SCENE 1 Telly and Baby Bear introduce the viewer to the word "HOT," which is exactly how it feels on Sesame Street. They point out the ways you can tell it's so hot and think of a way to cool down. Telly thinks they should see a movie in a nice, air-conditioned theater, but Baby Bear has another idea - sell hot porridge, a dream of his since his youth. Telly insists nobody would buy hot porridge on a hot day, but Baby Bear assures him, "If I make it, they will come."
