Gordon introduces Sesame Street's residents - both Muppet and human; Cookie Monster disrupts Kermit the Frog's lecture on the letter "W"; and Carol Burnett is the first celebrity guest. Also: It's the debut of the song/game "One of These Things (Is Not Like the Other)."
Today, Oscar the Grouch is hungry for a special kind of ice cream sundae: namely a baked bean one with chocolate ice cream, chopped pickles, whipped cream and a radish. Poor Mr. Hooper has no choice but to oblige.
Today on Sesame Street, Big Bird struggles to get his bags of birdseed to his nest. His adult friends help him figure it out. Sesame Street is brought to you today by the letters A, H, and T, and by the number 10. This episode includes guest appearances from James Earl Jones and Burt Lancaster, who demonstrate counting and saying the alphabet. Ernie shows Bert his 'A' making machine, and Kermit the Frog tries to demonstrate the word 'in'.
It's such a nice day on the Street that Susan, Gordon, and two kids set up chairs in the arbor and go on an imaginary car ride. Then Oscar puts in a call to a certain Melvin Meany, and the two of them have a heated argument over the phone.
