Tim Robbins arrives at Sesame Street, and Big Bird and Snuffy try to guess who he's looking for. It's not Bob, Alice, or Gabi, but Prairie Dawn. When she shows up, he becomes star-struck, mentioning some of his favorite Prairie Dawn pageants, and she invites him to watch the rehearsal of her newest pageant. He accepts, and they all follow Prairie to the arbor. Snuffy and Big Bird are glad they were able to help Tim out.
