Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 Zoe shows Telly her new rainbow tutu, sent by her Aunt Giselle from Swan Lake. Just as she is about to put it on, the wind carries it away. They chase it down the street, where it ends up in a tree. They try several methods to reach it, but it proves to be too high.

SCENE 1 cont'd Ultimately, Zoe gets onto Telly's shoulders and tries to reach it, but it's too far. They grab a stick to help reach, but they still come up short. Zoe is ready to give up, but Telly is determined to find a solution. They try putting their heads together (literally), but find it's easier to think separated. Telly thinks they can communicate with the tree and has Zoe pretend she's a tree to make a better connection, but it ultimately doesn't work either.
SCENE 1 cont'd They believe they could use a superhero and sure enough, spot Super Grover flying overhead. They get his attention and he flies toward the tree...only to get stuck in it as well ("This is tutu sad," he sighs).

SCENE 1 cont'd Alan comes by and sees the sticky situation. He gives them one idea they haven't thought of: get a ladder! Big Bird happens by just then and Telly realizes they won't need the ladder; Big Bird is tall enough to reach the tutu! Big Bird approaches the tree and is able to pull the tutu down with his beak. Zoe is very happy and dances with Telly and Big Bird. Super Grover declines any help and uses his super brains to get him hailing a taxi. When that seems futile, he asks Alan for the ladder.
