Picture Segment Description
SCENE 1 An announcer introduces "The Number Four Show" starring Big Bird! He opens the show with a musical number, "I Just Adore Four," aided by the Tarnish Brothers.
SCENE 2 Next on "The Number Four Show" is Grover's impression of the number 4 by contorting his body into the shape of a 4 (with much strain). Grover suffers as Big Bird compares him to his own 4 to make sure they match up. To Grover's dismay, Big Bird now asks him to impersonate the number 38.
SCENE 3 Mr. Snuffleupagus is Big Bird's next secret, surprise guest. Concealed behind the fence, he jumps four times, rattling the audience and the whole street.
SCENE 4 "The Number Four Show" now presents Bert, who does impressions of four different pigeon emotions.
SCENE 5 Count von Count eagerly awaits his slot on the show. He's not pleased that he can only count up to such a small value like four, but he counts four kids anyway. He proceeds to count them again and again in different languages.
SCENE 6 Big Bird and his cast take a bow, while Snuffy bows from behind the fence.
