SCENE 1 Uncle Wally welcomes the viewer to Sesame Street. Telly appears to tell Uncle Wally that The Grand High Triangle Lover is coming to Sesame Street today. Telly doesn't know why he is, but just then he appears with his dim-witted assistant Norman. The Grand High Triangle Lover tells Telly that he's thinking that he'd be "The Triangle Lover of the Year." All Telly has to do is show him how much he loves triangles by the time he and Norman get back. They exit, and Telly wonders what to do. He then decides to get his tuba.

SCENE 3 Savion teaches a tap-dancing lesson to some kids. In a panic, Telly asks Savion if he knows any triangle dance. Savion doesn't know any, but he's gotten an idea--for something like a square dance. Pulling out a triangle and giving it to Telly, Savion makes a triangle with his foot as he hits the triangle three times. Then Savion makes the dance more complicated, causing Telly to forget it and move on to something else.
