Picture Segment Description
SCENE 1 At the Sesame Street Library, teen staffer Micki tries to find a book for the Two-Headed Monster. She brings them a copy of "The Three Little Pigs," but one head doesn't like pigs. She instead gets them a book of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears," but the other head doesn't like bears. She gives them both books so each head can read what they want, but they only make it into a line of each book before loudly arguing over which animal is better.
