Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN What's the Word on the Street?: Humongous
(First: Episode 4211)
SCENE Leela and Telly welcome the viewer when they hear someone moaning in distress. Jack, from “Jack and the Beanstalk”, walks up to them, and expresses his sadness. He explains he doesn’t have a beanstalk yet and doesn’t know how to get one. He displays the cow he has and also claims he must figure the problem out on his own. To indirectly help him, they decide to give him some clues. His first clue is that he must trade his cow for something that grows in the ground.

SCENE cont'd Much to their disbelief, Jack returns with a duck and tries forcing it into the ground. They tell him he’s wrong and all begin sobbing, until Leela snaps them out of it. She gives him his next clue: it grows in the ground and rhymes with “jeans.”
SCENE cont'd Jack returns, having trading his duck for…some tambourines. “Interesting rhyme”, Telly remarks. He feels he’s failed again, but Telly convinces him to press onward for the sake of his story. Leela and Telly huddle and come up with his final clue: it grows in the ground, rhymes with “jeans” and is very little.


SCENE cont'd Jack finally returns and with some beans! Leela retrieves a pot and watering can from the garden and shows him how to plant the seeds. She tells him it will take a while before it starts growing, but when the ground begins to shake, she remembers the beans are magic and grow a lot faster. Suddenly, a large beanstalk shoots from the pot. Jack, Leela and Telly then sing about the greatest green beanstalk that he ever grew.
SCENE cont'd Telly asks Jack if he’s ready to climb the beanstalk. Jack thinks that would harm his precious plant and decides to start a beanstalk farm instead. Leela wonders if there’s a giant at the top, when a loud, booming voice answers her question from above.
