Episode Summary

Superhero powers activate! When Telly, Abby, and Elmo read Telly's favorite comic book, "The Furry Four," they decide to transform themselves into characters from the book. Elmo is the Furry Flash, Abby is the Furry Tornado, and Telly is Mr. Furry!

They just need to find one more member to be Furry Muscles, so the superheroes begin their furry mission to find one more. First, they run into Rosita and Zoe and realize they could be the "The Furry Five", but Rosita and Zoe already have plans to plant flowers in the garden with Maria. The mission continues.

They come across a chicken, but he flies away in his cape. Then, a squirrel agrees to become the fourth member…but he hurts his back trying to lift a mailbox while activating his super, furry power. Oops.

Finally, they find Chris sweeping outside Mr. Hooper's Store. It turns out that he would love to be Furry Muscles. Yay—one more! Their first mission as "The Furry Four" is a success.
