Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 Luis watches over some kids doing drawings in the arbor, with Humphrey, Ingrid and Natasha observing nearby. Natasha shows interest in drawing too, so Luis gives her a crayon and paper. She immediately starts scribbling all over it. Her parents begin to fawn over the picture, boasting that she's a natural artist. They interpret her squiggles as a drawing of Luis riding a turtle. They interpret her second piece the same way, but the third one depicts Luis riding a cow instead.

The Elephant is flattered and agrees, but Natasha doesn't care for any of his chosen poses. Humphrey believes she wants to draw him chasing monsters, but all the others have already gone off to the clubhouse. Instead, he chases Humphrey and Ingrid around until he leaves to attend his club meeting. Humphrey pretends to be an elephant to chase Ingrid around now.
