WORBY is the GROUCH owner of WORBYs Store, a food location in GROUCHYtown, the hometown of OSCAR THE GROUCH, which is the opposite of Hoopers Store back on SESAME STREET.

The expected GROUCHYtowners show up at OSCARs TRASH CAN & OSCAR instructs them on how to plan "for niceness." Theyve got their sunglasses in case of smiley faces, & nose plugs so they wont smell any cookies baking, but WORBY doesnt have a helmet to protect his head from being patted. Just then, they see Bob & Maria waving to someone, & smell his vanilla ice cream cone, but luckily theyve prepared for that already. As they walk past him, he pats WORBYs bare head, which upsets him.

OSCAR then points the GROUCHYtowners attention to something DISGUSTING: Bob & Linda, a couple, sitting together. Theygo near them, but he asks for them to leave so he can be alone with her. He then gets an idea: he talks to her in sign language without speaking, thus driving the GROUCHES away. As they leave, he pats WORBYs unprotected head once again. (OSCAR: "Dont complain to ME, Mr. I-dont-need-a-helmet!")

OSCAR & the annoyed GROUCHYtowners stop by Marias apartment, just as shes about to take a bath, which isn't a MUD bath, to their disappointment. Maria drives them away by giving them a whiff of her soap, talking about getting clean, & giving WORBY a pat on the head. "I just cant help being nice", she grins.

Later, after OSCAR & the aggravated GROUCHYtowners reconvene, WORBY complains hes really sick of being patted on the head, & he wishes he was back in GROUCHYtown. VELMA & OTTO are homesick too, & the 3 sing "Dear Old GROUCHYtown". A sympathetic OSCAR agrees to end the tour & take them to the bus stop.

As the GROUCHYtowners leave 1 by 1, Bob & Linda give them a GROUCHY send-off, which impresses them. WORBY (now wearing a hat) gets a kiss from Linda, & Gina announces the sponsors.
