Sesame Street

How Many Balloons To Raise Snuffy?

Season 40, Episode 88 of 100

Snuffy wants to be a real cloud in the sky. He wonders how he is going to get up there and then realizes that he could use a balloon to lift him up. He wishes for a balloon and the Fairy Balloon Person (Richard Kind) comes to grant his wish. Since it's going to take more than one balloon to lift him up, the Fairy Balloon Person keeps adding 5 more balloons each time until they reach 40 balloons. He starts to fly up to the sky going higher and higher. While Snuffy is happy to be seeing birds and other clouds, he starts to get cold and lonely being all by himself. Snuffy wishes to go back down and his wish is granted. He realizes that everyone he loves is down on Sesame Street and that he would rather be a snuffleupagus than a cloud any day. Guest: Richard Kind - (Film, Television and Broadway Star)
