Big Bird Waits for Snuffy (#4053)

Big Bird is waiting for Snuffy because they have planned to have a play date. They planned to meet where they always meet, next to the tree on Sesame Street. Snuffy is late and Big Bird begins to wonder, maybe he is at the wrong tree? Big Bird tries the other tree, but Snuffy is not there either. Big Bird decides to sing while he waits and as he starts to la-la Snuffy appears behind him. As it turns out, they had actually planned a play date for tomorrow so they decide to stand together and wait until tomorrow comes. They find lots of various ways to keep busy while waiting.

Series Description: SESAME STREET has garnered more than 100 awards, including 101 Emmys, two Peabodys, four Parents' Choice Awards and an Action for Children's Television Special Achievement Award. The series delivers academic and social education that prepares kids for grade school. Since its premiere, the show's base curriculum has been set by academic research on preschoolers. Encore episodes focus on music and art and how these tools can be used to develop the whole child - the cognitive, social, emotional and physical attributes. In addition, "Elmo's World," which looks at the world through the eyes of a three-year-old, continues as a featured segment. Themes include birthdays, pets, teeth, families, games and more.
