Picture Segment Description
SCENE 1 Hiroshi washes some paintbrushes in his studio in the garage, when he's startled by a quacking duck. Big Bird runs in to translate - the duck explains the importance of water and points out that Hiroshi's faucet is leaking. He goes to get Maria to fix it, when the duck starts quacking about water again; this time, he and Big Bird need it to drink.
SCENE 2 The duck dictates something as Big Bird writes it down on his large paper. They show Hiroshi it's a sign to make sure people don't waste water. However, it's written in duck language (nothing but "quack") and Hiroshi tells them nobody will understand it. Maria exits the garage, finished with the job, then reads the sign and rushes back home to check if her sink is running.
SCENE 3 Hiroshi paints a special picture of fish for Wolfgang the Seal, who doesn't see any fish at all. Hiroshi points out the three fish hidden within the artwork. Wolfgang tries to eat it, but Hiroshi stops him and provides him with the fish he used as models.
SCENE 4 Hiroshi tries to paint over by Oscar's trash can, where Oscar and the kids are trying to cure Grundgetta's Grouch headache, where she feels nice and calm. They remedy this by playing loud horns and banging on pots and pans. Hiroshi feels good now that Grundgetta's better, so Oscar and the kids make more noise to sour his mood.
SCENE 5 Hiroshi has a headache of his own now and goes back to his studio for some quiet. It is disrupted by a Honker, who honks much too loud. Hiroshi recommends he write down what he has to say instead of honking. The Honker first writes in honk, then in duck, cueing the presence of the duck once more.
