- pigeon? i am not a pigeon. - you're not?- no? - no. i am a robin, madamerobin redbreast to be exact. what in the world madeyou think that i, i was a--ugh--pigeon? - oh, dear. well, you see,we've been looking for a bird. - yeah. with feathers anda beak and wings. - yeah. but we founda chickadee, and he was much too small, so we needed a biggerbird, and then we found you.

- yeah!- ha ha ha! yes, but, my dears,there are ever so many birds that are biggerthan a chickadee. were you looking fora bird with a beautiful red breast, hmm? - gosh. um, no. - no. we neverthought about color. - wait, wait, wait. elmojust thought about color now. it's called a blue bar pigeon,so it must have blue on it.

- oh, yeah. that's right. hmm. i remember thepicture on bert's list. the blue bar pigeon had bluestripes on it, so we need to find a bird that hasblue stripes on it! - right!- well, now if you'll excuse me, i have to sing my song. - what? you're a singer? - oh, ho ho ho! of course. all birds sing songs.

i used to sing atthe nestropolitan opera house. ♪ listen to this ♪ - ok. - wow! that is beautiful. - thank you, thank you. yes. we robins are knownfor our lovely song. if you hear this... you will always know thereis a robin nearby. - oh, boy. i wish icould make that sound.

it's so nice. - ooh. well you can doit just like this. chirrup, cheerly, cheerly. try it!- ok. - chirrup, cheerly, cheerly.chirrup, cheerly, cheerly. - come on, come on, come on. make the robin soundwith robin and abby. - here we go. - oh, ho ho! splendid,darlings, splendid.

- thank you, miss robin. - well, if you excuse us,please, we have to find a bird with blue on it. - yeah. elmo and abby will belistening for your pretty song from now on. - thank you. ta-ta. - ta-ta. ooh! look, look, look, abby! another bird, andit's kind of big.

i'm a blue jay. - wow! i never knew therewere so many different types of birds. - oh, yeah! but the goodthing is we all look different and we sound different. it's actually kindof interesting. - well, elmo and abby heardthe call of the chickadee and the song of the robin. would you let us hearthe call of the blue jay?

- ooh! with we go. [screeching] - whoa! that sure is differentfrom chickadee-dee-dee! - or chirrup, cheerly, cheerly.chirrup, cheerly, cheerly. - yeah. for sure. - well, let's see if we canmake this blue jay sound, ok? ooh. you can try it, too. here we go.- all right. - jay, jay, jay!jay, jay, jay!

- yeah. no wonderbert hasn't seen one. - yeah. it's too bad we don't know the sound that blue bar pigeon makes. - why, abby? - well, because it'slike the blue jay said. every bird makesa different sound. if we know what soundthe blue bar pigeon makes, then we couldlisten for that sound and then find it.

- oh, yeah. ha ha ha! - if we only knew whatsound a pigeon makes. - wait a minute! abby andelmo do know what sound a pigeon makes. - we do?- yeah, yeah. remember? look, look. remember? when elmo and abby wereplaying spaceship and making space noises... - yeah. like this.

bbbbllll, bbbbllll,bbbbllll, bbbbllll. huh? - well, bert thought wesounded just like pigeons. - that's right. so we needto listen for a sound like bbbbllll, bbbbllll,bbbbllll, bbbbllll. and then we can finda blue bar pigeon! - yeah. come on. let's listen. - [chickadee chirping] - ah. that sounds likechickadee-dee-dee. - [chirping]

- yeah. and that'sthe call of the chickadee. - let's keep listening.- ok. - [robin singing] - that sounds likechirrup, cheerly, cheerly. - yes. - [singing] - elmo remembers that sound. it's a robin's song. - hey. we betterkeep listening.

- hello! welcome to the flyingfairy school puppet theater. it's puppet time,so grab a puppet and make it move. - ok, puppet,let's see your moves. excuse me, puppet.aah! oh, no! [gasp] i can't feel a pulse. go on, breathe, darn you!breathe! - blogg, you do know thatpuppet's not alive, don't you? - not on my watch!

[gasp] it worked! it's a miracle! hey, what are you doingwith those strings? - puppets can't moveon their own. you got to pull their stringsto make them move, like this. - i can do that. - well, actually, i thinkit's more like this. - i don't need help. - well, maybe if you--- ah-ah-ah!

i can do it myself. ooh, this puppet stuff hastoo many strings attached. i'll just get himto move another way. - how?- i'm gonna turn this puppet into a real boy. - oh, that doesn't soundlike a good idea. - sure it is.i'll just usethe blue fairy special, and i think it goes like this. go to a luau, eat some poi,

and turn this puppetinto a real boy. come on, real boywho was once a puppet. let's boogie down. why can't i boogie down? - you're a puppet. - nonsense. puppets aremade of wood. [knocking] aah! i'm a puppet! - oh, dear.looks like someonetried to turn a puppet

- don't worry--i canjust turn myself back. [grunting] - i'm afraid that's impossible even if you couldmove your arms. you see, the only way to turna puppet into a real boy is to go throughthe pinocchio process! - what's the pinocchio process? - the pinocchio processis a series of steps that goes like this.

hop with a cricket,do the donkey dance of joy, swim with a whale, and you'llbecome a real boy. - looks like we haveto find some animals. - yeah. first up, a cricket. - i can do problem. - um, maybe i'd betterpoof us there. but where do you find a cricket? - well, a cricket's an insect, and i always see insectsout in the grass.

- then let's get upand get out of class and look for a cricketin the grass. - all right, class,let's find a cricket. they look like this. - [cricket chirping] - ah, something moved. - oh, is it a cricket? - hey, can't a ladybugget some privacy? - a ladybug. ha!we better keep looking.

- something's crawlingbetween my toes! [giggles] - maybe it's a cricket. - yikes. what kind of bugis that? - time for a termite snack. - [gasp] a termite.they eat wood, you know. - eat wood?! - [munch] this woodtastes like feet. blergh. [chirp chirp] - ha! what's that sound?

- [gasp] it's a cricket! - go, boy!time to hop! - you want us to helppull your strings? - nah. i can do it myself. well, you can help if you want,but i definitely do not need it. hop, hop, hop.hop, hop, hop. my legs--they're back to normal. - yay! - darn you!

- uh-oh. why isthe rest of blogg's bodystill puppet? - because blogg has to gothrough the next step of the pinocchio process-- the donkey dance of joy. - then let us go find a donkey. - we don't needa giraffe or a monkey. what we need is a donkey. - come on, donkey. let us dothe donkey dance of joy.

- [donkey brays] - aah! donkey tells me he does not want to dothe donkey dance of joy! - probably because he'sa very angry donkey. aah! what are we gonna do? - maybe we need somethingto make that donkey happy. - but what makes donkeys happy? - i don't know!let's ask spot. - spot. oh, spot.

- [spot barks] - oh, hi, spot. how do you make a donkey happy? - fetch, spot, fetch! - hay. hay. hay. ♪ go and tell your whole class ♪ ♪ that it comesfrom the dry grass ♪ ♪ you find it in a haystack ♪ ♪ some animals have itfor a snack ♪

♪ talking about hay,hay...hay! ♪ - [spot barks]- what did that song have to do with donkeys? - let's twinkle think. - ♪ twinkle think,twinkle think ♪ - i know.- yow! - i think the donkeyis a punk rocker. - i think the answer probablyhas something to do with hay. - [donkey brays]- oh! oh!

maybe the donkey likes, that can't be it. - sure it can, gonnigan. the song said animalshave hay for a snack. maybe the donkey's hungry, hungry for hay. - ok, then. listen to what i say. give us a big plate of hay. - it worked![all cheering] - wingwhack. [all cheering]

- and the donkey's happy. - and he's doingthe donkey dance of joy. - i got to dance with him. i don't need help. if you insist. [moaning]- [giggling] [grunts, sighs] - hee-haw!hee-haw! hee-haw!

- wow! it worked. blogg's arms and wingsare back now! - but i still havea puppet head. - that's because you haven'tdone the last step of the pinocchio process. you have to swim with a whale. - and whales livein the ocean, so, let's get our wheels in motion. poof on down to the ocean.

well, here we are,and there's the whale! - aah! i didn't expect itto be so huge! - now's your chance, blogg.swim with a whale. - ok! here i go! [whimpering] - what's wrong? - i can't do it. - sure you can.your arms and legs and wings are allback to normal.

- but i don't know how you swim. - oh, no. - maybe you can ask forsomething to get you to swim. - ah! how about rocket fins? - blogg...- ok. i admit it. i can't do this on my own.i need help. - you heard him, gonnigan. - ok. i can help,i think. - let's swim!

- ha. and reach and pulland a-kick, kick, kick and a-reach and a-pulland a kick-kick-kick. i'm doing it.i'm swimming with a whale! and i'm back to normal! - thanks, whale,and thank you all. i couldn't havedone it without you. - swimming with whaleswas really cool, but now let's allgo back to school. - i know a different wayto get them to move.
