Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 Telly is the sole attendee of today's meeting of the Triangle Lover's Club. The Grand High Triangle Lover is disappointed and sad, having noticed less and less members with each meeting. He, Telly and Norm wonder "Where Have All The Triangle Lovers Gone?" They notice others have found new love for other shapes. The GHTL orders Telly to recruit new members, or else he'll have to shut down the club for good. Telly sets off on his mission, bringing Norm for support.

SCENE 2 Telly and Norm come across Elmo and try to convince him to join. Elmo doesn't seem to love triangles, except for Telly's triangular hat.

The GHTL checks on their progress and Telly tries to calm him down as he cries of doom.
