Episode Summary

Telly becomes a contestant on his favorite game show "Hurry Up! You're running Out of Time!" He has to say the alphabet in one minute while Denny the Distracter plays instruments, sings, and pulls whistles all around him, making it hard for Telly to think about what he's supposed to be thinking about. On his first try, Telly is distracted and runs out of time. He is given a second chance and can pick someone to help him.

Telly gets Chris to help him, but Denny distracts both of them and they run out of time again. Telly and Chris are given a third and final chance. Telly feels frustrated but Chris says that if they work as a team they can win. Telly focuses on Chris and doesn't let Denny the Distracter interfere. They win! As a prize, Telly just wants to say the alphabet with his buddy Chris and to have all the time they want to do it. Everyone joins in as they sing the Alphabet song in as much time as they want.
