Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN 10th Season Intro Still
SCENE 1 It's twilight on Sesame Street. Luis fills a large bucket with water to rinse it out, while Mr. Hooper brings out a bowl of water to wipe down a table. They both clear the area, when Mr. Snuffleupagus wanders by. He's getting ready for bedtime, but his mommy forgot to get him a glass of water. He intends on visiting Big Bird for a drink, when he spots the containers of water left behind in the yard. He slurps up the bowl of water, but needs more, so he drinks all the water n the bucket. Still thirsty, he takes the most water from the pool in Oscar's trash can. Oscar pops up and declares he's been robbed. Luis and Mr. Hooper rush over and find his claims silly, until they discover the water they left out has disappeared as well...
