SCENE 1 Uncle Wally welcomes the viewer to Sesame Street. Telly appears to tell Uncle Wally that The Grand High Triangle Lover is coming to Sesame Street today. Telly doesn't know why he is, but just then he appears with his dim-witted assistant Norman. The Grand High Triangle Lover tells Telly that he's thinking that he'd be "The Triangle Lover of the Year." All Telly has to do is show him how much he loves triangles by the time he and Norman get back. They exit, and Telly wonders what to do. He then decides to get his tuba.
