Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 Tingo welcomes the viewer, stating Niki's grandparents are coming to visit. He practices how he'll greet them in front his mirror. His alarm clock goes off, which means it's time to wake Niki up. However, he can't seem to get her awake. He has an idea...

Cast Tingo hosts the game show "Wake Up Niki!," where constants try to wake her up. The first contestant tries an alarm clock, which does not work. The second plays his loud trumpet, which also fails. The third uses a mini-jackhammer; Niki almost gets up, but goes back to sleep.
Muppets Herry Monster wakes up and says "Good Morning, Morning" to everything. (edited, on-screen words "Good Morning" added)
Cartoon Art supplies draw a capital and lower case G.
Muppets "Elmo's Rap Alphabet"
Cast Inspired by Elmo's song, Niki and Tingo rap their own version of the alphabet.
Cartoon The word DOG is spelled out over a weiner dog.
Song "Let's Wash the Dog" (uses the same footage from "Washin' the Dog," but features new music and lyrics)
SCENE 2 By now, Niki's awake and her grandparents arrive. Tingo is a tad nervous while shaking their hands and presenting them with flowers. He leads them toward his room, but accidentally stumbles into the wall, knocking himself out. He woozily gets up, claiming he's made a good impression.
