SCENE 1 Poco Loco hangs out in Big Bird's nest area by himself and answers the ringing phone. The call is from Mr. Snuffleupagus, who only manages to say "Oh, I wonder where Bird is..." before hanging up. Poco is able to imitate Snuffy's voice perfectly. Big Bird approaches his front door and hears Poco's Snuffy imitation, thinking it's the real Snuffy. He brings Maria and David over to finally meet him, only to find Poco. They both realize they've been set up again, but do wonder where Poco picked up the voice from...
