Elmo's Chicken Dream (#4063)

Elmo had a fun dream about learning a great chicken dance called the "Clucky Clucky," but now that Elmo's awake, he really wants to have his chicken dream all over again. Elmo asks various people for help in trying to figure out how to have his chicken dance dream again. Maria tries to help Elmo by singing him a lullaby, but he finds it difficult to fall asleep with all the noise on the street. Then, Rosita tries to help Elmo by singing him a chicken lullaby in Spanish, but he still doesn't have his favorite chicken dream! Finally, Big Bird comes along and shows Elmo a book called, "I Dream of Chicken," which says that in order to dream about a dancing chicken, Elmo has to stare at a dancing chicken right before he goes to sleep. Soon, Bob, who is dressed as a chicken, walks by and agrees to help Elmo. Elmo stares at Bob who is dancing a chicken dance as he is trying to fall asleep. Elmo also asks Rosita to play her chicken lullaby at the same time in order to help him fall asleep faster. Elmo finally falls asleep, and is now back in his chicken dream singing and dancing the "CLUCKY CLUCKY!" Harvey Fierstein - Sings "Everything's Coming up Noses".
