Episode Guide »
Max the Magician magically appears on Sesame Street as Rosita, Big Bird, and Elmo are eating snacks with Chris. Everyone is excited to see some real magic. First, Max takes one scarf out of his pocket and puts it with two other scarves to make three scarves - what was two has become three. Everyone is amazed and wants to know the secret to the trick. Max refuses to tell, but Chris explains that it was actually just addition. Max's next trick involves making cards disappear one by one. They all agree that this is the best trick they've ever seen and ask Max to tell them how he did it. Max cannot tell because of the Magician's Code of Honor but lets Chris guess again. Chris explains that when Max threw away each card, it was subtraction. For the last trick, Max will get Big Bird to help him turn one piece of rope into two pieces of rope. Big Bird figures this one out -Max divided it by cutting it into two pieces. All of Max's tricks were actually math! Max the Magician is stunned that everyone guessed the secrets of his tricks and leaves to find tricks that no one will ever figure out. He disappears leaving everyone amazed and unable to guess how he did it!
