Sesame Street

Telly The Tiebreaker

Season 41, Episode 69 of 99

Elmo, Zoe, Rosita and some friends are making a beautiful block house together but can't agree whether to put a square or circle on top. Alan helps them solve the problem by having them raise their hands for the one they like best. After counting up the votes, the square wins by one. Later, Zoe and Elmo want to sing a song but Zoe wants to sing "Twinkle-Twinkle" and Elmo wants to sing "Row-Row-Row". Voting helped solve the problem last time but this time it's a tie, even with Rocco and Dorothy voting too. Alan explains that since both sides have the same number of votes they need one more voter to decide which one wins. Telly becomes the tie breaker but wants Zoe and Elmo to convince him which to choose. They take turns showing Telly brand new, fun ways to sing their songs. Telly says that it's too hard to decide and wishes they could be voting on something simple like who wants to do "The Triangle Dance". Elmo, Dorothy, Zoe and Rocco all agree that it sounds like fun. It's unanimous! Everyone votes for "The Triangle Dance" and they all dance together. THEME: Mathematics, A, 9
