SCENE 2 Snuffy arrives with his snuffle-duffle bag, ready for a night sleeping under the stars. Suddenly, a boom of thunder indicates rain is coming. Snuffy doesn't want his fur to get soggy, so Big Bird thinks of somewhere else he can sleep. They try going to Gordon and Susan's apartment, but Snuffy can't fit through the front doors of 123 Sesame Street. Big Bird then proposes Oscar's trash can, which is also much too small. An idea finally dawns on the bird, who leads Snuffy to the garage, which has enough space of a Snuffleupagus.
