SCENE Telly, Rosita, Baby Bear, and Curly Bear welcome the viewer to Sesame Street. Telly and Rosita are getting ready to play a game of tag and ask Baby Bear if he would like to play with them. However, Baby Bear says he has to take care of Curly Bear and cannot play with them.
SCENE, cont'd Telly and Rosita play tag with each other until they get tired of tagging each other constantly. They decide to find another person that can play with them.
SCENE, cont'd As they look around, Telly notices a girl sitting at the steps of 123 Sesame Street. He has never seen her around here before, but he and Rosita decide to go over there and ask her if she wants to play tag with them.
SCENE, cont'd When they get closer to the girl, Telly and Rosita say hi to her. However, the girl doesn’t turn around or reply back to them no matter how many times they say hi to her. Rosita thinks maybe she doesn’t want to play with them and is ignoring them.
SCENE, cont'd Just then, Bob arrives and says hi to Rosita and Telly. He then signs hello to the girl and introduces his niece, Samara, to Telly and Rosita. Telly says he and Rosita said hi to her, but she didn’t hear them. Samara signs that she is sorry and that she didn’t hear them. Telly and Rosita decide to shout louder thinking that Samara might hear them better. However, Bob informs them that she is deaf and cannot hear, but she can understand and communicate with her hands called sign language.
SCENE, cont'd After clearing up the confusion, Telly asks Samara if she wants to play tag with them. Samara signs and Bob tells them that she would like to play with them. However, Rosita thinks it would be a problem since she and Telly don’t know any sign language. Bob informs them that they can communicate without knowing any sign language, such as shaking their head side to side is no and nodding head is yes. They all play a guessing game to figure out what Samara is signing to them. Afterwards, Samara plays tag with Telly and Rosita.
SCENE, cont'd Telly and Rosita are now tired from playing tag and decides to take a break and recite the alphabet. However, they realize Samara can’t say the alphabet since she is deaf. On the other hand, Samara shows them that she can recite the alphabet by signing the letters. After reciting the alphabet, they all go back to their game of tag.
SCENE, cont'd Later, Telly, Rosita, and Samara go to Hooper’s Store and meet Alan, Baby Bear, and Curly Bear. Telly and Rosita introduce Samara to them and inform them that she is deaf, but can communicate with sign language. Alan signs hi to Samara and introduces Baby Bear and Curly Bear to her. Baby Bear tries to get Curly Bear to say hi to Samara, but she isn’t listening and is pointing at her mouth.
SCENE, cont'd Samara thinks that Curly Bear is using her hands to communicate to them. All of them watch as what Curly bear did and finds out she is hungry and wants to eat a banana. After she gets her banana, Curly Bear starts to move her right arm up and down. Samara thinks she is acting like a monkey and Baby Bear realizes what Curly Bear is trying to tell him. He explains whenever she eats a banana, he has to act like a monkey. Baby Bear starts to jump around and howl like a monkey as Curly bear eats her banana.
SCENE, cont'd Samara signs to Baby Bear that he makes a good monkey. Baby Bear is amazed at the way Samara signs that he wants to learn sign language. Telly and Rosita agree and want to learn also. Then, Baby Bear joins the game of tag with Telly, Rosita, and Samara, leaving Curly Bear in Alan’s hands. Alan continues to act like a monkey as Curly Bear finishes up her banana.
