Sesame Street

Elmo Wants to Have A Ball

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
Elmo's daddy has given him a dollar and he is not sure what to buy. He sees lots of things that are interesting, but decides that he wants a Stupendous Ball. The only problem is that it costs five dollars. He asks Luis how people get money, and Luis explains that people usually work to get money. Elmo wonders where he can work, and Luis offers him a job helping him fix the ice cream maker. Elmo does, and Luis gives him one dollar. Elmo now has 2 dollars, but it's still not enough for the Stupendous Ball. Luis tells him he just needs to save some more money, and he can do that by putting his money in a piggy bank. Luis quickly makes him one out of a jar, and Elmo puts his money in it. Elmo earns another dollar helping Leela fold clothes, and another one returning empty bottles to Hooper's Store. Elmo is careful not to spend any of his four dollars and saves them instead. Then he gets a card from his nana with one dollar in it, and finally, after waiting and working and saving, he has five dollars! Just as he is about to pay for his Stupendous Ball, Cookie Monster come by and is very sad that he has no money to buy cookies. Elmo gives him one of his dollars and tells Luis that he will just save a little longer. But then he sees the Fantastic Ball, which is green and makes a cool sound and only costs four dollars, exactly how much Elmo has. He buys it and happily plays a catch with Luis.
