Sesame Street

Afraid Of The Bark

Season 43, Episode 10 of 27

Elmo and Zoe are playing a game with Zoe's pet rock, Rocco. When it's Elmo's turn to roll Rocco, he rolls him all the way to Barkley the dog, who picks him up and plays with him in his mouth. Bob gives Rocco back to Zoe and explains that Barkley just thought they were playing fetch. Elmo wants to continue playing, but Zoe explains that Rocco doesn't want to play anymore. Just then, she sees Grover with three dogs on leashes, and she becomes frightened. Soon after, a barking dog passes by and Zoe zooms off again. Elmo finally realizes that Zoe must be scared of dogs. When Elmo tells Zoe what he thinks, she says that Rocco is the one afraid of dogs, not her. Elmo offers to help Rocco to not be afraid anymore and introduces Rocco and Zoe to a woman and her dog. At first Zoe is reluctant to meet them, but she becomes more comfortable when she sees that the dog is wearing a tutu just like she is! As soon as the dog barks, though, Zoe runs off again and hides with Rocco. Gina comes upon Zoe and teaches her what to do when she meets a dog. Zoe and Rocco follow these steps to meet Barkley and Zoe becomes more comfortable. She even asks him to sit and give her his paw. Zoe says that she isn't afraid anymore, but corrects herself and says, "Rocco's not afraid anymore." Bob asks if Zoe would like to hold Barkley's leash and she says yes! They take Barkley for a walk and sing together about how much fun it is to walk a dog.
