Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN Telly and Oscar come across a magic lamp at Finders Keepers, but while playing tug-of-war with it, they accidentally rub it, and out poofs a genie (Cheech Marin)! He has a happy reunion with his old friend Ruthie, and they do their familiar "Shout!" inspired dance.

SCENE 1 Telly and Oscar both rubbed the magic lamp, which means they have to share their three wishes. By accident, they each wish their personalities were switched around, and the Genie grants their wish. Ruthie tells him to reverse the wish, and he does so. He reports to Telly and Oscar that they now have one wish left, which they'll have to share, or else the Genie will have to return to his lamp, which he hates being inside. Oscar, being a Grouch, refuses to share his wish with Telly; this makes the Genie sad, then angry. Oscar leaves for his trash can, and Ruthie tells the Genie to get his guitar - she has a plan.
