Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 Big Bird plays his favorite game with the kids - Duck Duck Goose. When it's his turn to be "it," the kids are all called off by their coach for practice, leaving Big Bird without anyone to play with. Zoe happens by and offers to play it with him, but the game doesn't work well with two people. They then meet Winny, who has moved to the neighborhood from England. She suggests they play pirates, though Big Bird hopes they can still play Duck Duck Goose after.
Song Joe Raposo sings "Dressed Up."

SCENE 2 The trio turns the jungle gym into their pretend pirate ship and create their pirate aliases - Winny is "Black Beard," Zoe is "Blue Beard" and Big Bird is "No Beard." They sail the seas until they reach land, where Big Bird believes the game is over and they can move onto his game. Winny points out they still need to find their treasure and leaves to retrieve her map.
