Picture Segment Description

COLD OPEN
A Doozy bug crawls across a crate in the courtyard. Roxie Marie tells Elmo to get out of her way, because she wants to follow the bug. Elmo wants to help her chase it, but she says he can't because he'll be in the way. He promises not to get in the way, but it's hard for him to keep that promise ...

SCENE 1
Roxie has set out some books about bugs (including one about Bugs Bunny), one of which is bound to have information about the Doozy bug. Maria points out that some bugs are dangerous, which Roxie is already aware of. They search through the stack of books, and look inside the last one, All About Bugs. Roxie learns that the Doozy bug has 7 legs, lives only on Sesame Street, uses a pogo stick to get around, wears a feathery hat, and whistles through its nose. Its favorite food is corn on the cob, and its hobbies are building with blocks, using a typewriter, and playing the guitar. Just then, they spot the very bug they've been reading about, and Roxie struggles to get Elmo out of her way so she can chase it.

SCENE 2
Roxie Marie lets Elmo borrow her bug net, but makes it clear that the bug she's going after belongs to her, not Elmo. After she goes away, Elmo hears the sounds of typing on a typewriter and guitar playing. He also spots a stack of giant blocks in the courtyard. He remembers that the Doozy bug likes all of these things, so he rushes over to the courtyard, thinking the bug is there. Instead of catching the bug, he learns that the blocks belong to Telly, Luis was playing the guitar, and Gordon was using a typewriter. Just then, Roxie spots the bug on the same crate she saw him on before, and tells Elmo to give her the net, but he looks in the wrong direction for it ...

Roxie has set up a trail to lead the bug towards her, using Gordon's typewriter, Luis's guitar, and a plate of corn on the cob. She thinks she has succeeded in trapping the bug, but it was Elmo who fell into the trap (he wanted to see what it felt like to be a bug). Suddenly, they hear the bug become lured into the typewriter and the guitar, and see it stop by the corncobs. Roxie throws her net over the bug, who remarks, "I am not amused ..."
