    Episode 4728 - Bert and Ernie Make a Movie
    HBO Premiere: Saturday July 15, 2017

    Ernie and Elmo help Bert tap into his imagination as he acts out different scenes for a movie.

    This episode features a street story from Season 44, a new Bert and Ernie's Great Adventures ("Donnie Quixote") and a new Elmo's World ("Books").

    Even though E&B's presence has diminished, when they do get the spotlight, they get a lot of it. Not only with the street story and new open and closings, but the return of "Bert and Ernie's Great Adventures," an unaired one even!

    The animation in that storytelling 'toon was very good. But the tacked on letter thing at the end...

    The bookends with Elmo and Ernie were fun. It was great to see a new episode of Bert and Ernie's Great Adventures. Bert's bit in the new EW is the most dialogue any Muppet other than Elmo has had on the new EW so far.

    If my aunt and uncle have HBO at their house, because I'm house and petsitting for them this weekend.

    Well, do you have HBO subchannels or just HBO? Because HBO Family will show it on Monday at 8 AM.

    I have subchannels as well, but I could probably just as easily catch up On Demand, I just need to remember to do that.

    Well . . . it was fun to see Ernie and Bert in a street story again, and while I like the idea of the concept of them trying to make a movie, I felt the execution of the overall story was rushed and repetitive. It was amusing to see how Bert was apparently so inexperienced at imagination that he didn't know how to pretend to be a cowboy (which I found odd, given it was heavily implied in an old school insert that he likes playing cowboy) or a pirate. Nice little mythology gag of Elmo using his old EW camcorder to film the movie, but modifying it to make it look more like a more contemporary handycam.
