Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN Baby Bear, on the run from Goldilocks, asks the viewer how to get to Sesame Street. He hears the opening theme as he climbs up the sign, and realizes that he's already there.
SCENE 1 Baby Bear enters Hooper's, and asks Gina for a bowl of porridge. He explains that he's sick of Goldilocks entering his house, eating his porridge, breaking his chair, and sleeping in his bed. He's about to dig into his porridge, when he becomes startled by the sounds of a fire engine, followed by that of a drill.

The driller comes inside for some porridge and is revealed to be Goldilocks, who came to the city for its multiple job opportunities. Gina serves Goldilocks her own bowl and insists Baby Bear calm down. Her break then ends and she heads back to the streets, making too much noise for Baby Bear to handle. He leaves for some place where Goldilocks won't find him.
Film Joe Raposo sings "Everybody Eats."
