Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1
Big Bird and Snuffy are hosts of "The Alphabet Game," where contestants can win prizes for saying the alphabet. Gordon, the first involuntary contestant, has to say the alphabet with one hand behind his back and one eye closed, while dancing with a chicken ... in about 15 seconds. This is difficult for him, because he's carrying a grocery bag, but he takes on the task anyway, and wins dancing lessons with the chicken.

The next contestant, Zoe, would rather count than say the alphabet (which she already did with Elmo several times just now). Thus, the Alphabet Game is switched to the Counting Game, in which Zoe has to count to 20, with her hands over her head, without laughing, before the chicken (in a hospital maternity outfit) lays an egg! She does so, and wins!
