Episode Summary

Telly, Elmo, and Rosita are playing Shape-O-Bots, robots that transform into shapes to help people.

Andy, a guy in need of help, wants a stop sign to keep people from crashing into him. Telly tries to turn into an octagon, but changes into a triangle instead. Rosita's successful, though, and soon Andy's back, this time in need of a pentagon: he's a baseball coach and needs a home plate. Once again, Telly changes into a triangle, but Elmo's on the job and delivers.

Now Andy needs a rhombus for the King of Rhombuses, who is missing his. Telly is once again all triangles, all the time, but Rosita notices that a rhombus is actually two triangles stuck together. Since Telly hit his Shape-o-Bot button one time to become a triangle, will hitting it two times turn him into a rhombus? Yes—hooray for the Shape-o-Bots!
