SCENE 1
Telly and his Uncle Talbot are selling his home-made “Happy Caps” in the arbor. What makes them “happy” is that the extra long peak of the cap will keep one’s feet protected on a sunny day. They try to sell one to Carlo, but he’s already got a normal cap. Uncle Talbot must leave to make more and makes Telly wear his cap the whole day, for promotional purposes. Elmo comes by, having heard about Telly’s new cap. Telly turns to respond, but the cap’s peak whacks Elmo and knocks him out cold.

They begin playing “One of These Things” with three number 15s and a letter O. Elmo knows the answer and Telly turns to ask him what it is, knocking him down again. Elmo moans “Ohhhhh”, leading Telly to believe the letter O is the answer. He picks Elmo up, who tells him to take the hat before he faints again.

SCENE 5
Telly has finally taken his cap off, now siding with Elmo on how silly it is. He hears his uncle coming and fears he will be upset when he hears about his opinion of the hat. Telly tells his uncle there’s a problem with his cap. Talbot thinks it’s the price when Telly physically demonstrates what’s wrong to his uncle (whacking him in the face with the peak). Talbot isn’t angry, but rather proud that Telly could fess up. He leaves to go fix the problem with his caps.
