SCENE 1 Nina is clearing out the storage room of the Bicycle Shop, when Oscar happens by. He stakes a claim on all of her old junk and asks that she have it brought to his trash can immediately. Nina decides she needs to hire some movers and calls up "The Three Pigs Movers." Only one pig shows up, as high demand for their services has left them pigless. So, she's gotten some outside hires - Ovejita (winner of their "Pig for a Day" contest) and Cookie Monster (who is promised a cookie for his services).

Muppets Super Grover 2.0
A group of penguins begin their dance practice, but a large ice block is in the way. Super Grover 2.0 arrives in the Super-Grovermobile to help. Using his powers of observation, he sees the ice block is in the way of the problem, but learns it is the problem. Now with his powers of investigation, he tickles the ice to see if it will move. A penguin suggests pushing it, but Grover declares it as his own idea and tries to push, with no success. He makes a bigger push (running into it), but doesn't move. While he goes to get some useful technology, the penguins notice the Super-Grovermobile is big and heavy like the ice, but it can move with the help of wheels. While Grover begins to whack the ice with a golf club to move it, the penguins take his wheels (and his golf club) and stick them under the ice, making it easy to move. As the penguins dance off, Grover wonders why his car won't move. (edited)
