Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1
Big Bird displays today's sponsors on a card, while Telly frets about his hamster, Chuckie, who hasn't been moving for a week, or running on his hamster wheel. Big Bird thinks Chuckie needs a laugh, so he and Telly try to elicit one out of him by singing "Rubber Chuckie," which doesn't work. They remember that Gina is studying to be a veterinarian, and call her over.

Gina asks Telly some questions about Chuckie's state. Finally, she asks if Chuckie has been around any other hamsters lately. Telly recalls that last month Chuckie played with Elizabeth's hamster Herman, and Gina breaks it to Telly that Chuckie is going to have babies. Telly is surprised to learn that Chuckie is a girl, and even more surprised that the babies could be born any minute now! In a panic, he calls for a taxi.

SCENE 3
A taxi arrives, but the taxi driver assures Telly that a visit to the hospital is not necessary for hamsters: like Gina, she had a pet hamster when she was a kid, and it did just fine staying in its cage. Gina and Big Bird then help Telly make a list of what the baby hamsters will need. He leaves, and tells Chuckie not to have the babies until he gets back.
