SCENE 1 Big Bird has been told to wake up Luis in the Fix-It Shop, but he's busy practicing bird calls, so he asks Herry Monster to do it. Just before Herry knocks on the door, he realizes his strength could accidentally put a hole in the door. He considers other items he could use to knock with a leaf, which is too light, then a tomato (which could make a mess). Herry leans agains the door and sobs that he's failed. This wakes up Luis, who thanks Herry for his helpfulness. Herry goes to tell Big Bird about what he's done, knocking his front door off the hinges in the process.
