Episode Summary

Legend has it that the Golden Triangle of Destiny is on Sesame Street and Minnesota Mel is there on an adventure to find it. It is the rarest, most beautiful triangle in the whole world.

Unfortunately, Minnesota Mel is unable to finish his search. But since Telly is a triangle lover, he'll try to help. A giant boulder gives Texas Telly and Chris the first clue, which is to look under something. They find a shape with five sides. Wyoming Walt appears and tells them that they found his Golden Pentagon of Destiny! Disappointed, Texas Telly and Chris receive another clue from a friendly snake: "laundromat". At the laundromat, Murray and Leela help Texas Telly look under more things. They find a shape with eight sides, and Virginia Virginia comes in and tells them that they found her Golden Octagon of Destiny!

Texas Telly is ready to give up when he feels a pointy object under his chair cushion. It's a shape with three sides and three angles: the Golden Triangle of Destiny! Minnesota Mel returns and they decide that they should put the Triangle in the Museum of Triangular History so everyone can see it. And so ends the adventure of Minnesota Mel and Texas Telly and the Golden Triangle of Destiny.
