Picture Segment Description
Scene Nils has given Rumpel an ugly, shiny new can. He has to do something about the can so it can go into his collection of wonderful old rusty cans.

After Rumpel leaves, Wolle, Samson and Pferd come running by. Pferd stops and calls the others over; there seems to be a strange can. Wolle decides that it's a case for the great detective Wolle.

Scene Detective Wolle instructs Pferd and Samson to look for clues to see if they can discover who the can belongs to. However, Pferd and Samson can't find any clues, but to Wolle, that is the answer for the case. If there are no clues, then no one has left the can; therefore, the can has gotten here by itself. Pferd can't understand how a can could place itself there. Wolle says that the only explanation is that the can was dropped from the sky and the dent in the can came from the landing on Sesamstrasse.
