Snuffy wants spaghetti before his nap, so Big Bird calls Hooper's Store and orders a ‘’big’’ serving of spaghetti. Mr. Hooper delivers it, but Snuffy finishes it quickly and wants more. Big Bird calls Hooper’s again and orders a ‘’bigger’’ serving (in a pot), then finally the ‘’biggest’’ serving in a laundry basket. Mr. Hooper is shocked to see that the spaghetti has disappeared so quickly, but Big Bird shushes him, since little Snuffy is sleeping soundly.
