Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 Big Bird welcomes the viewer to Sesame Street. Today, he tells us that the letter of the day is the letter L and the number of the day is the number 6. When he is finished, he sees Snuffy saying float, float, float backwards and then feels Big Bird. Big Bird asks what he is doing. Snuffy tells him that instead of being a snuffleupagus, he’s a floating cloud. He's pretending to be a cloud. He explains why he is a cloud: there is a play in Snufflegarden. His mother made it for him. Big Bird asks him a question that he has to ask his mom: can he play with his cloud costume? Snuffy takes the kids and Big Bird to Hooper's Store where his mom is buying some food. After the kids and Big Bird say please, Snuffy’s mother says yes but he has to promise to not get it dirty, not go near the trash, and not sit on the ground. There is a trashcan near by and Big Bird moves it as Snuffy floats away from it. Alan wonders how long Snuffy’s costume will stay clean.

Big Bird says that instead of falling down, we fall up. Snuffy tells him that he can’t fall up because you can’t fall up, you have to fall down. Instead, they can jump up which they all do.
