SCENE 1 Herry Monster tries to get the attention of Gordon, Luis and Susan by lifting a barbell, but they’re busy, and besides, they’ve seen him do that already. He tries lifting the 123 building, but fails. He breaks down in tears, thinking no one will like him if he can’t lift heavy things. Luis and Susan reassure him that he would be liked even if he could only lift a feather. Gordon arrives, having just fixed a tricycle, and Herry gives him the same speech.
