SCENE 2 Snuffy tries to make up an excuse for not wanting to play on the playground, claiming he needs to find something specific for his mommy: a giant hat with flowers, a bow and a letter S on it. Sure enough, a hat vendor (Fran Brill) happens by with that exact hat.
Animation Airplanes carve the capital and lowercase S.
(First: Episode 3214)
SCENE 3 Having purchased the hat, Snuffy's mom arrives and Big Bird presents her with it, though she has no idea what they're talking about. Big Bird realizes Snuffy was lying, making him admit why he doesn't want to play on the playground: he's too big to do anything. Big Bird drags him along anyway, certain they'll find something.
Song "Playground Map Song"

SCENE 4 Big Bird leads Snuffy to the swing set, but he proves he's too big to fit on it. Big Bird can and Snuffy can still push him, though he'd much rather prefer some other activity.

(First: Episode 3403)
SCENE 5 The two move onto the slide, but Snuffy can't even get up the ladder.

SCENE 6 Big Bird finally brings Snuffy to the see-saw, but Big Bird is unable to move it with Snuffy sitting on the other end. They discover his snuffle is light enough to rest on the seat and they enjoy seesawing ("My snuffle is having the time of its life"!). They then announce the sponsors.
