Picture Segment Description
SCENE 1 Bob greets the viewer, then encounters Big Bird standing in front of a giant box with a sheet over it. Big Bird claims he recently inspired Dr. Nobel Price’s latest invention: Snufflex, giant kleenex for sick Snuffleupaguses. Bob informs Dr. Price that this product is useless because 1) it already exists in a smaller form, and 2) Snuffleupaguses are just imaginary (which Big Bird denies). After Bob leads the crying doctor away, a sick Snuffy shows up and Big Bird hands him a tissue. When Big Bird realizes that Snuffy was just here, he tries to catch up with Bob and Dr. Price.
