Picture Segment Description
SCENE 1 Mr. Handford is helping a customer at Hooper's Store and welcomes the viewer. He tells the viewer that every day Telly Monster comes to Hooper's for lunch and orders the same thing, a cheese sandwich. On cue, Telly comes in and asks Mr. Handford for the cheese sandwich. The other customer looks at it and wants the same, but with lettuce.
Telly is wary of adding lettuce, afraid that if he doesn’t like it, he might fall down off the stool, roll out of Hooper's, and hit Lexine on her pogo stick who will fly into Oscar's trash can. Mr. Handford tells him that trying new foods is the only way to find out what you like or don't like. Telly decides to try it, but asks Mr. Handford to tell Lexine to get off her pogo stick.
