SCENE 1 Mr. Hooper accuses Oscar of littering all over Sesame Street, but he later apologizes when Oscar tells him the story of how the Street actually got dirty: David gave him a bag of rusty cans, then spilled them as he rushed over to the phone; Maria gave him a box of dirt which broke at the bottom, then rushed off to fetch a shovel; Gordon left his newspapers and trash by Oscar’s can while he tended to his roast in the oven. Back in the present, when Maria and Gordon and David arrive to clean up their messes, Mr. Hooper realizes his assumption was wrong.
