# Welcome to The Furchester Hotel. #
Oh, that's great. Just one moment.
-Mum, Dad, it's The Great Featherinni.
-He says he's on his way.
-Oh, that's wonderful.
When will he be here?
I am here -
The Great Featherinni.
We welcome you with furry arms.
Oh, did you see that?
Oh, boy, this is heavy.
And this is my magician's assistant,
I could have appeared in a big puff of smoke too, but no -
I've got to lug in this big, heavy box.
At least I can welcome you with furry arms without you disappearing.
-Oh, come here.
-Ooh, ooh - that IS furry!
Oh, oh, The Great Featherinni,
-what's in the box?
I'm so glad you asked, young monster.
The box is empty.
But if I wave my watch magic wand and say the magic words -
SHRIEKS OF DELIGHT
Hey, that's my magician's hat!
What? You're the magician's assistant, Arthur.
You don't need a hat.
Oh, for me?
Oh, how lovely.
Hey, you know, I can show you a trick too.
-Show us, Arthur. Let's see.
No, no, no, Arthur, you're not ready to do magic on your own yet.
But let me show you my next trick.
-What is it?
I, The Great Featherinni, will make my assistant Arthur...
All I ever do is disappear.
GASPS AND LAUGHTER
So, is The Great Featherinni going to make Arthur reappear?
Yes, I will.
Join in with the magic words and say...
Where's Arthur gone?
Well, I don't know.
Arthur can't really have disappeared. It's just a trick.
I can't make do my truly amazing magic show without an assistant!
Oh, don't worry - the Furchesters will find Arthur,
-if my name's not Furgus Filip Fuzz the third.
Come on, Elmo, we can look in the dining room.
I'll look in the garden.
And we can try the ballroom, Great Featherinni.
OK, OK. Coming.
Arthur, dear, where are...?
Arthur's definitely not in the ballroom.
MUSIC AND LAUGHTER
-Arthur, where are you?
-Under here? Nope.
-Where is he?
Wait a minute. Elmo hears crunching!
Excuse Elmo. Hi.
-Is that you?
Come on, Phoebe, let's go.
Oh, it is! It is you, Arthur.
Yeah, how come you didn't reappear?
I don't know. I was...
-I was feeling upset.
-Why were you upset?
Yeah, Elmo thinks being a magician's assistant must be lots of fun.
Because I don't want to be a magician's assistant.
I want to be a magician!
-That was amazing!
-Thank you, thank you. You see?
I want to amaze the audience with MY magic tricks too.
But The Great Featherinni never lets me do any.
He says I'm not ready.
Oh! Phoebe, Elmo, you found Arthur!
We've been looking everywhere for you.
-Come on, nearly time for the show.
-I'm sorry, Ms Furchester,
-but I will not be going back to The Great Featherinni.
Mum, he wants to do his own magic show.
Yeah, Arthur's really good at magic tricks.
But you have to go back.
The Great Featherinni can't do the show without you.
I'm sorry, but my mind is made up.
I am not going to be Featherinni's assistant any more.
This is a big problem.
DING DING DING
# It's more than just a slip up or a mess-up or a mishap
# A Furchester catastrophe we need to fix it fast-rophe

# A Furchester catastrophe The problem is so bad-strophe

Well, that's that.
We must have looked everywhere.
I can't do my amazing magic show without Arthur.
I'll have to cancel the show.
What? But you can't cancel the show.
Look, we can solve this problem.
Let's put our furry and feathery heads together and think.
What if we find you a new assistant?
Me can be Featherinni assistant.
You, Cookie Monster?
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. Here, me show you.
The Great Cookie Monsterinni will now make...
this cookie disappear.
Thank you, Cookie Monster,
but I don't really do many disappearing cookie tricks.
Oh, well, that OK.
do them meself.
You know, I'll never find an assistant as wonderful as Arthur.
-'Prepare to be amazed.'
Oh, that's Arthur!
Nothing in my hands.
Oh, that was an amazing trick, Arthur.
You really are a great magician.
Well, thank you, Featherinni.
That's why I didn't want to be an assistant any more -
because I want to be a great magician...
Just like you.
Oh, gee, I understand.
You know, I'm sure going to miss doing our little act together.
Yeah. And you know what?
I'm going to miss doing our show too.
That gives me a monster idea.
Oh, what is it?
You could be a magical double act!
-A double act?
Yes, you know, like a magical act
with two magicians.
-That would be a great idea!
-Yeah, I love that!
I don't want to be a party pooper,
but if they're both magicians who's going to be their assistants?
Wait a minute. Elmo has an idea too.
Elmo and Phoebe can be your assistants!
What you think, Arthur?
Well, I think it Elmo and Phoebe would be excellent assistants.
Well, in that case, the show can go on!
And now, for our first magic trick,
The Great Featherinni...
And the amazing little Arthur...
..would like to introduce our new assistants,
Elmo and Phoebe!
Everybody, say the magic words.
-Thank you, thank you.
And now we will make them disappear.
Oh, well, that's one way of doing it!

The Furchesters are awaiting the arrival of the star of their magic show, the Great Featherini, and in a poof of smoke he arrives. The Furchesters can't believe their eyes, the Great Featherini is even greater than they thought. Sadly they don't spot his assistant, Arthur, pushing a large box through the doors and complaining about how he could be a great magician too. Phoebe has a monster idea. They can become a magic double act!
