Episode Summary

Real estate agent Freddy Flapman is trying to get Big Bird to migrate to a warmer habitat. He takes Big Bird to the beach, but Big Bird doesn't want to live there. Next they visit a swamp, but Big Bird's not feeling it. Then they're transported to a beautiful rainforest, which Big Bird loves—it's warm and colorful, with amazing birds and other animals.

As Big Bird packs up and waves good bye to all his Sesame Street friends, his friends remind him what he would miss if he migrated to the rainforest. He can't leave Sesame Street—this is where his friends are! Luckily, Big Bird decides to stay put.

As your child learns about habitats, she'll remember, too, that there's no place like home!
