Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 Telly goes to Hooper's Store, but finds the door is locked and the glass from the window is missing. He calls David over, who explains that some kids playing baseball accidentally broke the window. Telly helps David measure the size of the window so David can tell his friend what he needs. After measuring, David leaves to make his call. Telly gets an idea on how to help without using the glass and tells the viewer to "watch TV or something" while he heads for the newspapers.

SCENE 2 Telly has covered the empty hole in the door with newspaper. David tells him some reasons why the glass works better than newspaper. Telly is upset, because he's messed up and David won't be his friend. David denies the idea and shows him something could he can do with the newspaper - read it.
SCENE 3 David's friend Harris has arrived and shows Telly how he measures and cuts the glass to get it exactly right, then places it back in the door. While he hammers the moldings back in, Telly marvels at the many tools the world has.
SCENE 4 Telly is given the task of removing the drawn-on X from the glass, but no matter how hard he scrubs, it won't come off. He leaves to get soap and water.
SCENE 5 Telly tries scrubbing the window with a soapy sponge, but the X still remains. He gets an idea, via having a conversation with himself, and goes inside, discovering the X is marked on the other side of the glass.
SCENE 6 Grundgetta is leading a Grouchketeer meeting and announces the game they'll be playing - "Cross it Out." Grundgetta calls the kids up and asks them to cross out a different thing on her card. David calls her out on something; the kids are good at crossing things out, but she's done nothing. She gets the card and crosses the whole thing out.
SCENE 7 Grundgetta displays the cross out board and declares she's going to cross out more. She grabs some pink paint and crosses out the viewer! She decides that's not enough and starts filling in the screen, while David announces the sponsors.
