Picture Segment Description
SCENE 1 Mr. Handford and Susan welcome the viewer as they tune into today's edition of the Sally Messy Yuckyael show, where Oscar the Grouch, Baby Bear and Goldilocks will be guests.


SCENE 1 cont'd As the program begins, Sally introduces her guests, whom Oscar believes are perfect for the Grouch audience. He claims they can never be friends because Goldilocks is always making Baby Bear angry. To prove it, he's brought along a copy of Goldilocks and the Three Bears to show how their troubled relationship began. He begins reading and by the time he reaches the porridge section, Baby Bear is very angry. Oscar happily teases there's more to come in the story, so Sally throws the program to a commercial break.

Susan begins to announce the sponsors, but Goldilocks interrupts, telling her to let Baby Bear do it, because she knows he likes to. Baby Bear defers to her, and they start arguing over who will let the other one say it. Susan thinks someone better do it, so she announces the sponsors.

Oscar immediately phones Sally, hoping to get another spot on her show.
