While Maria fixes the float, Gabi prepared the costumes. Elmo and Rosita can't decide which costume to wear, but finally settle on bugs. Oscar is dragged into guessing game and accidentally answers correctly.
The children and Elmo and Rosita practice the conga. Elmo adds a "Wiggle-wiggle" into the dance, and after some debate, the whole group decided to wiggle too.
Finally, Maria manages to fix the float, but Elmo accidentally breaks the float again. Elmo promises to get a new float, somewhere.
While all the kids are sad because they don't have a float anymore, Elmo brings a pineapple, saying that a fairy godmother would turn the pineapple into a float, just like Cinderella's carriage. Elmo calls for a fairy godmother, at which point Oscar arrives in the Sloppy Jalopy. He refuses to help by lending the car for the carnival, but Gabi points out that the car would be decorated "with great looking trash". Oscar finally relents and allows his car to be used as a float.
Maria dresses as a Queen Bee, and announced the beginning of the carnival.
The objective is to locate the Skull(s) on the map and to maintain possession of it for the longest period of time possible. The default settings allow the game to be a free for all with one Skull on the map, which you need to have possession of for two minutes in order to win. This game can be played as a Rumble Game or a Team Game where the highest score of the lone player (Free-For-All), or on a team's accumulative score, chooses the victor(s). Normally, a player who has the Oddball is the immediate target for the other players, which is what makes Oddball an extremely fast paced and fun game-type.
While a player has possession of the Oddball, they cannot wield their weapons or throw grenades. However, they can still melee opponents with the Skull, which normally inflicts massive damage. The settings for the game can also be altered to make it more interesting. For example, the player with the Oddball can go invisible or can be slowed down. The number of Oddballs on the map can also be changed. Oddball in Halo 3 is the same and looks just like the Skulls of Halo 2.
