Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1
Big Bird, Gabi, Miles and Lexine play "Follow the Leader" in the park (with Big Bird leading), and suddenly spot a butterfly. Big Bird thinks the butterfly wants to play with them, but the kids don't think a butterfly could play the game. Big Bird argues that they shouldn't be prejudiced against butterflies, and so the kids agree to let the butterfly be the leader.

SCENE 2
Big Bird and the kids follow the butterfly into a different section of the park they've never visited before. While they aren't looking, it lands on a statue, and they suddenly hear sad violin music playing. They inspect the statue, and see that the statue is playing the violin. It can also talk, and the figure reveals that she feels useless being a statue. Lexine thinks the statue is pretty to look at, and Big Bird points out that the birds can sit on her. Now she feels happy to be a statue, and plays happy-sounding music.

SCENE 3
The butterfly leads Big Bird and the kids to yet another section of the park. Miles still doesn't believe that the butterfly is really playing with them, but Gabi and Lexine are starting to agree with Big Bird - after all, if an 8-foot tall bird can play "Follow the Leader," why not a butterfly? Big Bird starts naming the people he'll tell about his experience when he gets back to Sesame Street, and remembers that Linda is deaf. He realizes he doesn't know how to say "butterfly" in sign language, and Miles and Gabi doubt that the butterfly knows either. Just then, the butterfly flies up to the screen and shows a film sequence of a girl saying the word "butterfly" in sign language. (EKA: Episode 3395)
