Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 Mr. Snuffleupagus turns shy when Big Bird invites some Honkers over to meet him. The Honkers are amazed by the sight of Snuffy and try honking his snuffle. Snuffy wishes he could communicate with them, then runs off with an idea. While he's gone, Luis comes by to drop off Big Bird's repaired clock. Big Bird and the Honkers try to tell him about Snuffy, but he brushes the idea off as usual. Once he's gone, Snuffy returns with a large, loud horn he can honk with. Big Bird calls for Luis over the doors, but Luis still doesn't believe Snuffy is there...though he starts thinking otherwise when he hears a loud honk unlike any he's heard before.
