    Synopsis

    The story begins with Teddy and Grubby naming the seasons of the year, and Grubby remarks that his favorite time of the year is “Tuesday”. When Teddy asks what “Tuesday” is, Grubby describes a season that sounds much more like Spring. When Teddy points this out, Grubby admits that Spring is when his favorite “Tuesday” was.

    Teddy agrees that Spring is one of his favorite times of the year, and he especially enjoys the Grundo Springtime Singtime festival. He and Grubby begin to reminisce about the previous year’s festival, in which they were invited to sing. They start with one of Teddy’s favorite songs, “Spring Has Sprung”.

    Following the first song, Teddy introduces their backup band, the Grunges, and their backup singers, the Fobs! Grubby goes around greeting all the Fobs, leading to “Fobs Are Gobs Of Fun”.

    Teddy thanks the Fobs for singing along on that song, and Grubby mentions that should they get hungry, there’s always a helping of his famous Roasted Root Stew to refresh them. The Fobs not-so-politely decline, and while Teddy tries to console Grubby by saying they don’t seem hungry just now, Grubby hopes the next song will perk up their appetites (“Grubby’s Roasted Root Stew”).

    To get the taste of Root Stew out of everyone’s mouths, Teddy starts a song everyone can join in on (“A Happy Sing-Along Song”).

    Following the final sing-along, the Grunges agree that Teddy and Grubby have made this year’s festival lots of fun. Grubby takes mild offense to one Grunge’s remark that without the Root Stew, it would’ve been perfect, but in the end the Grunges agree to make Teddy and Grubby honorary Grunges (“I’m An Honorary Grunge”).
