Picture Segment Description
SCENE 1 Telly places Stinky the Stinkweed out in the sun. Stinky sighs, wishing he didn't always have to depend on others to mobilize, especially when he's thirsty. He gives a passionate speech about his dream to move on his own.

SCENE 1 cont'd Telly imagines life as a plant and realizes what little fun it is; he wouldn't be able to get to Baby Bear's on his own and his friends are able to help him. Back in reality, Tarah wheels by, inspiring Telly to find a way Stinky can do the same.

SCENE 2 At the Fix-It Shop, Luis and Maria begin preparing Stinky's "plantmobile." Stinky changes his mind, believing rolling is too fast and too dangerous ("To me, standing still is pushing the speed limit!"). They place him in the back of Tarah's wheelchair to give him a taste of how it feels. Though he screams through the whole ride, he finds he actually likes it allows them to begin construction.
SCENE 3 The plantmobile is constructed and Stinky is excitedly placed in the seat. However, they haven't devised a way to actually make it move. He can't operate anything on it because he can't move any of his body parts...except for his mouth (which they realize as he complains). Tarah knows where they can get a mouth driving stick and Luis accompanies her to find one.

SCENE 4 With the stick in place, Tarah instructs Stinky on how he can use it to move. He practices going forward and backward and soon, he's driving himself all over the street! He tells them he'll use his new power of mobility to get some water at Hooper's Store, then head back to the Furry Arms to write a song about driving.
