Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1
Telly welcomes the viewer to Sesame Street while he waits for his best friend Baby Bear to return from his grandma's -- he hasn't seen him in a long time! Just then, Baby Bear sneaks up behind Telly and covers his eyes, and they reunite. Telly points out that Baby Bear's hair seems to be longer than usual. Baby Bear admits that his long hair is kind of bothersome, but when Telly suggests he get a haircut, Baby Bear declines, because he's never had a haircut before. His Papa Bear thinks he needs a haircut, too, and arrives looking for him, but Baby Bear ducks away.

SCENE 2
Telly doesn't understand why Baby Bear doesn't want a haircut. Baby Bear confirms with Gina, who's studying to be a veterinarian, that wild bears in the forest don't get haircuts, but Gina and Telly point out that Baby Bear is not really a wild bear in the forest. Baby Bear thinks his problem will be solved if he holds his hair back with both hands, but that makes it difficult for him to play catch with Gina and the kids.

SCENE 6
Papa's haircut is all finished, and he looks great! His hat even fits on his head! This makes Baby Bear a little more confident about getting a haircut. He sits in the barber chair, but notices it's a little too big for him, so Doug offers him the middle-sized chair, then the small chair (which is just right for him). He's nervous at first, but warms up to it when he sees for himself that getting his hair cut doesn't hurt!
