SCENE 1 All seems like a normal day on Sesame Street, when an announcer (Martin P. Robinson) introduces the hit egg show, All About Eggs, hosted by Big Bird and Mr. Snuffleupagus. The two tease what will be seen on today's program and instruct the audience to shout "EGGS" when their sign begins flashing. Big Bird also displays a picture of the (big) egg he was hatched from. To kick off the show, they present the letter E, the first letter of the word "EGGS."
