Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 Maria and the kids play with a ball, which gets stuck on top of the trellis outside Hooper's Store. Before Maria can go get a ladder, Super Grover lands on the scene (or in the trash basket, rather). "Somebody put a trellis under your ball," he observes and tries moving it. When that fails, he begins scaling the trellis. Maria instead fetches a ladder and recovers the ball with ease. She also carries Super Grover back down when he discovers he too is stuck.
