SCENE 1
Maria finishes her work at the Fix-it Shop, and welcomes the viewer to Sesame Street. She's about to spend time with Big Bird, when he comes by and introduces her to Mr. and Mrs. Bird, and their Baby Bird. The Bird parents need a babysitter, and they're here because Big Bird recommended Maria to them. She adores Baby Bird, but isn't sure how to take care of one. Big Bird, who's only six years old, can't be the babysitter, but can help Maria ... so she obliges. The parents leave them with a long list of instructions.
