COLD OPEN
Telly Monster is on the Spot and he is covering an alphabet problem. The letter Z wants to be the first letter of the alphabet, believe it or not, because Z is tired of being the last letter of the alphabet. The letter A asks the letter Z to go back to the end of the alphabet. The letter Z wants to be the first letter of the alphabet, if it's the last thing he'll do.

SCENE 1
The letter Z is still complaining about being first, since A is always first. Maria and two kids come out of Hooper's Store, since they heard the news about the alphabet. The letter A asks the kids to sing the alphabet to show that Z is last and A is first. Z says that it's the first letter of the alphabet and Telly asks Maria if that is possible. A likes being first and doesn't want to change. Z starts to cry. Maria reminds the letter Z that you can be first at something else, words. But apparently, the letter Z is quitting the alphabet.

Film
A girl goes to school somewhere in Africa. We see the girl getting ready to go to school, as she washes herself and brushes her teeth, puts on her clothes, brushes her hair, and takes her lunch, all with some help from her mother. We see her walking past her neighbors and watching her classmates play outside as she arrives at school. The bell rings and the girl enters the school, where the teacher is passing out chalk to her students. We see the teacher teaching the students the English words: "a boy", "a girl", "a man", "a woman," which she has written on the board, along with a drawing for each word. The students repeat the words, then write them down on their individual chalkboards as we hear the girl remark, "We are learning to read and write." The students then jump up and down, as the teacher looks on, smiling. Next, we see the students jumping outside excitedly, now that school has finished.

SCENE 2
Telly is in Hooper's Store with the letter Z and Mr. Handford. Telly tells the letter Z that it has to come back, even though it won't be first and Z denies the offer. Besides, Z wants to be the first letter in words, like eggs. Mr. Handford says that E is the first letter in eggs and Z can't be the first letter in it. The letter Z puts itself in front of the E and makes the word zeggs. A Fat Blue lady comes and asks for zeggs and says that she doesn't mean eggs because the sign says zeggs, but Hooper's doesn't have zeggs and goes off to the zupermarket and the letter Z runs off to try to catch up with her.
