SCENE 1 Telly admires the spiffy new pogo stick Mr. Handford just got, which reminded him of when he was a kid -- he once bounced 234 times straight, which set a neighborhood record. He tries to jump on the stick again, but is confused when he fumbles the first few times. With the next few tries, he gets better and better.

Mr. Handford asks him if he can bounce on a pogo stick, and he decides to learn how (he couldn't before).
