Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 Bob tells the viewer that he and the kids are about to start band rehearsal, but they're waiting for Gordon to show up. Gordon has got something else to do, so he instructs Monty to tell Bob that he is coming, but he is going to be late. Monty tries to memorize what Gordon told him by reciting it over and over, but ends up muddling the phrase beyond comprehension (turing it into "Ordon is humming, but he's going to have an eight.") When he reaches Bob with the message, Bob and the kids can't understand what he's talking about. They figure out through rhyming that Monty's message is "Gordon is coming, but he's going to be late."
SCENE 1 cont'd A humming monster (Peter Linz) then passes by with a number 8 and is revealed that his name is Ordon. Monty and Ordon walk off, scatting to "Ordon is humming, but he's gonna have an eight."
