Back around 1973, the saga of Big Bird and Snuffy is real/imaginary was starting to gain momentum. Once Luis was outside the Fix-it Shop repairing an antique scale. Bird comes by, and Luis asks him to watch the scale while he gets something, "And don't let anything happen to it, Big Bird!" Well, Snuffy shuffles in, and wants to see how much he weighs. He puts one toe on the scale, and the dials spin and POW! CRASHBOOMBANG! the scale gets busted into a million pieces, with springs and gears flying everywhere. Snuffy decides he'd better exit stage left, leaving Bird to hold the bag. Luis comes back, sees what's left of the scale, and goes ballistic. "YOU BROKE MY SCALE, BIG BIRD!!!!" "But, it wasn't me,Luis! It was Mr. Snuffleupagus, who was.... just here!" Just what Luis wants to hear. "BIG BIRD, THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS A SNUFFLE%&(*@*#*$+}UPAGUS!!!!!" Meanwhile smoke is streaming out of Luis's ears, and he has a vein on the side of his head ready to explode. Big Bird beats a hasty retreat, and not a moment too soon. If Luis had his way, he would've served Bird up with cranberries and stuffing. He was THAT mad. Xerus, if you're out there, you'd probably be one of the few people as old as me to remember this one.
