SCENE 1 It's a windy day today on Sesame Street. Gordon spots some moving leaves, Mr. Hooper places weights on his newspapers so they don't blow away, Bob claims to have been blown away three blocks down, and Susan tries to keep her hat on her head. By sheer coincidence, the newspaper also says it's supposed to be windy today.
