Sesame Street

Figure It Out Baby

Episode Guide »
Alan and Telly are very excited that their favorite singer, LMNOP, is performing on Sesame Street. Alan is arranging his memorabilia from previous concerts when LMNOP approaches asking where his entourage is. After a phone call, LMNOP finds out that they are in San Diego and says that his performance on Sesame Street will have to be canceled. But Alan and Telly insist that he doesn't leave. Chris reassures LMNOP that they could come up with everything he needs to perform. LMNOP agrees and says that the first thing he needs is a guitar. After learning about how to make one on the internet, Chris, Allen, and Telly are able to construct a guitar out of a paper towel tube, transparent tape, rubber bands, a pencil, and a tissue box. Chris explains that the pencil will help create sound by raising the rubber bands up off the box to make it easier for them to vibrate. LMNOP is ready to try the guitar out on stage but there is no stage. Chris, Allen, and Telly construct a stage out of vegetable crates reinforced with tape so the crates will stay together and be strong enough. It works! LMNOP jumps onto the stage and now asks for a sound check. Together they construct a microphone using lampshades. They will help amplify the sound and make it louder for the audience to hear. The last thing LMNOP needs is flashlights for lights and he's ready to perform! With help from Chris, Alan, and Telly, LMNOP gives a great performance on Sesame Street.
