SCENE 1 At the park, Big Bird welcomes the viewer to Sesame Street. A princess comes by, looking for her prince, thinking Big Bird is him at first. She gives him a kiss, thinking he'll turn back into her prince, but it doesn't happen. Just then, a crown-wearing chicken comes by. She kisses it, and it turns into the prince! Big Bird learns that they were playing a game of "Magical Hide-and-Seek," which involves hiding from each other by turning into different things, with the help of the royal magician. The prince and princess summon the royal magician, and ask him to make the game a little harder (finding a chicken was too easy). Big Bird asks to play, so the magician lets him (and the viewer). With a spell and a puff of smoke, the princess is gone, hiding somewhere on Sesame Street as ... something beginning with the letter T.
