Teams were given a set of jigsaw puzzle pieces. These pieces can be assembled into fifteen separate images.
Each is part of a still from an episode of Sesame Street’s “Monsterpiece Theater.”
The images can be ordered by the number of unmatched pegs left sticking out around their edges.
Indexing into the titles of the original works by the number of pieces in the associated puzzle gives the answer LOCH NESS MONSTER.
