SCENE 1 Celina welcomes the viewer, when Elmo rushes to her, asking her what's today's letter of the day. He hopes it's the letter E, the first letter in his name. He politely shouts above, when a voice (Martin P. Robinson) responds that today's letter is O. Elmo is upset, but gets an idea on how to change it. He grabs a rag and wipes the onscreen O away, and tries drawing an E in its place. The voice points out the letter will remain O, despite Elmo's efforts. Elmo is determined to find another way.
