(soft music) Hi there, it's me, Alan from Sesame Street, and you're listening to Goodnight, World, a sleepcast where your friends at Sesame Street and Headspace Studios help you get ready for bed. Good night, world. Good night, world. Good night, world. Good night, world. Good night, world. Good night, world. Good night, world. Tonight's episode is. Once Upon A Library. Hello, it's me, Alan from Sesame Street. I'm here babysitting some of my friends. You might know them. They're playing hide and seek together. We can hear them right now. I've got my eyes closed, little brother. Time to hide. That's Abby Cadabby. She's looking for her little brother, Rudy, in this hide and seek game. Okay, go, Abby. You can start counting now. That's Rudy. He's hiding for this round of the game. Okay, Rudy, you got 'til I count to 10 to hide. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10. Ready or not, here I come. Oh, I'm ready. So where do you think he's hiding, Abby? Hmm, I'm not sure, Rudy's really good at this game. But sometimes he likes to hide next to the bed! Sometimes he scooches down on the other side where I can't see him. Well, is he there? Nope. Where will you look now? Well. Sometimes he hides under the table in the kitchen. Yeah, that's it for sure. Follow me, Alan. (feet thudding) Any luck? Nah. What's the last place I look? Oh, I know. I'll peek behind the sofa next, I'll bet he's there. Then let's check it out. Let me guess, he's not there, right? No, not there either. That guess was my last one. Right. Bed, table, sofa. One, two, three. So now what? You can come out now, Rudy. I used up my three tries. I'm here, here, Abby! Alan, Rudy was hiding behind the living room curtains the whole time! Oh boy. Yeah, I thought you were going to look there, but then you didn't look there. You won that one, Rudy. Hooray! I won! Is it time, Abby? Can we do it? Do what? When one of us wins, because no one found us, well, then both of us do. The victory wiggle. The victory wiggle. It's like a victory dance, but quieter, and more wiggly. Oh, that's a cool rule. It helps get Rudy's wiggles out. Rudy has a lot of wiggles. Rudy, it's time, let's do it. You too, if you want, Alan. Babysitters are allowed a victory wiggle too. Oh, yay! Let's victory wiggle! (bouncy music) I'm wiggling my fairy wings. Oh, oh, oh, I'm doing the monster wiggle. Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle. And giggle. Wiggly my fingers. Oh, this is fun. Wiggly my nose now too. Oh, that's a good wiggle, Alan. And all done. Okay. Now it's your turn, Abby. You hide now. (soft music) Oh, sorry, Rudy, sounds like hide and seek time is over. How come, Alan? That timer tells me it's naptime now. I...
