Sesame Street

Wing in a Sling

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
Big Bird is happily roller skating along Sesame Street. Uh-oh! Crash! Big Bird falls down! Chris runs over to help Big Bird who has injured his wing. Chris suggests they visit Dr. Berger so she can take a look, while the Count offers to watch Hooper's store until Chris and Big Bird get back. Big Bird is nervous when they visit Dr. Berger's office. What if it hurts? Dr. Berger carefully examines Big Bird's wing and explains to Big Bird that while his wing isn't broken, he has a bad sprain. Dr. Berger gently puts a sling on Big Bird's arm and explains he has to rest for a few days. Big Bird is sad because he was planning on roller skating all day! When they return, Big Bird looks around Sesame Street and feels blue; there is nothing for him to do. Big Bird sees Elmo and Zoe who are playing with a beach ball. They ask him if he wants to play, but he can't; not with his wing in a sling. Elmo and Zoe want to cheer up Big Bird. They sing about all the things Big Bird can do with an injured wing, such as singing songs, drawing pictures, and drinking birdseed milkshakes. Big Bird realizes there are lots of things he can do, especially spending time with good friends!
