SCENE
Alan invites Big Bird into Hooper's Store to watch the Worm Cup games on his TV set. The audience consists of a few kids, and even some worms with their own miniature tables and vans. The worm audience is split into two groups: one from France, and one from the USA. Alan explains to Big Bird that the objective of the Worm Cup games is to kick a ball into a cup the most times. Worms from all over the world are competing for the cup, including Slimey.

SCENE

Alan turns on the TV. The event is hosted by Lotta Chatter, and the two finalists are Slimey, representing the USA, and Squirmadine, representing France (hence the French worm audience). Before they begin, Chatter explains how the game is played, and presents a flashback reel of the past rounds of the game (a lesson in subtraction).

At Hooper's, Big Bird feels uneasy when he notices that the two worm groups are rooting for one worm contestant each. Alan reassures him that he can root for whatever worm he wants, so he feels comfortable cheering for Slimey.

SCENE

The game is on! Squirmadine is up for the first kick, which Slimey will try to block. Slimey fails to keep the ball from going into the cup, which means one point for Squirmadine. Slimey then gets his turn, but Squirmadine taunts Slimey by saying "Nyah nyah nyah!" and laughing in his face. Slimey storms off the field and talks to his coach, Oscar the Grouch, who calls a time-out. Squirmadine's coach, Monsieur Depabois, denies Oscar's accusation, but the teasing was caught on tape, and is shown in an instant replay. The referee lets Squirmadine off with a warning, and Oscar tells Slimey to do his personal worm best.

It's Slimey's turn. He kicks the ball, and it goes directly into the cup, which means he and Squirmadine are tied. Squirmadine gets his turn again, and Slimey blocks the ball from going into the cup! Alan feels sympathetic towards the disappointed French worms: "Tough break, guys."

SCENE

It's Slimey's turn again. He uses his scrunch-kick to launch the ball, and it lands in the cup! Slimey has won the Worm Cup - or has he? The ball suddenly bounces out of the cup (a first in Worm Cup history)! By now, Alan and Big Bird are caught up in the game, shouting at the TV. The bounce is shown again in an instant replay.

SCENE
cont'd
Slimey feels really sad about coming within a ball's kick of winning this year's cup. To make matters worse, Squirmadine continues to taunt Slimey. Slimey gets so angry, he crawls over to Squirmadine, and uses physical assault on him! Slimey's fans are astonished - this doesn't sound like the worm they know. Slimey's assault is shown again in an instant replay, and the referee kicks Slimey out of the game, making Squirmadine the winner by default.

SCENE

Oscar talks to Slimey about what he did. He explains that no matter how angry you get, it's better to use your words than to use physical assault - "This is the Worm Cup, not the Grouch Cup." In a bold move of sportswormship, the rivals apologize to each other, and hug.

SCENE

Alan wishes he could see this historic event up close, and Big Bird points out that they can - they're only a stone's throw away from Oscar's trash can! They wave to the worms, who agree to share the cup. Lotta Chatter signs off, and the Grouch coaches argue lightly.
