Sesame Street

Hansel & Gretel's Playdate With Big Bird

Season 43, Episode 3 of 27

Hansel and Gretel come to Sesame Street for a play date with Big Bird. As they walk to Big Bird's nest, Hansel realizes that he's not sure how to get back to the subway station afterwards. Gretel agrees and thinks they should leave a trail, so they leave a trail of cookie crumbs. When they get to Big Bird's nest, and tell him about what they did, they learn that Cookie Monster ate all the cookie crumbs! Big Bird suggests that they make a new trail and shows them how to get back so they will remember: walk past Oscar's can, past the 123 building, turn at the tree, and past Hooper's store. There will be the subway station. Hansel and Gretel make a new path using paper because Cookie Monster won't eat paper, but the paper blows away in the wind! Next, they make the trail using fish because Cookie Monster doesn't like fish and fish don't blow away. They are finally ready for their play date when the Flying Halibut Fish Jugglers use the fish from the path to juggle! Hansel and Gretel are worried they won't know the way again, but Big Bird reminds them of how to get back. They follow Big Bird's directions and successfully reach the subway station! Hooray!
