Symbols
(*) - sequence is shortened.

(?) - result not recorded

(^^) - time lapse between pressing sensor, results in beginning with the first seq. again.

Sequences
Begins in normal standing position

  • I - shakes, "you tickled elmo," waves arm up and down, bends forward, straightens up and sits down, "oh that tickles," lies back, rolls forward into sitting position, stands up "whew...again, again!"
  • II - "you did it again," waves arm up and down, bends forward, sits back, lies down, kicks legs, arm moves back, sits up, stands, "give elmo a break please."
  • III - shakes, "...tickles...," waves arm up and down, bends forward, sits, waves arm up and down (like his hand slapping his knee), rolls to the side, convulses, lies back, sits up, gradually convulses back into lying position, kicks legs, sits up, rolls to side, straightens, rolls to face to ground, slaps hand on ground, "elmo can't stop laughing," uses hand to push off ground, stands up.

Begins in the wrong position and cannot finish sequences

  • I* - (on side) shakes, "you tickled elmo," waves arm up and down, bends forward, straightens, enters sitting position, "oh that tickles," straightens, tries to get up.
  • II* - (on side) "you did it again," waves arm up and down, bends forward, enters siting position, straightens, tries to get up.
  • III* - (standing up) shakes, "...tickles...," waves arm up and down, bends forward, enters sitting position, waves arm up and down (like his hand slapping his knee), rolls to the side, convulses, straightens, enters sitting position, gradually convulses back into lying position, kicks legs, enters sitting position, straightens,"elmo can't stop-," stops, tries to get up.
  • III* - (on side) shakes, "...tickles...," waves arm up and down, bends forward, straightens, tries to get up.

Analysis

Elmo has 3 sequences which follow the pattern of (I, II, III, I, II, III...) unless outside factors disrupt this pattern.

Test 1

  • attempt 3, for this particular elmo, seq. III can result in falling on side, when he cannot get off his side in seq. III, it is shortened.
  • attempts 4-10, once on his side, this particular elmo cannot get up (but others can).
  • attempts 3, 6, 7, 8 and 10, when elmo is in the incorrect position for the seq. and/or he can't get up to move to the right position, the seq. is shortened.

Test 2

  • attempt 3, seq. III can result in falling on side, when he cannot get off his side in seq. III, it is shortened.
  • attempts 4-10, once on his side, he can't get up.
  • attempts 3 and 6-10, when elmo is in the incorrect position for the seq. and/or he can't get up to move to the right position, the seq. is shortened.

Test 3

  • attempts 2 and 6, when he can't get up, the seq. order restarts and that seq. is shortened.
  • attempts 4, 8, 11, 14, and 15, when elmo is in the incorrect position for the seq. and/or he can't get up to move to the right position, the seq. is shortened.
  • attempts 12 and 13, seq. order resets because of time lapse between pressing sensors.

Test 4

  • using only one sensor does not change the seq. order
  • attempt 3, when elmo is in the incorrect position for the seq. and/or he can't get up to move to the right position, the seq. is shortened.
