Sesame Street

Practice Makes Proud

Season 43, Episode 9 of 27

Elmo is ready to play basketball. He has his special basketball shirt to wear, his special basketball to play with, and a healthy snack to give him energy. Abby appears and says that she can be Elmo's fairy godmother and help him with all sorts of stuff. Elmo begins playing basketball but keeps missing the hoop. This happens a few times, and soon Elmo gets frustrated. As Elmo's fairy godmother, Abby turns the basketball into a magic ball, and when Elmo throws it to the basket, it goes in! He throws the ball again and again, and scores every time! Elmo is happy that he keeps getting the basketball in the hoop, but he feels like he is missing something. Leela passes by and helps Elmo figure out what feeling he is missing. To do this, she asks Abby to turn the magic ball back into a regular basketball. Leela gives Elmo some pointers about how to play basketball. Elmo doesn't score a basket right away, but after much practice, he scores! He did it all by himself and feels proud, the feeling he was missing all along.
