Picture Segment Description
Cold Opening Ernie asks Bert if he wants to collect mushrooms. Bert informs Ernie that they are in a city and mushrooms only grow in the forest. Ernie then empties his paper bag of mushrooms on the street and asks Bert again.
Scene Ella is about to water her vegetable garden when Finchen comes along to help. However, there's a big molehill in her garden, and Ella is sad that her lettuce is ruined. Below the molehill, the mole listens to what Ella and Finchen are talking about and he nods his head. Finchen tells Ella that she is sure the mole did not borrow in her garden on purpose. Finchen suggests to Ella that they should talk to the mole and direct him to a different place.
Scene Finchen and Ella try to shout to the mole asking him to burrow elsewere, but they don't get an answer. Ella thinks that the molehill might be too thick for the mole to hear anything, so they will need something louder. Meanwhile, the mole has decided to leave the area. Ella gets a megaphone in an attempt to get the mole's attention. The mole hurries away due to the noise.
Scene Rumpel is throwing balls at some cans and having a good time, when the earth suddenly shakes underneath him. Next to his barrel, a molehill appears. The mole pops up and introduces himself as Mulli. He tells Rumpel he burrowed from the garden to this place. But Rumpel is not happy with the fact that Mulli has decided to pop up next to his barrel.
Scene Finchen and Ella are still trying to talk to the mole at the molehill in the garden, but with no luck. Then Ella gets a new idea. Meanwhile, Mulli concludes that the new place he burrowed to is a nice place to settle in. Rumpel once again tells Mulli that he doesn't want him next to the barrel. Then they hear Finchen and Ella's voices. They have gotten a bigger megaphone and once again try to get the mole to move out of the garden. Rumpel now understands why Finchen and Ella are trying to get rid of the mole. Mulli then starts to tell Rumpel that he burrows through earth and sometimes mud, and that he has to have places where he can rest. Rumpel gets interested when Mulli mentions the word "mud". Mulli then starts to sing about how he burrows.
Scene Ella and Finchen notice that the mole is over at Rumpel's. Finchen tells Mulli that he is welcome to have a mole hill near her tree, and Ella tells him that she doesn't mind that he is in her garden as long as he does not destroy her vegetables with his molehills. But Rumpel tells them that Mulli is his new muddy friend and he will stay next to him.

Muppets The question on the "Ernie & Bert Show" is "What do you have on the head? It grows and you cut it". Ernie's first answer is a cactus since it grows. He rethinks it and then concludes that it has to be chives, because they grow and you cut them. Bert tells him that's correct, but you don't have chives on your head. Ernie then puts it on Bert's head to prove him wrong.
