Picture Segment Description
SCENE 1 Micki introduces herself, and welcomes the viewer to the Sesame Street Library. Forgetful Jones walks in, holding a paper bag containing bananas, a bag of peanuts, and some hay- kept to help him remember why he came to the library. Forgetful assumes he's in a zoo and calls out to the animals, only for Micki to stop him in his tracks. She explains that they do have books about animals, however, but just as Micki goes to get one, Forgetful tells her that he isn't the one looking for a book about animals, but rather his horse, Buster, who then comes in asking Forgetful if he's gotten a book yet.
