Planning Ahead
  • Mr. Hooper tells Oscar that he had a lot of trash in the basement of his store. He asks if Oscar will take care of it for him. Oscar is delighted -- and when Mr. Hooper leaves, Oscar spreads the junk all over the store as if he were a decorator. He thinks the store looks great now! When Mr. Hooper returns, he insists that Oscar take all the trash away, and put it in his trash can. Again, Oscar is delighted.

  • Kermit's Lectures: Cookie Monster helps Kermit to demonstrate 'through.' Originally, Kermit plans for Cookie Monster to run through a sheet of tissue paper in a frame, but Cookie stops short.
