Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 Ruthie relaxes outside Finders Keepers, welcoming the viewer. Snuffy arrives, moaning in pain. He tells Ruthie he's hurt his foot this morning trying to move his dresser; a drawer fell on his foot. He reports that the doctor said he'll be fine, nothing's broken. He then tries some new ways of walking, so his foot won't hurt when he walks. Ruthie advises him to sit down and rest his foot on a chair. He tries it, but on Ruthie's lap instead. Celina and Lexine pass by and remind him it's time for dance class, but how can he dance with a sore foot?
Film A dance class does some stretching exercises, then dance in their own ways, ending with the tango (instrumental: "Naughty Door Opera").

SCENE 2 Snuffy is upset at the prospect of missing dance class. Lexine points out he'd be able to use his back legs to dance, which makes Snuffy happy.

Insert Telly impatiently waits for Kingston Livingston III to finish writing his latest story - "The King Who Couldn't Read." He hands it off to Carlo to read aloud.
In the story, Kingston plays an African king, who is entirely dependent upon his royal helpers to do everything for him. His Royal Reader helps him read a STOP sign (which helps them avoid some stampeding horses) and a DANGER sign (which saves them from a falling piano). One day, the Royal Reader calls in sick and the King is unable to read any signs, putting himself in much pain. He eventually gets some lessons from the Royal Reader and soon, he can read the signs on his own and learn how to do other things by reading books.
