SCENE 1
Telly Monster, Maria and Gabi welcomes the viewer to Sesame Street. Gabi is writing postcards to her grandparents in New Mexico and her abuela in Puerto Rico all by herself. Her postcards to her grandparents and grandmother both read: "How are you? I'm fine. Mami and papi say hola. Love, Gabi." Gabi's postcards has addresses on them, but they need some postage stamps. Telly learns how a stamp is used on each one of Gabi's postcards to her grandparents and her abuela. Gabi asked Telly to put on a stamp on one of her postcards, but Telly thought he couldn't do it. Telly was nervous at first, but by wetting a stamp a little bit and putting it on one of Gabi's postcards, he finally got the hang of putting the stamps on Gabi's postcards. In fact, he decided to put stamps on everything on Sesame Street and declares himself, "Telly Monster: Stamp Putter-Onner". Maria asked, "Stamp Putter-Onner?" and Gabi replies, "This should be very interesting".

He pictures it as he puts postage stamps on letters and packages for people from all over the world. Maria still think it just won't work out, until a Green Anything Muppet girl comes by and reads Telly's sign for postage stamps, but she doesn't want Telly to put postage stamps on her mail, because she naturally does it herself.

Telly began to feel very extremely nervous about nobody coming to ask him to put postage stamps on their mail, but luckily, Gabi has an very good idea...
