Bob and the other adults attempt to explain Mr. Hooper's death to Big Bird, who doesn't understand why the candy-store owner is no longer on Sesame Street. In other highlights, Ernie and the other Muppets stage a pageant about feelings; Madeline Kahn performs a duet with Grover about echoes; Kermit the Frog, in the role of a reporter, illustrates the use of clues to find out which suitor a princess has chosen as her prince; and Mr. and Mrs. Wilson bring home their new baby. Featured letters and numbers are J, M, and 5.
