Big Bird welcomes the viewer to Sesame Street, and finds Professor D. Rabbit sitting there, listening. The professor offers to teach Big Bird how to be a super listener, and Big Bird opens his ears. They hear something squeaking, then someone singing. It turns out to be Mr. Macintosh, who wheels the old cart of fresh produce, and stops to give the professor a carrot. The professor remarks, "Some people listen for the ice cream man; I listen for the carrot man!" Big Bird listens as the professor crunches loudly on his carrot.
