Episode Summary

Abby, Elmo, and Telly are in the arbor when Big A comes in looking for members to join the A Team, a group that helps people by solving problems using letter A words. Abby, Elmo, and Telly join, and proudly wear the letter A on their chests. Baby Bear is the first one who has a problem: he needs help getting his sister Curly Bear to take a nap. The A Team brings in an astronaut reciting the alphabet while doing aerobics to help her fall asleep. It works! Curly Bear falls asleep.

Then Gina tries to reach an envelope that blew into a tree. The A Team brings in animals with apricot allergies that have apricots tied to their ankles. Their sneezes blow the envelope back down! Then Oscar is aggravated and angry that some pigs are playing by his trash can. The A Team tries to distract them by bringing in Alan wearing an afro being chased by an alligator with an attitude, but that doesn't work.

Big A wants to try a new plan: the letter A can make different sounds. The A Team brings in an ape dressed as an angel singing about acorns. That plan doesn't work either. Finally, Alan suggests that they try asking the pigs to move their game. It works! This calls for "A" celebration!
