SCENE
Zoe introduces us to Rocko, whom she thinks of as the best pet in the whole wide world, and sings "He's the Best Pet." Telly comes by and greets them. He makes a pun about what Rocko would be if he could sing: a rock singer! Zoe points out to Telly that Rocko is singing, and reiterates that "He's the Best Pet." Telly begs to differ, and rushes off to get his own pet.

SCENE, cont'd
Telly displays his pet hamster, Chuckie Sue, claiming "She's the Best Pet" - she's athletic, funny, and can count to 20 by 2's. Zoe doesn't believe that a hamster can count, and claims that Rocko can sing the alphabet - which is what Zoe does. She says Rocko was singing in his head, just like Chuckie Sue was.

SCENE, cont'd
Telly and Zoe get into an argument over whether a rock has a head, when Elmo shows up. Elmo would rather say hi to Chuckie Sue than to Rocko. Elmo learns that they're arguing over whose pet is the best, and attempts to settle the argument by bringing his own pet, Dorothy. Elmo believes "She's the Best Pet" because she can swim, breathe underwater, and imagine Elmo as any animal, such as a dog or a fish.

SCENE, cont'd
Zoe says Rocko has an active imagination too, and tells Rocko to imagine all three of them in a spaceship. As usual, no one sees Rocco's "fantasy" (or believes it) except Zoe. All three of them resume the argument, but then pretend that it upsets their pets to hear them argue, and decide they want to stop. Telly has a cure for that: agreement that Chuckie Sue is the best pet.

SCENE, cont'd
The argument carries on until Baby Bear shows up and whistles to get everyone's attention. Once he learns what they're arguing about, he gets a good look at each of their pets, quickly rushes off, and brings his own pet parrot, Ralphie. Baby Bear thinks "He's the Best Pet" because he can make other animal noises besides his own (however he gets them mixed up).

SCENE, cont'd
Feeling defensive towards their pets' honor, everyone resumes the argument once again, until Maria shows up. Maria settles the conflict by convincing them that each one of them has the best pet for them. They notice the pets saying hello to each other (though Ralphie is the only one with a voice). Telly gets the idea of setting up a pet playdate for the pets, and everyone agrees it would be a good idea. Maria remarks, "You know, these are some pretty smart pets." The scene ends with a reprise of the song, "They're the Best Pets."
