Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 In the early hours of the morning, Big Bird greets the viewer and tells them his job today is to make sure things are quiet for everyone who's still asleep. Just then, milk delivery person Millie (Rita Moreno, reprising her role from The Electric Company) appears and wonders what's going on. Big Bird tells her what's going on and she thinks they'll need some help. As usual, she loudly calls out, "Hey, you guys!," disturbing and waking up many of the neighbors. She does this again and again, even after producing a "QUIET" sign for them to read instead. Once everyone is awake and angry, Millie realizes she's in the wrong show and splits.
