Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 Maria is fixing the toaster of the Fairy Godmother. Maria finds it odd that she doesn't just fix it with magic; the Fairy Godmother replies that she only uses it for special occasions. For instance, she uses it right now to poof up her to-do list (without it, she'd be utterly lost with her priorities). Maria goes inside to work on it, while the Godmother goes off to do her errands.

SCENE 1 cont'd Big Bird walks by and notices her wand is left on the worktable. He assumes it's a toy belonging to Gabi and decides to keep watch of it, noticing how busy Maria is inside. He comes up with a spell for "a monster of a party" for Maria, when suddenly, some monsters appear in the Fix-It Shop and the whole store is turned into a party. Maria is confused and Big Bird, unaware that the spell actually worked, goes off.
SCENE 2 Maria asks the monsters how they got into the store. They're not sure, but are sure of one's still a fine time to party!

SCENE 2 cont'd Big Bird encounters Telly, who's feeling happy because he has his pogo stick to bounce on. Big Bird thinks everyone else would be happy if they had one too and casts another seemingly fake spell. Unbeknownst to him, Maria, the monsters and others are all now jumping on pogo sticks themselves!
SCENE 3 Big Bird comes up with another spell he'd try if the wand were real: to see some singing squirrels at a street sign. He waves the wand, conjuring up...
Muppets The Squirrelles sing "Da Don't Walk."
(EKA: Episode 3206)

SCENE 4 The Fairy Godmother walks in on the pogo stick monster party, which still won't end. Big Bird then enters and they see he has the magic wand. He returns so the Fairy Godmother can instead send the party monsters to her house. Since Maria hasn't had the time to fix her toaster either, she fixes that with magic too. She and Big Bird head off to the party, while Maria stays behind and announces the sponsors.
