Episode 123 - Big Bird Draws Letter R's
HBO Max Premiere: Wednesday May 27, 2020

Big Bird cannot remember how to write a lowercase "r". Luckily, a cute letter "r" drops onto his easel! Big Bird decides they will be friends after "r" kisses his beak! Little "r" does tricks, like roll over. "R" is so terrific, Big Bird draws its picture. When Big Bird wants to introduce "r" to Mr. Hooper and Gordon, little "r" has disappeared. They do not believe Big Bird and think he is imagining it. Alone again, Big Bird calls for little "r", who bounces back, this time with an uppercase "R"! Big Bird gets to practice drawing uppercase "R" now. After he draws a big "R", the letters bounce away. Mr. Hooper and Gordon visit Big Bird and do not believe two letter Rs exist. Luckily, big and little "r" bounce back. The adults realize the Rs do exist and not only in Big Bird's imagination!

I did see the episode, but as part of the first iTunes package. At least there were no edits on the iTunes version.

Haven't seen this version yet (don't have the Max), but suspect something was cut so they could make room for the added credit crawl.
