Episode Summary

Telly has a book everyone wants to read, How to be a Knight for a Day. He, Abby and Elmo check it out and learn the ropes: first, they have to wear a suit of shining armor. Clank! Clank! Clank! Next, they must sing a knight song, "We Are Three Knights So Merry."

When it's time for a knightly quest, they hear a whimpering letter "Y." "Y" tells them he's unsure of his purpose in life, because he can't think of any words that begin with "Y." That's it—that will be their quest. After much searching, they find a hairy cow called a yak, and also think of yogurt and yo-yo. "Y" is so grateful, and Elmo, Abby and Telly sing the knight song and cheer in delight!

Together with your brave little knight, try this quest with any letter of the alphabet.
