Sesame Street

Chicken When It Comes To Thunderstorms

Season 42, Episode 15 of 99

It's a windy, overcast day on Sesame Street. Elmo, Abby, Leela, and some chickens have just won the first game of the T-ball season. They are celebrating with Chris when they hear a loud rumble of thunder and raindrops start falling. The chickens start to panic, and everyone gathers into Hooper's Store where it's safe. Elmo suggests that the chickens cover their eyes so they don't get scared by the lightning, but that doesn't stop them from hearing the thunder. Abby waves her wand and puts earmuffs on the chickens. This time, they don't hear the thunder but they can still see the lightning! As they continue to panic, Leela suggests that they comfort the chickens by telling them that they are safe and explain what thunderstorms are. One chicken calms down, but the other three are still scared. To help the others feel better, Chris suggests that they try watching the storm like a fireworks show, which calms down one more chicken. Then, they count in between the lightning and thunder to hear the storm moving away. This calms down the third chicken. Finally, they make their own lighting and thunder musical performance inside Mr. Hopper's store and the fourth chicken is calmed down, too.. Now they can all enjoy some lemonade!
