SCENE 1 Hoots the Owl welcomes the viewer from the rooftop at night. Telly and Maria arrive, as Telly wants to meet a magical being known as "Radish Dude." He describes him, based on the story of "Izzy Monster and the Radish Dude": Izzy waits on the roof at night when Radish Dude appears. He gives Izzy a radish, which can grant his wish for a pony. Telly hopes Radish Dude can give him his wish of being able to whistle, but realizes he's forgotten some things he needs. Maria leaves to put Gabi to bed.
