SCENE 1
Big Bird welcomes the viewer to Sesame Street, and spots a cute little Scottish terrier by the Furry Arms Hotel. He goes over to investigate, but the terrier resents being treated like a little puppy. After all, she's Renata Scottie, the world-renowned dog opera singer. She sings operas, which are stories set to opera music. She's sung works by canine greats such as Poochini, Wag-ner, and Johan Sebastian Bark. She's come to Sesame Street to look for a piano player; her singing would sound better if she had one. She wants one who knows all kinds of music, and likes dogs. Big Bird wonders, "Who do I know like that?"
