SCENE 1 Oscar the Grouch shows Maria a spray-bottle of a new product he's just bought from the Whole Grouch Catalog: Disappear-o, which turns anything that you spray it on invisible. He tried it on a teddy bear and some pretty flowers, and decides to spray it on himself. He sprays it on Maria by accident, and she instantly vanishes (yet her voice can still be heard). When Luis comes by to look for her, she proves that she's invisible by removing his hat from his head.

SCENE 3 Before Oscar sprays Fluffy with the Disappear-o, Luis stops him and protests. Oscar wanted to make Fluffy invisible so she could sneak up on people and squirt them with her trunk, which Luis doesn't think is funny. To Oscar's dismay, trunk-squirting happens to be the antidote for Disappear-o. Oscar doesn't want the same thing to happen to Maria, but he does get a kick out of watching her get squirted in the face. Maria thanks Fluffy by giving her a kiss, then she blows Oscar a kiss, then she and Luis kiss.
