Episode 5023 - Zoe Breaks Her Arm
HBO Premiere: Saturday April 18, 2020

Zoe sets off at a running start for her ballet jump but she slips and breaks her arm. When Zoey returns from the doctor, she still wants to play but she can't find anything fun to do. Charlie, Rosita, and Elmo come up with the idea of changing the words to the song "If You're Happy and You Know It," so Zoe can be part of it too, even with a broken arm. (Guest: Misty Copeland).

This episode features an all-new street story, a new Big Bird's Road Trip (Red Lodge, Montana), Misty Copeland teaches about dance, a new Abby's Amazing Adventures ("Robot Builders") and Elmo's World ("Skin").

Another one of those episodes I'm sure Shane would describe as being rather bland and forgettable.

Jen's Zoe is still gradually improving, I will say. And I feel like the two monkeys who threw their banana peels on the sidewalk were meant to be subtle nods to Joey and Davey (at least one of them was clearly performed by David). The cold open/teaser with Rudy freaking out over his elbow being missing because his arm was straightened was amusing, though.

I was audibly upset at how the accident unfolded. I liked the monkeys, and then when they threw the banana peels, I'm like "Crap, I have to hate them now." It could've also been further prevented if Alan didn't have to monologue to the viewer about littering. Sheesh.

I mean, I really like Alan and all, he's a really nice guy, and he's been a great addition to the show, but he needs better direction. I agree about the monologue, that was actually rather cringeworthy to watch.

So Zoe now only wears her tutu while doing ballet? Makes sense. I liked the 2 monkeys played by David and Stephanie. I liked the bit with Misty Copeland and Elmo, especially Elmo flying in the air.
