Picture Segment Description

COLD OPEN
The scene begins with a logo: the words "Telly's Town" take up the screen, as a rainbow trail rotates behind them. Telly chants, "Telly's Town! Telly's Town! Music time! Excellent!" and mimics a guitar solo. Telly invites Big Bird to join him in his "totally amazing, excellent music video show." Big Bird tries doing what Telly did at the beginning, and succeeds. Telly explains that the show's vocabulary consists of terms like "cool," "excellent," "hey dude," and of course "excellent."

SCENE 1
Big Bird wonders if all they do on the show is say its name, but Telly explains that they'll have excellent videos and live musical guests. He then announces today's guests: the Four Tuba Guys! He and Big Bird perform the show's theme as a fanfare.

SCENE 1
cont'd
The Four Tuba Guys don't show up, but instead Telly and Big Bird find themselves face to face with a deliveryman, Wayne (Mike Myers). Wayne has a telegram from the Four Tuba Guys, which Telly is dying to hear. Before he reads it, however, Wayne makes a long speech about how excellent it is that there is such a thing as reading. The telegram from the band says their plane has been delayed, and they will now be traveling by train.
