Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1
Bob is about to read Elmo and some kids the story of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears," when Baby Bear alerts them that Goldilocks is on vacation. When he suggests the story of the Three Little Pigs instead, the Big Bad Wolf objects because the pigs are busy too. Baby Bear suggests that maybe Big Bad could be Goldilocks today, and they seem to like the idea. They go off to prepare for the story.
