Episode Summary

Elmo knows his ABC's so well that he has been chosen to play "The Amazing Alphabet Race," a game show hosted by Amazing Al. In order to play, Elmo has to find all the letters of the alphabet before a clucking chicken tap dances his way to a gong!

Elmo discovers that there are letters all around him! He finds an "A" in "SESAME STREET," a "B" in "BUS STOP" and a "C" in "SCRAM." He heads to Hooper's to look for a "D," "E," and "F," but it's not open. This isn't a problem since Elmo finds some letters he needs in the "CLOSED" sign on the door. Telly joins in and they find three "Fs" in "FREE COFFEE," a "G" on Telly's pogo stick, and an "H" in "HOOPER'S". Next they find "J," "K," and "L" in Abby's "Jack and Jill" book.

They continue working against the cluck, finding letters in signs around the street. It is not until they need "W," "X," "Y," and "Z" that Elmo and Telly notice the ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ delivery man's package which has all the letters they need. They point to the remaining letters just in time and win the game!
