Picture Segment Description
SCENE 1 Oscar has received many letters for "Ask Oscar" and Telly doesn't think he'll be able to tend to all of them. Telly has had the idea to send a response to the letters not read on air, but he knows Oscar would never go along with that. Oscar insists he will and Telly and Kendra show him the automatic response they've prepared - "Dear Friend, I got your letter. Thank You - Oscar the Grouch." Oscar suggests some words be crossed out for not being in character and the entire letter becomes crossed out.
