What is Elmo Thinking about Today?
Elmo opens his door, who was sleeping with shade, and wakes up the Two-Headed Monster.

Kids and Baby
Kids go to sleep with teddy bears and sleep in bunk beds. Babies go to sleep in cribs.
Elmo tries to wake up his sleepwalking computer and snoring mouse, in order to see his e-mail. Ernie sends a message while Bert snores in the bed next to him. Ernie's not sleepy, so he decides to play his bugle, thus waking up Bert.
Elmo Has a Question for You
Elmo counts how many elephants can sleep on a bed. In the end, a feather makes the bed fall down.
Elmo wakes the Drawer up by shouting "Cock-a-doodle-doo!" Telephones wake people up and horses sleep standing up. Cookies don't sleep, but Cookie Monster dreams about them while he sleeps (sweet dreams).
Elmo wakes up TV with cymbals and tunes in to The Sleep Channel, which features "The Girl Who Loved to Sleep." Stay tuned for Supermarket Sleep and Snooze at 6:00.
Elmo talks to a Bed and Pillow ("You tell 'em, Beddy-boy!") and a nest with a bird sleeping outside the shade.
Tickle Me Land
Dorothy imagines Elmo as a flamingo, a squirrel, and a flock of sleeping bats.
The Sleep Song
Elmo and friends sing "The Sleep Song." The bed notes that a sleep song is called a lullaby. Elmo begins to fall asleep, so bed, pillow, and the nest with the bird finish singing for Elmo.
- This is the only episode to not feature a film insert.
- This episode uses the same descending sound effect from Bicycles, albeit it ends earlier. Then the updated E Flat boing sound plays after the sound ends early That's because Door is closing quicker than usual to get some sleep.
- The kids and baby scene was cut in later airings and international broadcasts.
