"Legs" is plural, and to be grammatically correct, the question should be "Where are Elmo's legs?" However, "where's" (rather than "where is") has definitely crept into the vernacular when asking about either singular or plural nouns.

    I think "Where is [plural noun]?" is a lot less accepted than "Where's [plural noun]?" – Nicole Mar 10 '15 at 21:20
