She introduces SLIMEY to the different kinds of bugs they have: The Detroit Dirt Digger, some Lackawanna Ladybugs (who are having a picnic), a Sisyphus from Syracuse & Chauncey (a flea that the dog it lives on comes with).

SCENE 1cont’d
Now back at their HOME, OSCAR & SLIMEY settle his new pet in. SLIMEY decides to name himDirty”. When SLIMEY says hello, Dirty quickly moves away, frightened. OSCAR consults The Bug Book Natalie gave them & sees that Dirty is frightened by his new surroundings. They try out the suggestions in the book to make him calmer. First, they dress like bugs by wearing antenna caps on their heads, but that’s not enough. The other thing the book suggests is they sing the “Welcome Bug Song”. They sing the song to Dirty (much to OSCAR’s disgust), who becomes less frightened & begins playing with SLIMEY.
