Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 Oscar hosts WORM-TV's Mystery Number Movie of the Day. Midway through their showing of The Mud Above and the Mud Below (a film of pigs), Oscar dials the phone number of a lucky viewer, who can win a year's supply of trash if they correctly guess today's number of the day - 6. Maria ends up being the unlucky contestant. She does not wish to participate in the proceedings, citing all the work she's had to do since six o'clock this morning. Since she's mentioned today's number, some Grouches appear and begin tossing bundles of trash at an enraged Maria.
