Elmo asks if he can be a Sesame Street Cheerleader too, and they set of in search of someone to cheer for.

Wednesday, Feb. 5: “Jack’s Big Jump” -- Jack Be Nimble tries to jump over eight candlesticks, but he knocks them over and falls—then runs away and hides. Now he's having trouble jumping. Has he lost his jump? Baby Bear and Telly find someone to help him—a kangaroo!

Friday, Feb. 7: “Pogo Game” -- Telly is practicing for the Pogo Games. He really wants to win the Pogo Gold but doesn’t think he’s good enough.
