SCENE 1
Big Bird, Snuffy and Zoe welcome the viewer to Sesame Street, and Big Bird announces that they're going to play the Really Big Thing Game today. The object of the game is to find really big things on a specific list. Big Bird isn't sure that Zoe will like the game, because she's little instead of big, but she thinks she'll have fun. The first thing they must find on the list is a really big triangle. Zoe immediately goes off to find one.

Two of them are found in the bridgework, and the man uses the bridgekeeper's staff to draw a third triangle in the dirt. Although the bridgekeeper has his order filled, he asks the man to play a tune on his accordion. This additional request takes the young man by surprise, but he is told to do so for the opportunity to cross the bridge.
