SCENE 1 Some kids play with a dog in the arbor, while a frog watches in awe. Over in Hooper's Store, Chris greets the viewer as he serves Elmo and Abby his new soup recipe. The frog enters the store and orders some dog food, claiming to be a dog named Fido. He naturally has difficulty trying to eat the doggy treat Chris serves him. Everyone tries to convince him that he's really a frog, forcing Chris to pull out his tablet so they can get confirmation from a special frog-themed app. They even bring in Wolfy, the dog from earlier, to compare bodies. Fido finally concedes that he's a frog and Chris shows off the different habitats frogs live in. Elmo theorizes that Fido doesn't have one of his own, thus tied to find a different identity. Everyone sings about finding him a new habitat.

SCENE 1 cont'd Fido now tries living in a tree, but his fear of heights kicks in almost immediately. Abby discerns that Fido might like something in between wet and dry, like mud. Oscar overhears and provides them with a small tray of his top-grade mud. Fido gets a feel for it and instantly takes to it, making it the perfect habitat for him. "A frog after my own heart," observes Oscar.
