SCENE 1 Big Bird welcomes the viewer in the wee hours of the morning. He likes to listen to the sounds of people waking up, such as Gordon's alarm clock and baby Gabi crying. Suddenly, some farm animals begin to flock into his nest area, followed by Old MacDonald. He tells Big Bird that he wanted a change of scenery from the farm and has brought all his animals to live in the city. He feels like having breakfast, so Big Bird leads him to Hooper's Store.

SCENE 2 Gina introduced to Old MacDonald, who consults the newspaper to find any availible apartments for him and his animals. The first listing he reads is for a studio that welcomes pets. He believes this is perfect and rounds up the animals to scope it out. Gina is skeptical, while Big Bird sings, "Old MacDonald had a studio apartment..."

SCENE 3 Bob now meets Old MacDonald as they return from the apartment. The landlord wouldn't rent to them, as "pets" pertains more to dogs and cats. But, he has a plan - he's placed "DOG" signs on all the animals and has them try to bark. Gina points out how the plan won't work. Bob has to head off to a music lesson and Old MacDonald invites himself and his crew (it helps him think).

SCENE 4 In Bob's apartment, Telly is ready for his tuba lesson. He tries to play "London Bridge," but is constantly interrupted by the animals making their usual noises. Telly thinks of a compromise by playing "Old MacDonald," which the animals sing along to.

SCENE 5 In the yard, Bob, Telly and the kids play "Old MacDonald" as he and the animals sing. The song has made him homesick and he decides to return to the farm. He promises to visit one day again and Gina responds that the street folk should do the same.

SCENE 6 At Hooper's, Bob wonders who might show up on the street next. Sure enough, Little Miss Muffet appears and orders some curds and whey. She gets frightened away by the spider soon after.
