Snuffy arrives late for his first Grouchketeer meeting, stating that he had trouble getting his trashcan lid on. Oscar is so impressed with how humongous Snuffy's trashcan lid is, that he makes him the star of "Trash and Tell." Snuffy exhibits large items of trash he brought from home, such as his old Christmas ornaments and jogging shoes. Later, they take a trip to the Snuffleupagus Dump, where Oscar sings "There's a Big Heap of Trash at the End of the Rainbow." At the episode's closing, Oscar announces the sponsors and has the Grouchketeers stick their thumbs in their ears to wave goodbye.
