Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN Telly introduces the sponsors for today while walking with Gordon. Oscar points out that today, Slimey will perform a new trick - he'll dive into the swimming pool in the trash can all the way from the playground. Gordon is skeptical and leads Telly to the playground so they can see how this will work, while Oscar bugs Grundgetta over their walkie-talkies.

SCENE 1 At the playground, Slimey gets into position. Grundgetta explains how the trick will work - Slimey sits on one end of the see-saw and when Jenna see-saws down, Slimey will be flung in the air toward the trash can. After the countdown, Gordon pushes Jenna down on the see-saw and Slimey goes flying...onto Telly's head. Grundgetta blames him for Slimey's failure, but Telly points out he wouldn't have gone far any way, but he's still proud of Slimey for his first try.
