Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 Snuffy has a new book - The Treasure of Snuffleupagus Island - and wants to read it, though his little sister Alice wants to play. Snuffy begins to sing about his love for books (to the tune of "Home on the Range"). After his song, Alice starts sitting on his book and won't move because she wants to play with Snuffy.

SCENE 3 Snuffy invents a game to get Alice to move - the "Stand Up, Sit Down and Run Around Game." Alice does just as the title instructs her and runs off the book, only to return moments later.
SCENE 4 Snuffy is fed up with Alice and decides he has only one option: push her off. He charges at her like a bull (complete with a bull fight score), but can't bring himself to make contact.
Film A ONE WAY sign switches sides. (Maria voiceover)
SCENE 5 Alice sees how upset Snuffy is and finally gets off his book. Snuffy reads it aloud to her as Telly Monster announces the sponsors.
