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. Elmo to the moon. Well hello, I'm so glad you're here. This is Alan, your friend from Sesame Street, with another good friend of yours. Hello, hello, hello. Elmo! Yeah, yeah, yeah. Elmo is so happy that his good friend Alan is babysitting tonight. Especially tonight. Why is that, Elmo? Because today during story time at the library, Elmo heard one all about his favorite comic book hero, Galactic Stan! Oh, I know about him. I've read some of his adventures too. They're very exciting. He's an astronaut, right? That's right, Alan. Galactic Stan explores outer space! Astronauts find out about stars and planets, like Mars. Mars, Alan, even the moon! That sounds amazing. So, Elmo was wondering, well. Yes? Before Elmo gets ready for bedtime, maybe Alan could read Elmo another story about Galactic Stan, please. Well, I'd love to Elmo, but I don't see any Galactic Stan comic books here in your apartment. Oh, right. Elmo left his Galactic Stan books at Zoe's house, for her to read. So Elmo guesses he won't be hearing an outer space adventure tonight, huh? Oh, sure you can. Huh? We could tell a story together about an adventure in space. One that we invent ourselves. We could have a story about astronaut Abby, or astronaut Big Bird, or. Astronaut Elmo! Oh, Alan, could Elmo's story be about Elmo? Yes, it sure can. Oh, astronaut Elmo can't wait for his outer space adventure! Okay then. How about we plop down here on the sofa, and I'll start us off. Tonight, our story is all about astronaut Elmo's imaginary journey into space. (drifty music) Once upon a time on Sesame Street, Elmo was just about ready for bed, wearing his most favorite fuzzy purple pajamas, all covered in stars. He went to his window to look at the moon, and Elmo was so surprised by what he saw. What, Alan? What was it? Parked right there on Sesame Street, right outside Hooper's Store was a great big red spaceship. How 'bout what? Elmo didn't know where the spaceship had come from, but he knew somehow that it was meant just for him. Sure, anything can happen in an imaginary story. So after asking his mommy and daddy if it was okay to go on an adventure in space, Elmo changed out of his fuzzy purple pajamas into a spacesuit. Astronaut Elmo put on his space boots. Then he ran right into that red spaceship. He closed the big red door. And Elmo buckled in nice and safe with his seatbelt. Countdown ready? Astronaut Elmo ready for takeoff! Let's start it now. 10, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four,...
