Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN My Favorite Sesame Street Moments
Dr. Alex Jenny Ky talks about how Sesame Street taught her the alphabet and numbers through friendly characters. A clip from the season 4 premiere of the characters holding up letters that introduce their names is shown.

SCENE Baby Bear is showing Curly Bear the things he can do that she can’t because she’s smaller. He proceeds to sing about it, demonstrating such things as lifting heavy stuff, jumping high and growling loudly, until he gets a load of Curly’s growl. Baby Bear notes something’s wrong: he’s the bigger brother, but he doesn’t have the bigger growl. He tries regaining his high role by growling again, but is over-shadowed by Curly’s.

SCENE cont'd Big Bird walks over, having heard Curly’s tremendous growl. She blows them away her next one. Baby Bear asks the β€œBig” expert on how to make a big growl. Big Bird suggests doing what Curly does before she growls. They observe her tugging her ear, sucking her thumb, stretching and finally letting out the huge growl. Baby Bear tries it, but his growl hardly gets bigger.

SCENE cont'd Professor Gary Gill, a traveling salesman, and his two assistants arrive having heard his problems and offer (in song) a solution – using the letter G, as the word β€œgrowl” starts with it. He tells him to imagine a giant G, which would make his growl bigger. However, his growl isn’t any bigger, but Curly’s humongous growl frightens the salesmen away.
SCENE cont'd Just then, Papa Bear arrives to get the kids for lunch, when Curly shows off her new growl. Baby Bear confess his problems to his father, who points out that there’s nothing to be ashamed of. Instead, he should be proud of her. Papa Bear leaves to fetch his hat blown off by her growl.

SCENE cont'd Now seeing how special she is, Baby Bear tries to show her off to a passing man, who Curly blows the clothes off with her growl.
