FRAME 1 The Sing, Hoot & Howl club, comprised of various Muppet animals, sing a rendition of "Old MacDonald." Big Bird attempts to quiet things down so he can start the meeting, helped by a roar from Chicago the Lion (the club's secretary-treasurer). Big Bird gives the first song request to a working "watch-dog," who represents Acme Watches.
