After talking with Oscar, they see Abby dressed in her pajamas floating above Big Bird's doors, ready to have her first sleepover at Big Bird's nest. She shows off the things she is brought, such as her pillow and book (both of which float with her). Big Bird notices no one can read the book to them, so Abby suggest Luis and Maria read.

SCENE 1 cont'd Now, it’s time for the story. Maria chooses "Hey Diddle Diddle" and the duo find humor in the word "diddle" and repeat it over and over. She begins the book and she and Luis plan on leaving when the characters from the book (a cat, a cow, a laughing dog and a dish and a spoon) appear before them. After kissing them goodnight, the couple tries to leave again, but a rain storm begins. With no other option left, Luis and Maria are forced to cancel their night out and have the sleepover in their apartment.

Muppets / Animation Bert and Ernie's Great Adventures
As rainforest ecologists, Ernie and Bert answer the call of a parrot in danger. Upon climbing to the top of the tree, they spy an operatic beaver chewing down the trees. They confront him and find out he is not doing it to make a dam, but rather to make an opera house for a visiting beaver diva and begins eyeing the parrot's tree. Ernie tries to distract him by making Bert dress as a tree to lure him away, but Bert fears being eaten. They teach the beaver that animals use trees for their homes. He sees the error of his ways and stops, but the Diva arrives, so they use the parrot’s tree house instead.
