Picture Segment Description

COLD OPEN Elmo mentions today's sponsors, and catches up with Big Bird, Snuffy, Savion, and Gina, because they're all going to see a movie today, called "Honey, I Shrunk the Snuffleupagus".

SCENE 1 At the movie theater, a couple discusses the movie they're about to see, and the husband points out that they came early to get good seats. Just then, the gang arrives at the theater, one by one, and the couple has to move one seat over every time someone sits in front of them. Once Snuffy comes in and reports that they're out of cabbage candy, the wife becomes furious, and the husband follows her out of the theater. Snuffy thinks they must really like cabbage candy.

SCENE 5 Back at Hooper's, the gang tells Mr. Handford how the movie was, though Snuffy and Gina didn't really see it, because Snuffy was too scared of it. They all reassure Snuffy that the movie had a happy ending, but when they describe it from the beginning (when the Snuffleupagus got smaller and smaller), Snuffy runs away in fear, and the gang follows him. Mr. Handford stays at the store and announces the sponsors.
