Episode Summary

When Abby keeps winning at Hot Potato, Elmo gets frustrated and starts taking the game too seriously. Now it's no fun for anyone. Abby tells Elmo that she doesn't want to play anymore. Still upset about losing, Elmo convinces Telly to help him improve his skills.

After some intense training, Elmo feels ready to try his hand at Hot Potato again. This time, he beats Abby every round…and he can't stop bragging about how good he is at the game. This isn't fun for Abby either! She's through playing with Elmo. But Elmo's not done showing off.

Now he challenges Leela to Hot Potato. Leela quickly realizes what the problem is. With her help, Elmo learns what it means to be a good sport, and the next time he sees Abby he shows that he knows how to be one, too!
