What is Elmo Thinking about Today?


Elmo opens the door to a pile of toys and games that fall into the room. A video montage shows children playing games.

Mr. Noodle

Dorothy has a checkers game decoration in her fish bowl. She wants to know how to play a game.
Mr. Noodle and Mr. Noodle's brother Mr. Noodle exchange their vests, then they pull on opposing ends of a rope, pulling one and then the other off the screen until they get the entire rope onto the screen, then turn the rope different ways until they figure out how to jump rope together.

Dorothy Wants to Ask Someone Else


Kids show Dorothy how they play a memory card game, Simon Says, and tag. Elmo asks a baby that babbles and plays This Little Piggy with her.

Video Email


Computer plays hide-and-seek with Elmo and he looks for Computer. He asks Shade to open up. She does, but computer is not here. Elmo walks around the room and to see if Computer is in the Door. He opens Door, and he accidentally bothers a little duck playing a game, so he closes Door so the duck doesn't get bothered anymore. Elmo finds the computer who was hiding behind the Drawer. When Elmo found computer, he gets an e-mail from Ernie and Rubber Duckie, who play 'hide and squeak'.

Elmo Has a Question for You


Elmo counts six frogs and one kangaroo playing leapfrog.



Elmo plays "Three of These Things Belong Together" with a soccer ball, a jump rope, jacks and Stinky the Stinkweed. Stinky disagrees with the voice-over kids, insisting that you can play a game with him. He demonstrates, playing Simon Says by "growing" a flower.



Elmo's friend Abigail plays "Where Is Thumbkin?" by herself, her friend Juan sings it in Spanish, and then they play it together. Elmo later makes up his own game of "Where Is Thumbkin?" in the end.



TV appears for Elmo to play tag but Elmo wanted to watch The Game Channel if Elmo tags TV. This channel tells the story of a brother and sister who love to play dress-up and what they imagine doing. They dress up as pirates, royalty, cowfolks, and then they go to bed. Coming up next: "JumpRope" by Alfred Hopscotch.

Tickle Me Land


Dorothy decides to play the imagination game and imagines three Elmos playing "Ring Around the Rosie" (one Elmo fell up instead of down) and two Elmos playing basketball.


The Games Song

Elmo sings The Games Song and TV then chases Elmo by playing tag once again!


The film scene was cut.
