Episode 5004 - Getting Dressed, Not Stressed
HBO Premiere: Saturday December 7, 2019

This episode features an all-new street story, a new Big Bird's Road Trip ("Detroit, Michigan"), a new Abby's Amazing Adventures ("Fashion Designers") and a new Elmo's World ("Getting Dressed").

Not the most eventful story, but lots of neat puppetry stuff going on there. And David Rudman's jacket did a Scooterfist!

Plus, I'm glad to see a little bit of a spotlight given to Baby Bear (even if that ending scene was super abrupt).

Not much else to comment on (except a number segment, how nice), except the Road Trip bit felt awkward because that's clearly not Matt in the puppet.

Wow. What an incredibly disappointing episode. I guess snow on the street is still "too expensive," since literally the location we saw was the front of 123. And even so, the plot being more about Elmo not knowing how to dress as his talking jacket trying to guide him along? Snooze fest. I would have much prefered to see the Muppets engaging in actual snow day activities.

Yeah, it was nice to see Baby Bear again, but he sounds so tired.

The Road Trip segment was disappointing as well, it kind of felt rushed and thrown-together.

I suppose Abby's Amazing Adventures was interesting enough.

Seeing Baby Bear in the bookends was a nice surprise. I thought David's performance of the talking jacket was fun and I liked the song he and Elmo sang. My favorite part of the Road Trip bit was Big Bird asking if he could fit in the boys house. I liked hearing Leslie and Frankie voice the models in the Amazing Adventure bit.

A cute episode. I love Rudy, and it's always nice to see Julia. I really liked David Rudman as the jacket. Idk what it is, but I find almost every character he plays really charming. The song was pretty catchy. And speaking of David, yay Baby Bear was in this! I was actually gonna skip the cold open until I realized he was there.

EDIT: Actually, now that i think about it, Elmo's jacket reminded me a lot of Baby Bear in some ways
