Initially, Sooey is shown to be shy and very self-conscious, telling Big Bird, Shari Lewis and Lamb Chop that nobody will like her because she's a pig. Recognizing the likability Big Bird and Lamb Chop have, she attempts to change her image and become a bird, then a lamb. They assure Sooey that they like her just the way she is and, per her request, sing a song about it. Sooey finally sees her value and decides to go into show business under the stage name "Pork Chop," already planning a TV series, Pork Chop's Play Along.
