SCENE 1 Excited by his experiences in New Mexico so far, Big Bird has saddled up some horses and is sitting on a cart. "Well, howdy-doody there, buckaroos!" he cries. "It's your old sidekick, Buffalo Bird -- the rootinest, tootinest cowbird west of the Harlem. Yee haw! Yes, sir. I just got out this old buckbore here, cause I'm gonna mosey on down to the ol' lariat, and corral myself a bulldog. I'll round up a herd of them critters before it's time to hitch up to the ol' chuck wagon and put on the feedbag. Why, when it comes to ridin', ropin' or ranchin', you gotta go a fur piece to out-buffalo Buffalo Bird!" Big Bird urges on his horses: "Henry! Jerry! Giddyup now!" The horses take off... but Big Bird forgot to attach them to the cart, so they walk off without him. "I knew I'd forgotten something," he sighs.
