Picture Segment Description
3947a.jpg
SCENE 1 Big Bird and Snuffy are hosts of "The Alphabet Game," where contestants can win prizes for saying the alphabet. Gordon, the first involuntary contestant, has to say the alphabet with one hand behind his back and one eye closed, while dancing with a chicken ... in about 15 seconds. This is difficult for him, because he's carrying a grocery bag, but he takes on the task anyway, and wins dancing lessons with the chicken.

SCENE 2 Maria, the next contestant on the Alphabet Game, is on her way to fix Gordon's toaster, but the audience wants her to play, so she goes along with it. Her mission is to name five L-words, with one hand on her head and one finger on her nose, while being chased by the chicken! She makes good use of her 45 seconds, and wins a trip to the Fix-It Shop, complete with another chicken-chase.

SCENE 3 The next contestant, Zoe, would rather count than say the alphabet (which she already did with Elmo several times just now). Thus, the Alphabet Game is switched to the Counting Game, in which Zoe has to count to 20, with her hands over her head, without laughing, before the chicken (in a hospital maternity outfit) lays an egg! She does so, and wins!
