Sesame Street

Stinky's Annual Birthday Flower

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
Elmo and Zoe are coloring when they find out its Stinky the plant's birthday. Zoe and Elmo decide to get him a present. Elmo surprises Stinky by giving him a drum, but plants can't hold drumsticks. Zoe has an idea! What about a lovely tutu? Zoe surprises Stinky with a tutu to wear when he dances. Stinky tries to dance, but is unable to, as he is a plant in a pot! Rosita and Cookie Monster come along with their own presents. Rosita brings Stinky a guitar but his leaves scratch the strings and make a horrible sound. Next, Cookie Monster rushes in with a plate of cookies but plants don't eat cookies. Big Bird comes along and gives Stinky balloons. He ties the balloons to Stinky's pot, but Stinky begins to fly away! Luckily, Chris rescues him and brings him back safely to the ground. Elmo explains to Chris that they have been trying to get Stinky the perfect birthday gift. Chris reminds Elmo they should think about what Stinky would like for his birthday not what each of them would like. Elmo asks Stinky what plants need. That's easy! He already has soil, so he needs water, sunlight and love! Big Bird carries Stinky's pot over to a spot on the table in the sun, Cookie Monster carries over a pitcher of water and waters Stinky, and Zoe and Rosita give him a big hug! Then they throw him a big birthday party and sing about the importance of giving sun, water, and love to plants like Stinky!
