SCENE 1 Big Bird welcomes the viewer while introducing the sponsors, when he hears an approaching motorcycle. It turns out to be none other than Sir John Feelgood, acting once more. He explains he's looking for a large dog to study for an upcoming production of Doggy Day Afternoon. He is completely oblivious, however, to Barkley dragging Bob all over the block.
