SCENE 1 Big Bird has devised a number of ways to ensure animals of all sizes can learn that "Peligro" means "danger" in Spanish. He's pasted the word to the bottom of his wagon for worms to see, the bottoms of his feet for the ants, and has even prepared a hat for Luis to educate the birds flying by. Luis passes at first, but seeing how hurt Big Bird becomes, he accepts it. Big Bird then provides him with some "peligro" kneepads for small dogs to read.
