He invites Big Bird to sing on the show, which will be taping from Sesame Street later that night. Big Bird soon finds he's nervous and Skip allows him to sit out, but if he feels like going onstage and sing, he may. Big Bird eventually works up the nerve and performs a special song by his Granny Bird, moving Skip and the others. Skip initially turns away Chris (a big fan of the show), as contestants must be birds, but eventually lets him on, wearing a large bird costume.
The puppet was previously used as the Log Bird, with an added hairpiece.
