Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN Big Bird sets up today's theme of the alphabet. He opens his mailbox to find a letter - B, for Big Bird.
(First: Episode 4807)

SCENE Big Bird and Snuffy find a stage in the middle of the arbor. An Anything Muppet host appears, declaring the two as the hosts for today's Letter of the Day Show. They start hopping in joy of finding out the letter of the day, causing the letter behind the curtains to fall over and break. Because it was not visible at first, they don't know how to repair it. They get the idea that the show's guests will provide clues for what the letter was, as each guest is related to the letter in some way.


SCENE cont'd The first guest is a Box. They think the letter of the day is B, but they only have two straight pieces. The next guest is a Ball of Wax. They think the letter could be W, but it has four lines. The next guest is a Tyrannosaurus-Rex, played by Leela (who wanted to be on the show, and also loves dressing as a dinosaur). Big Bird gives up on the cause, not being able to figure out how all the guests are related when they start with different letters.
SCENE cont'd Snuffy encourages them to keep thinking when they hit upon an idea: the words start with different letters, but end the same way: with the letter X! Leela fixes the letter for them and they rejoice.

Muppets Abby Cadabby leads the gang in a song to introduce the letter of the day - A.

Muppets Cookie's Crumby Pictures presents Jurassic Cookie (Rated SC: For Self Control)
Cookie Monster plays a scientist who opens a park of giant cookies, genetically made from an ancient cookie crumb. He brings his grandchildren to the "Jurassic Cookie" park and they're met with a giant gingerbread dinosaur. They all seek shelter at the laboratory, where a sign instructs them on what to do. However, part is missing, leaving only an H as a clue. Cookie Monster assumes it means "hula" and "halibut," when his grandkids have him calm down and think by hugging himself. Cookie now thinks the H is for "hug" and stops the rampaging cookie with a hug. Suddenly, Cookie realizes what the dinosaur is made and the chase reverses itself.
