SCENE 1
Big Bird and Snuffy welcome the viewer to Sesame Street, and find the arbor full of animals, who are gathered for the Animal Film Festival. Big Bird and Snuffy want to say the alphabet, but before they can, the festival's master of ceremonies, the elephant, introduces a series of elephant films. He sees if there are any questions; Snuffy asks how long the show will last, and they find out that it's happening all day long, which means they have to find something else to do besides say the alphabet.
