Picture Segment Description
SCENE 1 Luis sees that Oscar's trash can is surrounded by leafy, tropical plants and marked with a "HOT" sign on it. Oscar explains today is "Hot Day," where he turns up the furnace in his can. Even Tarzan of the Grouches is partaking in the event, swinging from vines inside the can. Oscar proposes watching the elephants bathe, which Luis knows is a trick to get him wet in some manner. He ends up with a face full of water regardless.
