Episode Summary

Big Bird's singing a happy song—he's been invited to join the Good Bird's Club! But the president of the club teases him about his bright yellow feathers and his gigantic feet, eyes, wings, and beak. Big Bird feels just terrible and asks Abby to cast a magic spell to change his appearance.

Reluctantly, Abby casts a spell, making all of Big Bird's requested changes, including bright blue feathers. But Abby realizes the truth—the president is bullying Big Bird. So she tells Chris, who tells Big Bird he shouldn't have to change to join a club. He's special and wonderful the way he is.

And the pals start their own club: The Happy to Be Me Club.
