Picture Segment Description
SCENE 1 Bob gets up early to go for a morning jog around Sesame Street. While he's gone, Maria, Susan, David, and Luis (with his guitar) gather under his apartment window to surprise him by singing a new song he's written. When they receive no response from the window above, they assume he's asleep and try the plan again, only now by calling him on the Hooper's Store payphone. Still receiving no response, they all decide to surprise him in person at his apartment instead.

SCENE 1 cont'd Just as they all head inside, Bob returns from his jog and sits out in the arbor. To help catch his breath, he sings his new song to the viewer. The rest of the adults appear at his window and listen along. When he finishes, they all cheer, truly giving him a surprise.
