    Number 113 is going to be the last outline I post for a while. I am finishing up school, and need to focus on my studies for the next three to four months. But I shall try to return in the summer with more outlines. Enjoy this one, where the cast tries to cheer up an angry Herry Monster. Plus, Bad Bart surprises Marshall Earp, Ernie and Cookie Monster have an identity crisis, and a Muppet choir sings "I'm So Lonely."

    Sesame Street Old School Outline 113

    Season 9: Herry Monster can’t be cheered up

    Sponsors: S, V, 10

    Scene 1: Bob says good morning to the viewer and notices Herry Monster coming down the street. When he addresses Herry good morning, Herry simply frowns and grunts. As Herry passes by Hooper’s Store, David offers him a lollipop, but Herry refuses it and tells David off. When Susan and Big Bird greet Herry, he sneers at them. Everyone agrees that Herry Monster is in a rotten mood!

    Cartoon: A man slips on his daughter’s roller skate and falls. The girl says that her dad is angry, but he still loves her!

    Muppets: Ernie and Cookie Monster are unable to tell each other apart because they both have wiggly fingers, large mouths, funny laughs, and love cookies. A Green Anything Muppet tells them how they’re different, making them feel better.

    Scene 5: Herry Monster sits by Oscar’s can, still seething. As he reflects on the events of the day, he realizes how nasty he’s been. Herry wants to talk to someone, but he looks around and nobody is on Sesame Street. He begins to feel very lonely.

I’ve never wanted to talk with you as much as I do now!” Herry opens up about his bad day: when he woke up, he stubbed his toe on his rocking horse. Then he fell into a mud puddle outside his house. Then the ice cream man was out of chocolate ice cream! But he got angry with everyone when they tried to help him; and now none of them are here. Oscar advises Herry to scream: “Let it all out, kid! Immerse yourself in anger and grouchiness!” After letting out a thunderous roar, Herry is no longer angry! He thanks Oscar, who denies having helped him.

Maria hears smashing noises from inside, and the lights go out abruptly. When the Grouches re-emerge, Maria points out that electricians are supposed to repair lights, not wreck them! Electrician: “Listen, sister! Grouch electricians are SUPPOSED to wreck the lights!” Oscar: “Yeah! Plus, with broken lights, I won’t be able to see a thing inside my can…just how I like it!” Oscar goes back into his can and immediately crashes into various household items.

Tending the store is a chore!” When David gets mad, Howie says, “Keeper gets sore over store lore! Heard it all before!” The adults finally tell Howie that David is simply taking a break and will be back in five minutes. Headline Howie thanks him for clearing the confusion, and creates one last headline: “Hooper’s Store is alive and will thrive! Back in five.” After Howie leaves Maria asks, “What was that all about?” David remarks, “I don’t know, but that was a lot of jive…”
