SCENE 1
Big Bird finds Snuffy, who explains today's the Snuffleupagus-American Day Parade. It's a special event for his species to show how proud they are to be Snuffleupagus-Americans. Big Bird notices Snuffy's also in a grass skirt and marching in place. Snuffy claims he's practicing, but his two back feet won't march with him. The two try reasoning with his feet, who instead stomp in protest.

SCENE 2
Big Bird assembles some kids to show Snuffy's back feet how to march, but the feet instead tap dance and tango.

SCENE 3
Big Bird tries his next idea - politeness. The feet still refuse to listen and sit themselves down instead. "Not even Mr. Rogers can march sitting down," Snuffy moans, thinking he'll have to miss out on marching in the parade. Big Bird and the kids cooperate to pry Snuffy's back end from the ground. The plan works for a brief time, as the back legs sit themselves down again.

SCENE 4
As the crowd begins to assemble, Snuffy tells Alice she'll have to represent the both of them in the parade and gives her a stirring speech about the importance of being a Snuffleupagus-American. Alice has issues walking proud as her brother dictates, so Carlo uses a song to show her how to walk proud. The song inspires Snuffy's back legs to show how proud they are and he's able to march!

SCENE 5
Big Bird, Lexine and the kids have their own grass skirts, wishing to join the parade, but realize they can't if they're not Snuffleupaguses. Snuffy shows them how they can pretend to be ones, but it becomes obvious it won't work. Snuffy comes up with another way they can participate - representing Friends of Snuffleupaguses.
