  • Oscar the Grouch is on top of the world, planning to have a rotten day and do lots of rotten things. However, a Muppet witch hears Oscar's plans and casts a spell over him by making a nose appear on his face. The only way Oscar can break the spell is by doing nice things.[1]
  • Song: "Hello, Scale," a film about measuring weight.
  • Ernie & BertBert complains when a big letter H appears on the TV screen, so Ernie turns off the set, unplugs it, and takes a bunch of H objects out of the TV (including a hat, a house and a hamster). When he plugs it back in, a big letter I appears on the screen.
