Episode Summary

Big Bird and Snuffy are hosting the "The Letter of the Day Show." The only problem is the letter of the day is broken and they don't know what it is! All they have is two straight pieces.

To figure out the broken letter, they look to the show guests for clues. The first guest is a box. Could the letter of the day be a "B"? Big Bird and Snuffy try to make a "B" with the pieces, but it's just too curvy. The second guest is wax. Maybe the letter is "W"? That doesn't work either.

The hosts are totally perplexed when the last guest turns out to be Leela in a T-Rex costume, but as Snuffy says the words out loud—box, wax, Tyrannosaurus Rex—he realizes they all end with the same letter—X! The broken letter is fixed and everyone is x-static!
