Grover is given a package to send to Oscar the Grouch. Along the way, he encounters his various friends and neighbors, and eventually gives Oscar the package. It is a drawing of Dorothy drawn by Elmo, with spaghetti sauce on the picture. Included is a note from Elmo's mother: "Dear Oscar, Elmo drew this picture of Dorothy and spilled spaghetti sauce on it and wanted you to have it." Oscar likes the picture and wonders where Elmo is at, which leads to... Elmo's World! Elmo welcomes the viewers and reveals that he is thinking about Sesame Street today. The door plays the Sesame Street Theme and when Elmo opens it, his friends are sitting or hanging around 123 Sesame Street. Just then Oscar pops up and says to Elmo, "Hey! Get Lost!" A clip montage follows. In the DVD release, the montage is shortened and replaces the kazoo-version of the "Sesame Street Theme" with the standard Elmo's World montage music.
Dorothy has a question: "How does Cookie Monster eat a cookie?" Elmo decides to ask Mr. Noodle. Mr. Noodle attempts to demonstrate how Cookie Monster eats a cookie. He first eats the cookie in small bites and then tries to eat the cookie neatly with a fork and knife. Elmo tells him to think like a monster and Mr. Noodle eats the cookie messy. After Mr. Noodle finishes the cookie and wanted some more, a bunch of cookies suddenly fell on to him and Mr. Noodle began to eat them all.
