Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1
At the Fix-It Shop, a blind girl welcomes the viewer to Sesame Street. Maria finishes fixing a radio, and reassures Telly that she's not "hurting" the radio because it is not alive - although sound comes out of it. She turns the radio on, and finds that it is tuned to a canine station, WUFF, where the announcers make a reference to Maria's recent explanation to Telly.

SCENE 2
Maria explains to Telly that radio is not the same as television because it has no picture. The two aren't much different to the blind girl, who can't see, but can only hear. They all tune in to WUFF to listen to today's broadcast of "Puppy Dog Tales," which features the story of Old Mother Hubbard. As Terry Terrier narrates, Telly uses his imagination to picture the story, and soon becomes hungry for a box of Fido's Favorites (the program's sponsor).

At station WUFF, Terry Terrier and co-host Annie Afghan introduce a game of Name That Sound, which Telly decides to participate in. He calls 1-800-BOW-WOW, and identifies the sounds of things dogs like to chase - a fire truck, a cat, and Annie chasing her tail (but doesn't get the last one). He doesn't mind not winning the prize, since it was a chew-bone.
