| ||What's the Word on the STREET? Inflate|
| ||Alan & Chris, while doing some water-work, welcome the viewer to a quiet, calm day on Sesame Street. Suddenly, the serenity is broken by a series of GROUCHES & musicians loudly scrambling by. All of a sudden, OSCAR THE GROUCH pops up, telling them that today’s the GROUCH holiday, TRASHgiving, which Alan & Chris aren’t familiar with. Some more GROUCHES appear, explaining some of the traditions & they sing a TRASHgiving Carol song (to the tune of "Over the River & Through the Woods".). Gordon arrives to celebrate too, all dressed up like a GROUCH in a TRASH CAN, claiming to celebrate all holidays. OSCAR mentions he’s in charge of the big TRASHgiving Day Parade, which is sponsored by Mr. Disgracey (Richard Kind) of Disgracey's Disgusting Department Store. Mr. Disgracey is looking forward to a horrible parade, or else OSCAR will be fired.|
| ||The parade begins with Scabby & Scubby the Clowns, following by the marching band, who plays the music too nicely. Mr. Disgracey is not pleased. Chris points out that water may help him; the sound in the horns will move differently through water than it does through air. Chris sprays his hose into the instruments & the musicians begin to play, resulting in a horrible noise & spraying the water on Chris & Alan. Mr. Disgracey is impressed.|
| ||Next up is the Maysour float, where Bob portrays Miles Can't-Standish. OSCAR stops it, appalled by the colorful float they have. Chris & Alan thinks water can fix this issue too. He has Chris spray the hose at the float, where the flowers droop & the paint runs, making a beautiful mess. Mr. Disgracey is again pleased.|
| ||The final part of the parade is the giant balloon of Stenchy the Stinkbug, the smelliest cartoon character. However, OSCAR is not pleased that the balloon is floating & deflates it immediately. Chris & Alan & Chris show how water can help help himonce more: they fill the deflated balloon with water, making it heavy & impossible to fly. Mr. Disgracey believes this is the worst parade ever, naturally giving OSCAR a promotion. OSCAR thinks the parade was almost perfect, until Chris & Alan become drenched when the balloon topples over & pops. Chris & Chris & Alan both decide to take TRASHgiving Day off next year.|
