SCENE 1 Baby Bear welcomes the viewer to Sesame Street, and announces that he's going inside the Furry Arms Hotel for the first time. He asks Benny Rabbit to show him around, and Benny shows him how to use a revolving door. Baby Bear pushes it too soft first, then too hard, then just right. He is amazed when he first enters the hotel, and begs for Benny to give him a tour of the place (since Benny said he needs a break).

SCENE 2 Benny obliges, and gives Baby Bear a tour of the hotel. Sherry Netherland welcomes Baby Bear to the place, and asks him what he'd like to do first. Baby Bear expresses interest in ringing the Dinger's bell, so she lets him do it, as long as Benny goes outside, since the bell is used to call the bellhop. Baby Bear rings it too soft, then too hard, so Sherry shows him (twice) how to ring it loud, so he can do it the right way, resulting in a very exhausted Benny. The tour continues ...

SCENE 3 Baby Bear has fun exploring the lobby, and is even more excited when they get to the elevator. Benny says he can't ride the elevator, or push the buttons, but Sherry lets him do so. They soon find themselves face to face with the Elephant Elevator Operator himself, and Baby Bear suddenly doesn't feel like taking an elevator ride. Benny repeatedly shows him how to get in and out of a small box with a big elephant, until he's exhausted. Baby Bear gets in, and just as soon as the elevator lifts up, it plummets down.

SCENE 5 Baby Bear begs Benny to return to his job at the Furry Arms. Benny refuses to go back, and Baby Bear bursts into tears, thinking it's his fault. He promises that he'll never ask Benny for anything again, but he still doesn't want to go back. Baby Bear cries again, and hugs Benny so hard that he says he'll go back to work. Baby Bear is happy now, and asks Benny to show him the other parts of the hotel. Benny says no at first, but when he sees Baby Bear walk away sadly, he changes his mind and continues the tour. Sherry announces the sponsors.
