    Episode 4803 - Elmo's Nursery Rhyme
    HBO Premiere: Saturday December 2, 2017

    Mother Goose (Kate McKinnon) tries to write a nursery rhyme for Elmo, but she doesn't know anything about him. It's up to his friend Abby to show her some of the things that make Elmo special.

    This episode features an all-new street story and a new Elmo's World ("Nursery Rhymes").

    Kinda lame all around. Rushed street story that Kate McKinnon couldn't save, boring choice of inserts (including throwing in something originally meant for Youtube). Nice to get a little Telly and hear Jerry's Count again (they really should've shot more with him while they still had the chance).

    Why can't the letter of the day bits work in like the number ones do? They have no problem incorporating counting and the theme of the ep. into the same thing. "N is for Nursery Rhyme" doesn't do anything beyond that. What are other N words? I'm so sick of these segments. They can't have it both ways.

    Street story wasn't so bad, but I do feel like Kate McKinnon could have brought a little more to her Mother Goose performance - it seemed kind of phoned-in some of the time. Somehow, the cow jumping over the moon and landing on Telly seemed like a very, very subtle throwback to the Season 36 premiere, in which Telly tries to learn how to catch a ball, by, at one point, catching a cow who jumped over the moon. Seeing Telly was fun, but it's clear Marty can't quite broaden the emotional range of Telly's voice like he used to.

    Not much else to comment on, except why did Abby suddenly sing with a little bit of a southern twang in her "Head and Shoulders, Knees and Toes" song?

    Since I really love Kate McKinnon, I thought she did some funny stuff in the street story. Like clearing her throat loudly and saying her strike of inspiration feels like a stomach ache. I guess the Elmo version of Bingo is technically the first new Muppet insert in the half-hour era of Sesame Street. I wish they kept the bit explaining the bits of silence during the clapping parts. I thought Mr. Noodle's brother's fake sheep were funny.
