Elmo Wants To Be Like Gordon

Season 42, Episode 52 of 99

Elmo wants to be just like Gordon so he has decided to spend the day looking and acting just like him. First Elmo reads the paper just like Gordon, but he becomes bored of this. He asks if he can do more things like Gordon such as the Chicken Dance. Gordon wasn't planning on doing the Chicken Dance, so Elmo and a group of chickens, who also look just like Gordon, show him how they think Gordon would do it. Afterwards Big Bird asks Gordon to read him "Humpty Dumpty". Since Elmo wants to be just like Gordon, he wants to read the book to Big Bird. Unfortunately Elmo can't read, yet. So instead, Elmo listens to Gordon read so that one day he will be able to read just like him. Gordon reads the story so well that Humpty Dumpty, the King's Horses, and the King's Men all come out dressed like Gordon because they want to be just like him, too! Gordon didn't know it was so much fun being himself. THEME: Cognitive Reasoning E / 2
