Episode 5024 - Dog Day Engineers
HBO Premiere: Saturday April 25, 2020

Zoe and Rosita help Nina dog sit but their arms get tired after continuously throwing the balls. They don't give up and keep thinking of a way to solve this problem. They figure out how to design a bike-powered ball-throwing machine they can pedal using their feet. They are two real engineers.

This episode features an all-new street story, a new Big Bird's Road Trip (Birmingham, Alabama), Abby's Amazing Adventures ("Rollercoaster Engineers") and Elmo the Musical ("Repair Monster the Musical").

I know they've done recycled scripts in the past, but the "Rocking Rollie" episode was only three years or so ago. Why not just repeat the episode instead of shooting a new thing to the same script?

Interesting that they kept the continuity of Zoe's broken arm; didn't expect that. Maybe it'll be like that the rest of the season?

This certainly was a rip-off of Rocking Rollie, down to Zoe speaking gibberish, and Nina fixing a leak and water getting caused by something else once the leak was fixed. Are Ken Scarbough's writing team running out of ideas already?

This isn't anything new under the sun. Back in the mid-2000s, a chicken mistaking Rocco for an egg and trying to hatch it was becoming a once-a-season thing.

I mean, sure they recycled plots a lot over the years, but now we live in an age of streaming when kids can watch whatever episodes they want, whenever they want. Seems like you would need to shake things up a bit more.

The fact that this season is keeping continuity, to a certain extent, is interesting though.

Wouldn't that also be a nod to the Telly's Cast storyline arc from the early 90's ?
