The Barber is the efficient owner of a tonsorial parlor, as featured in the Sesame Street song "Long Time, No See." The professional clipper tackles the ambitious job of treating an incredibly shaggy-haired gent.

The barber is initially startled by the client's friends chanting "Hmmm" behind him. Undaunted, however, he keeps on cutting, with a cheerful, continuing chant of "Snippety snip," pleased with the gradual revelation of the customer's bodily extremities. The job proves exhausting but satisfying. Even the discovery that the massive pile of hair has buried the three friends leaves him unfazed; the barber merely suggests that the customer "take a seat, it should take a little while."
