Picture Segment Description
SCENE 1 David and Luis play two different kinds of music at the same time, starting a music feud. Maria thinks it's a silly fight, but Oscar is delighted. David and Luis apologize to each other and decide to keep their music down, which disappoints Oscar.
SCENE 2 David carries out a full garbage bag. The bag splits open, making it empty.
SCENE 3 Oscar receives a letter from the Disagreeable Order of Grouches (D.O.G.), notifying him that he's won the Grouch of the Year Award. He observes the bad day that David is having, which makes him very happy. When the Grouch judge overhears Oscar saying that he has a glow in his heart, a smile on his lips and a good warm feeling inside, he assumes Oscar isn't the Grouch he was looking for, and looks elsewhere.
SCENE 4 The Grouch judge encounters David in Hooper's Store, thinking him to be the Grouch of the Year Award recipient. He offers David a year's supply of dirty socks, then a stack of torn newspapers, angering David even further. Maria giggles at the situation, and soon, so does David. The Grouch judge is confused, until Oscar sets him straight by going off on a tirade about David, the judge, and the contest. The judge, admitting his mistake, gives Oscar the award.
SCENE 5 Luis plays a “Three of These Things” game: three full glasses of milk and one empty glass.
SCENE 6 In a series of quickies, Luis, David, and a kid make mistakes. Big Bird sings “Everyone Makes Mistakes”.
SCENE 7 The sponsors are announced.
