Sesame Street Episode 4234
Rock Band
Season 41
Michael McKean, Anna Faris and Soichi Noguchi visit Sesame Street.

The episode begins with Elmo and Abby assisting Chris and Alan in sorting their shipment of food. Suddenly, a rocker named Virgil von Vivaldi (played by Michael McKean) appears, having forgotten his name and the type of band he wants to create. After some discussion, Virgil recalls that he wants to form a band made out of rocks. Elmo and Abby set off to find rocks for Virgil's band.

Abby returns with a small rock, which Virgil identifies as a pebble. Although it's too small to be the lead singer, Virgil assigns it to play the tambourine. Elmo brings a large rock, which is also unsuitable for the lead singer role but is perfect for playing the gong.

Zoe joins the quest, offering her pet rock Rocco for the band. Virgil explains that Rocco is a type of rock called "basalt" due to its many holes, indicating it came from a volcano. Rocco is given the role of bass player in the band.

Elmo, Abby, and Zoe bring three more rocks to Virgil. Elmo's limestone rock is deemed too fossil-like for the lead singer and is assigned to play the lute. Zoe's obsidian rock is chosen to play the oboe, while Abby's marble rock is given the role of playing the mandolin.

Feeling discouraged about not finding a lead singer, Virgil considers giving up. Abby decides to use magic to create a rock, but accidentally turns Chris into a large rock with a gem-like voice instead. Virgil and the others observe that Chris is a gem and a perfect lead singer. However, Chris wants to be changed back to normal to continue working. After Chris is returned to normal, Virgil asks Abby to turn him into a gem so he can lead his rock band. Once transformed, they all rock out together.
