Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 Big Bird and Mr. Snuffleupagus see Slimey inching his way to the park. Big Bird notes that Slimey is big enough that he can do it all by himself now. Snuffy becomes confused - he's big and Slimey is little, but Snuffy can't travel like that on his own. Big Bird explains it's a grown-up's way of saying Slimey is old enough, not really having to do with size. Snuffy remembers he has to go home for his nap and asks Slimey to help him cross the street. Big Bird observes, "Snuffy's so big, I always forget he's just a little kid!"
