SCENE 1 Big Bird has to carry a lot of balloons over to Hooper's Store. He thinks that instead of bringing them one by one, he can put all the balloons into a nearby box. He leaves the box at Hooper's, not realizing that the box is bottomless. Bob and the kids corral the fallen balloons in another part of the steps, and when Big Bird comes back, he's surprised when he sees the balloons on the steps, so he puts them in another box, also without a bottom. Susan sees the balloons and gathers them in one place. When Big Bird comes back, Susan finally points out to him that she threw those boxes out. Big Bird then has an idea: he can put the balloons in a box with the lid on the bottom.
