Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1
Big Bird and Telly wonder why Wolfgang the Seal won't stop barking. Mr. Handford remembers that yesterday he put up a sign in the Hooper's Store window that says "Special today: FISH" ... but that was yesterday's special, which means Hooper's is out of fish. Since fish are Wolfgang's favorite thing in the world, Big Bird wonders how to get him one. Luckily, Big Bird's friends Colin and Marlee are about to go fishing right now, so they let him come along with them. Big Bird leaves, promising to bring a fish back to Wolfgang.
