Picture Segment Description
SCENE 1 Big Bird lures Maria to his nest to show her the snowman he's built. Maria says that it's upside down and that he should have looked at a picture of a snowman to see what one looks like. Big Bird produces a book called "World's Great Snowmen" and says it looks just alike a picture in the book... which Maria notes is upside down. She offers to help fix it, placing the head on the top, etc. Big Bird says he liked it better his first way, and Maria assures him that's fine: he's invented a new way to build a snowman.
SCENE 2 Luis, David, Maria, and Big Bird have all received a flyer in the mail from someone offering snow removal. They all make the call and ask the Anything Muppet to come right away.
SCENE 3 The AM shows up to shovel for his clients, but each of them ask to do their area first. After starting and stopping in each location to accomodate their requests, he gets yelled at. Oscar the Grouch hears him complaining about his customers, and is so impressed at how grouchy he is, he offers to help.
SCENE 4 From inside Hooper's Store, Maria and David see the AM and Oscar shovelling together. Oscar is annoyed that he got himself into a situation where he's being helpful. He begs the AM to say grouchy things to him in order to alleviate his frustration, but the AM can't stop saying how grateful he is for Oscar's help.
SCENE 5 The AM and Oscar finish shovelling and Oscar says if he thanks him one more time, he's going to dump all that snow back on the street. Big Bird asks the AM if he wants to play a game, and consults with the kids as to what game they should play. Once they decide on hide and seek, the AM has fallen asleep on the steps of 123 Sesame Street. Big Bird is impressed that he's already closed his eyes to be "it" and everyone scatters to hide.
