Big Bird tells Mr. Snuffleupagus that he's an imaginary creature. He says that the adults all insist that he's just a figment of Big Bird's imagination, and they know best. This makes both of them very sad. So they start to cry. Then Big Bird notices that Snuffy is shedding, which confirms that he is indeed real.
Oscar, who thinks he's a pirate, has built a long plank running out from the middle of his trash can, but Maria, Gordon and Susan protest that the plank is dangerous to passersby.
