Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 Big Bird is excited because today, the great actor Sir John Feelgood is coming to visit Sesame Street. He hears a dog barking, and soon finds out that it's not a dog, but Sir John himself (complete with standing ovations)! Big Bird is amazed at Sir John's ability to pretend to be anything else at the drop of a hat. Big Bird shows him that he knows how to pretend too, by neighing like a horse. Sir John tells him to imagine all aspects of being a horse, which makes him feel more "horsey" and improves his pretending. He wants to do some more, but Sir John would rather sleep ... "perchance to dream" ... but again, he's just pretending!

SCENE 2 "Bigger! Mooier! Let out all your cow feelings that are deep inside of you," says Sir John (who formerly portrayed a cow in "Moostruck") to Big Bird as he tries mooing like a cow. Snuffy wishes he could act, and Sir John reassures him that he's already "dripping with acting talent" and can pretend to be a mouse. Snuffy isn't sure of that but, like a mouse, he is alive, he enjoys dinner at night, and he shivers when it's cold. Knowing this, Snuffy gives it a try, and gets a standing ovation from the unseen audience.
