Sesame Street

Chris Is Introduced

Season 41, Episode 36 of 99

Gordon and Susan's nephew, Chris Robinson, just moved to Sesame Street. He is looking for a job in the Help Wanted section of the newspaper because he needs money to buy books for school. Chris thinks the first ad might be for a job as a gym teacher because it reads, "Must love to exercise." When he reports to the Count who placed the ad, he discovers that instead of teaching children how to exercise, the Count wants Chris to do exercises so that the Count can count them! The second ad Chris follows is for a sales job, selling cookies for Cookie Monster. That job doesn't work out either because although Chris is a great salesman, Cookie Monster can not handle parting with his delicious cookies. Next, Chris follows an ad to be a dance partner. Despite the fact that his dance partner is Horatio Elephant, his audition goes well and he gets the job! Chris has to turn it down, however, when he learns he would be earning peanuts, not money. Chris is just about to give up when he sees a "Help Wanted" sign hanging in Hooper's Store window. He meets Alan who tells him he needs help stocking shelves, working the register, and sweeping up. Chris excitedly takes the job and can't wait to start! EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVE: Cognitive reasoning.
