Oscar, Bert, Ernie, Cookie Monster and other members of the Sesame Street gang join Big Bird in a cross country adventure. Miss Finch, a meddling social worker, sends him off to Ocean View, Illinois, for the comforts of family life with his "own kind," the Dodos. But he is a disaster as a Dodo and, lonely and homesick, he soon sets off on foot for Sesame Street. Can his old friends find him before he runs "afowl" of trouble en route? Featuring guest stars Chevy Chase, Sandra Bernhard, John Candy, Dave Thomas, Joe Flaherty, and Waylon Jennings. Written by
