SCENE 1
Telly says he will do many things while bouncing on his pogo stick today: first he'll welcome the viewer to Sesame Street, then he'll announce the letter and number of the day, then say the alphabet. Zoe wants to try the pogo stick, so Telly lets her, but warns her that pogo-sticking takes a lot of practice. To his surprise, she turns out to be a fast learner! Telly tells her she can give him back his pogo stick, but Zoe insists that she needs to practice (even though she's already good at it). She even intends to do all the things Telly wanted to do while bouncing, which upsets Telly. She welcomes the viewer to Sesame Street, and he chases after her.

SCENE 5
Still unable to get his pogo stick back, Telly asks Gordon for help. Before Gordon can answer, Oscar offers his own pogo stick to Telly. It's specifically designed for Grouches - it's bent, it's slippery, there's a fish on each handlebar, and when it boings, it makes a loud honking sound. However, beggars can't be choosers, so Telly accepts Oscar's offer - he just has to catch up with Zoe before she says the alphabet while boinging, which he wanted to do.

Just then, Homer Honker comes by and gets in Telly's way, attracted to the honking noise that the Grouch pogo stick makes. Telly tries to point out the difference between Homer and the pogo stick, but Homer still won't listen. Zoe bounces by, counts to 10, and bounces away, and the chase resumes.

Telly explains to her that he's been trying all day to get it back from her, and how upset he is that she beat him to the punch on all the things he wanted to do today. She apologizes, and gives it back to him, but then she realizes that she doesn't have a pogo stick anymore. To everyone's surprise (and Oscar's dismay), she is also good at bouncing on the Grouch pogo stick. Telly chases after her on his own pogo stick, this time for fun.
