SCENE 1 Grover's kite is stuck in a tree and he can't get it down. While brainstorming with Big Bird, they come up with the idea of standing on each other's shoulders. Big Bird volunteers to get on Grover's shoulders, though Grover thinks Big Bird might be too heavy. "I'm just feathers," says Big Bird as he climbs on Grover. He can barley keep the bird up for long before falling down. Big Bird manages to get the kite in his beak before falling, but it ends up split open over Grover's head.
