Big Bird goes on a trip to the beach, where Granny Bird lives, and gets homesick. He meets a boy named Wally there. Wally has his own special cave, which inspires Big Bird to tell him about his friend Mr. Snuffleupagus. Wally and Big Bird become friends -- playing catch in the water, digging in the sand, and sharing a popsicle every day. Also appearing are Ernie, Bert, Grover, Cookie Monster, and Oscar the Grouch.
