  • Cartoon: A goat sings the "Mad Goat Song." A dog pulls the goat's whiskers, a cat sets off a loud firecracker, a duck makes faces at the goat, and a pig refuses to share his ice cream with the goat.
  • Ernie and Bert: Ernie wants Bert to pretend to be mad, but Bert says that he can't, because he has nothing to feel angry about. Ernie asks Bert to pretend that he borrowed Bert's paper clip collection, and lost his favorite paper clip. The thought makes Bert really mad. Bert gets tired out, and tells Ernie that he can't get mad anymore. Ernie then makes a confession -- he really did lose Bert's favorite paper clip. (EKA: Episode 0749)
