Fish-Sitters for Dorothy (#4042)

Elmo really, really wants to go to a baseball game with Gordon but he doesn't want to leave Dorothy alone. He wants to find a fish-sitter who could watch Dorothy in his absence. Both Baby Bear and Telly volunteer. Elmo explains all of the necessary skills and responsibilities involved in being a good fish-sitter. One would need to feed Dorothy, sing to Dorothy, make funny faces, and so on. Baby Bear and Telly compete for the position. Elmo ends up saying that Dorothy is only comfortable with Elmo. Finally, Gordon agrees to take Dorothy with them to the baseball game. [58 minutes] Closed Captioning
