Ernie sits alone in the arbor when Hoots the Owl asks if he'd like to sing "Rubber Duckie." Ernie appears a little sad, but concedes that he'd sing just about anything. Snuffy comes along with a seemingly similar dilemma, which leads to their break-out into song. As Big Bird and Bert are not available to play that day, (Bert's reason being he felt sick while he and Ernie were flying a kite and had to go home, and Big Bird's reason being he went to visit Granny Bird), Ernie and Snuffy developed the "Best Friend Blues." Through song (backed by Hoots, a dog and Chip and Dip), they manage to realize that the two of them can play together.
