek, but Elmo quickly learns that he is too big to find a hiding spot. Finally, Chris suggests they all go have a snack in Hooper's, but Elmo can't fit through the door. This makes Elmo very sad and he realizes that he wants to go back to his normal size. Abby casts her spell and super-sized Elmo goes back to being Elmo-sized Elmo. Everyone gives Elmo a big hug, now that they can reach him again!
