Sesame Street Episode 4913 The Big Pretend Band

The Big Pretend Band

Mama Bear and the Monsters' jazz quartet captivate a small audience, including Elmo, Abby, Bert, and Ernie. Each of them becomes enamored with a different instrument during the encore solos. As Bert gets autographs, the others discuss their favorite instruments and pretend to play them. They decide to form a make-believe band, but Bert feels he needs to know how to play a real saxophone before he can pretend. Ernie takes him to his Uncle Ernisimo's music store for a lesson. Bert assumes Ernisimo is just Ernie in disguise, but he goes along and learns to play the saxophone. Confident in his skills, Bert joins the others for a concert, impressing everyone with his pretend saxophone solo. To their surprise, Uncle Ernisimo is real and not Ernie in disguise. He praises their performance and requests an encore, as the Big Pretend Band concludes their show with Bert now playing the pretend sousaphone.

Abby Cadabby leads the gang in a song to introduce the letter of the day - M.

Celebrity: To illustrate that M stands for "musician," self-proclaimed drum expert Grover teaches drumming to Questlove, who surpasses his teacher with ease.

Cookie Monster's Foodie Truck: The Foodie Truck receives a call from Zooey Deschanel, who orders some banana chips after doing a musical performance. Gonger claims bananas are perfect for music by singing the word "banana" to Rossini's overture from The Barber of Seville. The monsters are all out of bananas, save for the peels, and dart off to the banana farm to collect some more.

Cookie Monster and friends sing as they wait for the number of the day, which is how many cookies are being baked for him.
