Picture Segment Description


SCENE 1 Snuffy welcomes the viewer, and tries to get Alice to do the same. He advises to Alice that whenever someone comes along, it'd be polite to greet them. Then, Susan comes to say hello to Snuffy, and instead of saying "Hi", Alice says "yes". Snuffy reminds her to say hello, and Miss Trump comes along. By the time Alice had said hello, it was too late for Miss Trump to hear. After one last reminder, Uncle Wally comes to Snuffy for some conversation, and Alice bursts out with "Hi!" Uncle Wally is taken aback, and they both exchange hellos continuously. Once Uncle Wally leaves, Alice does not stop saying "hi", and Snuffy remarks that he may have to teach her when to stop.

SCENE 2 Snuffy tells Alice that they have to stick together because she needs someone who is four years old to watch over her. As Snuffy walks off-screen and rambles, Alice stays behind and tries to say "hi" to a fire hydrant. Snuffy comes back and explains to Alice that a fire hydrant is not alive, and it won't understand her. Snuffy once again walks off-screen and rambles, while this time Alice tries to say "hi" to the trash basket. Snuffy has to tell her that it isn't alive either. Barkley appears and Alice bursts with another hello, followed by Gordon, who was coming out of the garage. They both soon notice she is trying to say hello to the newsstand, and agree that learning takes time.

Barkley stops by, and Telly and Juliet shoo him away from eating their sandwiches, which leads Telly to sugesting a dog could come and eat all their food- to which Juliet adds on that ants could come as well, so they both get dog and ant food respectively. Telly then supposes it could rain, so he brings an umbrella. Juliet notes that there could also be wind, to which Telly exaggerates it to be a hurricane, and that a branch would fall on their heads, so they both get helmets (and a chainsaw in the case they get stuck under the branch). Gordon drops in to say hello, and notices the fuss. Meanwhile Telly scurries to get his barbells in case the wind blows their food away.
