Picture Segment Description
3451kazoo
SCENE 1
Zoe hears a piano and says she’s always wanted to play the piano. She goes to check it out, and finds Bob at the piano leading Luis, Ruthie and the kids in the Sesame Street Almost All Kazoo Band. They give her a kazoo, because it’s an instrument anybody can play. She can’t play it. She asks if she could play the piano, but since she’s never tried before, they think it will be too hard for her, and they encourage her to keep practicing the kazoo.
