Sesame Street

Telly Gets Jealous

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
Telly and Baby Bear are outside playing with their pets. Telly tries to get his hamster, Chuckie Sue, to make squeaky noises, eat out of his hand, run on her wheel, and play a shapes and colors game, but Chuckie Sue does not do any of those things. Telly becomes upset when he sees that Baby Bear's pet, Ralphie, can speak Spanish, make squeaky noises like a hamster, make his own snack, count, AND knows his shapes. Telly exclaims that he is tired of hearing about Ralphie and calls Baby Bear a show-off. He does not want to play with them anymore and storms off. Gordon asks Telly if everything is okay, and Telly explains that he is feeling angry because Ralphie can do things that Chuckie Sue can't, and he wishes he had a parrot just like Baby Bear. Gordon explains to Telly that what he feels is jealous, and that it is normal to feel that way. Telly wants to apologize to Baby Bear but doesn't know how. Every time he sees Baby Bear and Ralphie he gets so jealous he can hardly talk. Gordon suggests a strategy to help Telly calm down. He can try putting his hands on his belly and saying "Stop!" Then, he should breathe in and out slowly and tell himself to calm down. Telly does this and thinks he is now ready. He finds Baby Bear and tells him that he is sorry for calling him a show-off. He was jealous, wishing he had a parrot, too. Baby Bear accepts Telly's apology and explains that they are best friends and Telly can play with Ralphie any time he wants. This helps Telly not feel so jealous anymore. It really is a best friend's kind of day!
