SCENE 1 Today on Sesame Street, everyone is out blowing bubbles. Alan, Elmo, and Rosita sing a short song about blowing bubbles. Oscar appears and shocks them all by saying how much he loves bubbles...popping them, that is. After observing a family of Dingers participating in the bubble fun, Cookie Monster appears to blow bubbles too. He whips out his giant bubble wand, but before he can blow, the wand's shape reminds him of cookies and he gobbles it up; he begins hiccuping bubbles.
SCENE 1 cont'd Rudy sees all the bubbles floating about and wants to join in, having never blown a bubble before. He thinks he'll quickly be the best bubble blower of all and envisions himself floating over Sesame Street in a bubble, singing about such a feat.


SCENE 1 cont'd After Oscar bursts his bubble, Rudy is ready to start making his own. Everyone shows him what to do, but for some reason, he can't manage to blow any bubbles. He becomes very frustrated with his failures and his friends help him calm down. As he takes some calming breaths, he nearly blows a bubble. They realize Rudy's mistake was inhaling instead of exhaling when trying to blow the bubble. Rudy blows out this time and manages to make his first bubble! Oscar pops it immediately after. Rudy doesn't mind, as he now knows how to make more and encourages Oscar to keep popping them so he can make more. Everyone sings the bubble-making song once more.
