SCENE 1
Baby Bear finds Telly and Elmo and introduces them to "the coolest thing in the whole, wide world" - an empty porridge container. The monsters are unimpressed and confused, believing he should simply throw it away like regular, empty containers. However, Baby Bear shows them what he can do with it - use it as a bongo. The monsters' interest is piqued and want container-bongos of their own. Baby Bear takes them to his cottage, where they have plenty more empty containers.
