Picture Segment Description
SCENE 1 Maria takes a lunch and relaxation break outside the Fix-It Shop. Elsewhere, Olivia needs to ride to a job, but her bike is broken. She sees Maria is relaxing and hesitates asking for help. She eventually does and Maria gladly helps out. Maria concludes that it feels good to relax and to help out a friend.
SCENE 2 Big Bird is in a tizzy - he expects company soon and slept in by accident, leaving him little time to clean up his nest. The Amazing Mumford helps out using some magic. Big Bird is grateful and invites Mumford to stay and meet Mr. Snuffleupagus. Mumford passes, not wishing to deal with the imaginary friend nonsense. Snuffy arrives and Big Bird tells him about Mumford. Snuffy finds the idea of a real-life magician ridiculous.
SCENE 3 Maria names some P words. A Muppet cow strolls in and claims her name starts with P - Peter. Maria points out that's a boy's name and she's a female cow. The cow changes her name to Polly, which Maria claims is a name associated with parrots. The cow settles on Penny now.
SCENE 4 Maria now discusses L words, when the cow returns, claiming her name is Lenny. She tries changing it to other names, but keeps picking male ones.
SCENE 5 Maria announces the sponsors as the cow keeps trying out various L-names.
