Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 Grundgetta presents the number 9, which she needs to ask a question that any non-Grouch will be unable to answer: what grouchy nursery rhyme involves the number nine? Maria and Luis are stumped, but two kids correctly guess that it's "Pease Porridge." Maria doesn't think the rhyme is all that grouchy, when Grundgetta retorts, "When was the last time you ate cold, nine day old pease porridge out of a pot?"
