SCENE 2
The jalopy arrives in Grouchytown, and Bob is amazed at what he sees. Oscar warns him that Grouchytown is the opposite of Sesame Street, in terms of location, mood, food, and several other things. Bob sees this for himself when a gang of grouches comes out of hiding and tells him to get lost. They sing a grouchy version of the Sesame Street Theme, which doesn't rhyme. Bob gets up and gets ready to take a picture of the grouches ("Frown!" he tells them), but they decline and go into hiding.

Bob continues to take pictures of Grouchytown, when suddenly he hears noises coming from the Break-it Shop, which he suddenly realizes is the opposite of the Fix-it Shop back on Sesame Street. A grouchy customer tells Velma that his toaster has a problem: "It's not dented and bwoken enough!" He gives it to her so she can break it, which she does, very loudly. Bob causes much commotion among the grouches when he sings a chorus of "People in Your Neighborhood."

SCENE 4
Oscar takes Bob to Worby's Store, which is the opposite of Hooper's Store back home. Oscar calls Worby out, and he agrees to give them some food if they get lost. The specials today are a sardine-blueberry sandwich, a pepper-marshmallow steak, and a tomato surprise (which they're out of). Bob doesn't want to eat anything at first, but Oscar reminds him that trying new foods is a part of the traveling experience. To everyone's surprise, Bob likes the sardine-blueberry sandwich when he tries it! Oscar reassures a distraught Worby, "He's only a tourist here; he doesn't know any better."

SCENE 5
Grouchytowner Otto wants to lead Bob to the stinkweed swamp, when Bob spots something that piques his curiosity: a nice-looking house, which looks like something out of a fairy tale. Bob knocks on the door, and is politely greeted by a bubbly human woman, "Nina the Nice" (Carol Kane). It suddenly dawns on Bob that the nice-human/grouch ratio here is also the opposite of Sesame Street's. She and Bob sing a syrupy song to the grouches, "That's How I Know You're Happy," even though the grouches don't feel that way.
