(whimsical music) ♪ La la la la, la la la la ♪ ♪ La la la la la la la la ♪ ♪ Elmo’s full of wonder,
wonder what he will discover ♪ ♪ In Elmo’s wonderful world ♪ (laughs) Hi, welcome to Elmo’s World. Oh, guess what Elmo is
wondering about today? Wait for it, wait (laughs) for it. Oh (laughs), nursery rhymes. There’s lots of them,
oh, like Humpty Dumpty. Hi, oh, hi, cat and the fiddle. Oh, hi, old woman that
lives in a shoe (laughs). Elmo loves nursery rhymes and wants to find out more about them. Hey (laughs), let’s ask
Elmo’s friend Smartie. Let’s call her together. – [Elmo and Children] Oh, Smartie! (Smartie chirping) – Hiya, Elmo! – Oh (laughs), hi, Smartie. Oh, Smartie looks great! – I dressed up as my
favorite nursery rhyme. ♪ Twinkle twinkle, little star ♪ (laughs)
– Oh (laughs), well, that’s perfect, Smartie, because Elmo wants to learn
all about nursery rhymes. – Well, what do we do
to learn something new? – [Children, Elmo, and
Smartie] We look it up! – Getting the story on nursery rhymes. A nursery rhyme is a short poem or a song that rhymes and can tell a story. Jack be nimble, Jack be quick. Jack jumped over the candlestick. And there’s lots of
others, like Little Bo Peep and Humpty Dumpty, just to mention a few. (whimsical music) – Hey (laughs), Smartie rhymed. – That’s right, Elmo.
(Elmo laughs) Well, I’m off, see ya! – Oh, thank you, Smartie, bye bye. Boy, nursery rhymes sure are a lot of fun. Hey (laughs), that gives Elmo an idea. Oh, let’s play a game together. Yeah, come on, come on. (whimsical music)
(laughs) (bright music) Three pieces of this puzzle are missing. Let’s see if we can put
them in the right place. Is that right? – [Child] No, that piece
is blue like the sky. Put it in the sky. That’s right! – [Elmo] Now how about this piece? – [Child] It’s part of the wall. Put it on the bottom. – [Child] Yeah, down there. – [Elmo] Okay, the last piece. Oh, that’s weird, it’s not fitting. – [Child] Yeah, it’s upside down. Try turning it around. – Oh, thank you. We did it! Wow, Elmo really loves nursery rhymes. Oh, and that makes Elmo wonder even more. Does Mr. Noodle have a
favorite nursery rhyme? Let’s ask him. (laughs) – [Elmo and Children] Hi, Mr. Noodle. – Oh (laughs), it’s Mr.
Noodle’s brother, Mr. Noodle. Hi, Mr. Noodle. Mr. Noodle, Elmo was wondering, do you have a favorite nursery rhyme? Oh, boy, can you show us? – [Child] Yeah, show us. He’s Little Bo Peep! – [Elmo] (laughs) Wow, Little Bo Peep is Mr. Noodle’s favorite nursery rhyme? (horn honking)
Oh! (laughs) Oh, wait a minute, Elmo
thinks Little Bo Peep has lost something.
(whimsical music) Oh, can Mr. Noodle show us what she lost? (whimsical music) – [Child] That looks heavy. – [Child] It’s his luggage! – [Elmo] Little Bo Peep lost her luggage? No (laughs), Elmo doesn’t
think that’s right, Mr. Noodle. (whistle shrieks)
Little Bo Peep lost something fluffy. (whimsical music) You got it, okay, whoa! – [Child] He has pancakes. – [Elmo] Oh, well, okay,
those pancakes do look light and fluffy, Mr.
Noodle, but Little Bo Peep didn’t lose her pancakes, silly! (laughs) Little Bo Peep lost something
that is fluffy and goes baa! (cymbal clangs)
(laughs) You got it? Okay, okay, okay. – [Child] Her sheep, that’s right. – [Elmo] That’s right, Mr. Noodle. Little Bo Peep lost her sheep! You did it!
(bell clanging) (sheep bleating) Thanks for showing us your favorite nursery
rhyme, Mr. Noodle (laughs). – [Children] Yeah, bye, Mr. Noodle! (sheep bleating)
– Bye bye! Oh (laughs), learning new
things makes Elmo so happy, it makes him want to dance, come on! ♪ Happy, happy dance, dance ♪ ♪ Happy, happy dance, dance ♪ ♪ When we learn something new ♪ ♪ We do the happy dance, dance ♪ Let’s see your happy dance, yeah, cool!
