SCENE 1
Excited by his experiences in New Mexico so far, Big Bird has saddled up some horses and is sitting on a cart. "Well, howdy-doody there, buckaroos!" he cries. "It's your old sidekick, Buffalo Bird -- the rootinest, tootinest cowbird west of the Harlem. Yee haw! Yes, sir. I just got out this old buckbore here, cause I'm gonna mosey on down to the ol' lariat, and corral myself a bulldog. I'll round up a herd of them critters before it's time to hitch up to the ol' chuck wagon and put on the feedbag. Why, when it comes to ridin', ropin' or ranchin', you gotta go a fur piece to out-buffalo Buffalo Bird!" Big Bird urges on his horses: "Henry! Jerry! Giddyup now!" The horses take off... but Big Bird forgot to attach them to the cart, so they walk off without him. "I knew I'd forgotten something," he sighs.

Muppets
When Maurice, a hapless casanova, puts an Anything Muppet woman's head together, he tells her that he loves her, but it turns out she doesn't love him. He then proceeds to take her head apart, bit by bit, as he sings "I Want to Hold Your Ear" (as well as eyes, nose, tooth, and hair). After she walks off in a huff, he notices to his shock that the parts he set aside have attached themselves to the tablecloth, who thinks he's kinda cute.

FredTheWonderhorse
Muppets
Marshal Grover asks Fred the Wonder Horse why he's walking backwards -- he can only see where he's been, and not where he's going. He also wants to know what happened to Fred's head. Fred explains that Marshal Grover doesn't know the difference between front and back. "That is a terrible, mean, cruel thing to say to me, Fred!" Marshal Grover exclaims. "It is true, but..." Fred tells Grover that he's facing backward, and if he turns around, he'll see Fred's head. Grover turns around, and cries: "Oh, Fred! I've missed you! Oh, it's good to see you!" Fred says that if he stays turned around, he'll be able to see where he's going. Grover tries it, and he's proud to know the difference between front and back. Unfortunately, now his head is resting on the saddle, with his feet in the air.
