SCENE 1 Rosita and Telly arrive at the Fix-It Shop for their checker game with Maria, only to find she's now swamped with toasters to fix. Maria then proposes the monsters go on a scavenger hunt and bring back three unique items, but must do so before she finishes fixing all the toasters. The first item on the list is a saxophone. They realize their only sax-playing friend, Hoots the Owl, is on tour, so it's off to find a different saxophone!
