Episode Summary

Leela is making a videotape of Sesame Street to send to her parents in India! First, she videotapes the Laundromat where she works and then Hooper's Store. There, Prairie Dawn suggests that Leela tape a talking letter "O," along with some oatmeal cookies. Just as Leela is about to tape, Cookie Monster comes in and eats all of the oatmeal cookies!

Leela sets off to find something else to show her parents, and spots Jack B. Nimble getting ready to jump over the candlestick! Someone needs to read the nursery rhyme, and Leela is the only one there who can read. As soon as Jack is about the jump, Leela quickly grabs the camera, but Jack crashes into her.

Leela then heads over to Big Bird and the Birdketeers who are singing the alphabet! Leela starts to tape again, but the cuckoo clock goes off and the meeting is over. Just as Leela is thinking that videotaping wasn't such a great idea after all, her friends show up. Leela is able to tape them and show her parents the most amazing part of Sesame Street… her friends. They are the real reason she loves living on Sesame Street.
