SCENE 6
Telly brings Baby Bear outside Big Bird’s nest because Big Bird and Snuffy too have a gift prepared. But, when they enter, they reveal that they have written a poem for him, but haven’t finished it yet. They read through, until the end where they’re missing a rhyme for “end.” Telly suggests “shplend”, when Baby Bear points out the poem is fine as it is. They then realize the missing rhyme is “friend!” Telly vows to make something better than “shplend” for Baby Bear.
