Picture Segment Description


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 ...
