The Big Bird and Snuffy bumpers were a series of transitional segments used from Season 31 to Season 32 in which Big Bird and Snuffy perform a vaudeville act which transitions to the next segment. They were distinguished by the preceding performer, and are as follows:

  • A quartet of lambs do a daredevil act on stage, which involves the first two lambs balancing a chair on top of a pole, the third lamb firing a cannon, and the fourth lamb landing in the chair after being shot out of the cannon. When the act fails, vaudeville team Big Bird and Snuffy take the stage, and introduce the letter of the day with a joke. (EKA: Episode 3871)
  • A magician attempts a suspension act, which fails. Big Bird and Snuffy then come back out to introduce the number of the day ... (EKA: Episode 3871)
  • A rooster comedian is yanked off stage ("Get me outta here!" ), and Big Bird and Snuffy come back out to introduce the letter of the day ... (EKA: Episode 3885)
  • Later on, the rooster comedian bombs again ("What am I playing to, an audience or an oil painting?"), so Big Bird and Snuffy introduce an alphabet segment. (EKA: Episode 3871)
  • A tuxedoed elephant dances to "Tea for Two," and ends up damaging part of the stage. Big Bird and Snuffy come out again to tell a joke and introduce a shape segment. (EKA: Episode 3885)
  • Shecky the penguin makes his final bird call on a cellphone. When he's done, Big Bird and Snuffy come out again, this time to re-introduce the number of the day ... (EKA: Episode 3926)
