SCENE 1 On a way hot day, Alan reads a story about a snowman to Elmo and Abby, but it doesn’t distract them from the exhausting heat. Abby thinks they should go to the North or South Pole, but Alan offers them some ice cream instead. When Alan leaves, Elmo gets an idea to make a snowman of their own, just like in the story.

Abby notices a puddle of water on the ground. She and Elmo theorize that a dog came by, shook itself dry and made the snowman wet, causing him to go get a towel to dry off. Abby remembers that Nina has some extra towels at the laundromat, so they venture over there.

Oscar enters, complaining about their singing. They ask if he’s seen a snowman, and he says he hates them because they’re made of nice, clean snow … which is made of water … which he only likes when it’s muddy and yucky. He offers them some sardine frozen yogurt, which reminds them of the ice cream that Alan was going to give them. They head for Hooper's Store while Oscar stays behind and offers his smelly treat to Nina.
