Episode Summary

A Sesame Street Nightly News Update comes in from Brian Williams: "No one is sharing on Sesame Street!" Elmo and Leela can't believe that it's true and decide to go see for themselves. First, Elmo asks Big Bird if he can give Radar a hug and Big Bird yells "Mine!" Then he asks Snuffy if he can see his balloon, and Snuffy yells "Mine!" too. It seems to be true!

Then they hear Maria, Luis and Gabi are about to share a family picnic. Oscar announces that they won't be sharing for long because Mine-itis is going around: it's a Grouch disease that makes you think everything is yours and you don't want to share. Even Brian Williams has caught it and takes Oscar's binoculars and anchovy fudge sundae! In order to get his stuff back, Oscar finally tells them that the way to cure Mine-itis is to get a Grouch to share with you. He reluctantly agrees to do this, and one by one people are cured. Everyone on Sesame Street is sharing again…and it's all thanks to Oscar.
