Drawing is the 16th episode of Elmo's World.

What is Elmo Thinking about Today?


Elmo has a crayon and scribbles on the screen. A video montage shows children drawing and finger painting.

Mr. Noodle

Dorothy has a decoration of a drawing of Elmo on an easel. She wants to know how other people draw. Mr. Noodle draws in the air with his finger, gets a crayon, draws in the air with the crayon, and gets a paper, and stands on the paper, continuing to draw in the air.
He bends down, draws around his feet on the paper, and does a somersault.

Dorothy Wants to Ask Someone Else

Kids show how they finger paint or draw.
Elmo draws a picture of a baby and wants the baby to keep the drawing.

Elmo Has a Question for You

Elmo asks the viewer to help him count how many drawings fit on a refrigerator.
After the fifth and final drawing was stuck to the refrigerator, a drawing of an elephant smashed the refrigerator down to the ground!



Elmo asks questions about what can draw and does not. Birthday cakes don't draw, but you draw on a birthday cake. Tables don't draw, but you can draw on a drawing table. Hats don't draw, but you can draw while wearing one. Bears don't draw, unless it's Baby Bear. Baby Bear appears to draw a person.



Elmo's friends Kurt, Sally, and Erica draw the same tree in three different media: marker, crayon and paint.



The Drawing Channel shows a daisy explaining how she can be anything, keeping her glasses and bow in every shape. Coming up next: "The Man Who Drew Too Much," followed by "The Nancy Drew Mysteries" with Drew Barrymore.



Elmo talks about three drawings of his on a refrigerator he also drew.

Tickle Me Land


Dorothy imagines Elmo in the pictures on his refrigerator, showing his head on animated drawings of a barnyard, a flying bird, and a cow jumping over the moon.

Elmo's Home Video


Elmo talks about the drawing he made of his parents hanging on the wall of his room.

The Drawing Song

The Drawing Song

A blue crayon writes "DRAW" on the side of the piano, and while Elmo sings "The Drawing Song," the blue crayon bounces in similar fashion as a "bouncing ball".


In the digitally remastered version, the two scenes between the Mr. Noodle scene and the quiz were cut.
