  • Cartoon: What if an elephant and a mouse had their features switched around?
  • Sitting at the counter in Hooper's Store, Big Bird wonders what it would be like to be short, so he tells Mr. Hooper he's going to do some imagining. He closes his eyes and Big Bird sees himself small enough to walk around on the counter where he interacts with, compared now to his tiny stature, is a large bowl of ice cream and large squeak toy which scares him now because he's so small. When Mr. Hooper cleans up, Big Bird notes that he's now too small to notice, so he imagines himself back to reality. Mr. Hooper leans in to Big Bird from overhead to excuse himself, making Big Bird wonder if he's still imagining. The camera pulls back to reveal Mr. Hooper standing on a step ladder, and Big Bird resolves to being his normal size again.
