If you do, you’ll both be late for work! This is Grouch paradise!” The adults realize that Oscar’s right: they’re not getting anywhere by arguing. So Susan and Gordon decide to wait for their bus and to drive tomorrow, to Oscar’s detriment.

Oscar bangs his head against the edge of his can in frustration: “Y’know, I could really use a bowl of hot sauce and corn flakes right now.”

    My 60th outline is a Jerry Nelson showcase. Later this month, it will have been four years since Jerry's passing. See how many of his characters you can find throughout this outline. RIP Jerry, and keep on entertaining the folks up in heaven for us. I'm sure you, Jim Henson, and Richard Hunt are doing a bang-up job.

    So...many of us on this forum know about Olivia, who was played by the late Alaina Reed. We've seen and heard clips of her powerful singing performances on Sesame Street ("It Feels Good When You Sing a Song" and "One Little Star," to name a few). I thought of a song that she would have hit out of the park, even though it definitely wouldn't have made its way onto the show at any point. Read on, and enjoy some antics from the Amazing Mumford, Big Bird, Susan, Gordon, Cookie Monster, and Ernie as well.

Mr. Hooper explains what happened earlier: he woke up and hit his head on the wall, missed his bus, got some gum stuck on his shoe while walking to the store, and spilled a quart of milk while serving breakfast to Susan. David reminds him that everyone has bad days, and that it’s okay to be angry about it. Eventually, Mr. Hooper realizes that he feels better having talked about his bad day.

    Scene 5: Big Bird, David, and Mr. Hooper are astonished to see Herry walking on stilts. Herry says that he wants to be just as tall as Big Bird, but unfortunately, he loses his balance and falls. David and Mr. Hooper help Herry up and tell him that he can’t make himself taller, and that he’s going to have to wait a long time until he can do things that taller people can do.
