SCENE 1 Big Bird has sent away 18 boxtops and has received a disguise (large sunglasses and a fake beard and mustache) he hopes to fool his friends with. He strolls over to the 123 Sesame Street stoop, where David and Maria are hanging out. He does a character voice, asking the strangers how to get to Sesame Street. Of course, the two immediately see right through his disguise. They point out that, as his friends, they'd recognize him anywhere, especially given the unique features of an eight foot bird. He understands the point - next time, he needs to use a longer beard.
