Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Today, Mr. Johnson is dining at Planet Storybook, the premiere eatery for storybook characters. He looks around in awe of the storybook memorabilia, such as the pail from Jack and Jill. He even sees Cinderella and Prince Charming passing by, and Little Jack Horner sitting in the corner. Mr. Johnson's excitement quickly fades when he learns that Grover will be his waiter once again. Sleeping Beauty passes by, and Grover calls to her to make sure she's well rested. He then assures Mr. Johnson that Planet Storybook cares for their customers, quoting their motto "We serve healthy food, so you will live happily ever after." Mr. Johnson is given a breakfast menu to peruse, but he says he doesn't want breakfast. Grover stresses that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and segues to a film to make his point.

Song: The Most Important Meal of the Day

Grover has gone to the kitchen, chiding an unseen employee who intends to serve peas porridge nine days old. He brings a fresh dish of porridge to Mr. Johnson, whose vocal dislike of the food offends one ursine customer, who growls. Grover explains that Mr. Johnson can't claim to dislike something until he tries it, and points him to another film, shushing him in the process.

Song: Cereal Girl

Song: Blueberry Mouth

Grover tends to two little piggies (one wants roast beef, and the other wants none) before coming back to Mr. Johnson, who finally reveals that he already had breakfast. Now, it's lunchtime, and Mr. Johnson has his mind set on having a slice of pepperoni pizza with extra cheese. Grover, however, points out that Mr. Johnson has had that for lunch every day at Charlie's. Grover recommends a healthier alternative, their special "Pasta Surprise," and dashes off to get it.

Song: Pasta

A starved Mr. Johnson groans about not being served pizza when Grover brings out his meal, tripping on Jack Be Nimble's candlestick in the process, and telling Jack to not leave it in front of the door to the kitchen. Grover unveils the "Pasta Surprise," which is a hat with a feather in it, confusing Mr. Johnson. Grover calls it "macaroni," in keeping with the story of "Yankee Doodle."

Song: Telly's Lunch

As the Dish and the Spoon run pass the kitchen, Grover brings out a large plate of salad and attempts to feed it to Mr. Johnson, who still insists on having pizza. Grover loses his patience and shoves a spoonful of salad into Mr. Johnson's mouth. Mr. Johnson admits he likes the salad and agrees to try more healthy foods. Grover then segues to a film about balanced eating.

Song: Healthy Food

Song: You Don't Have to Be a Grizzly Bear to Eat Some Honey

Mr. Johnson vows to eat new healthy foods starting with his salad, not noticing until too late that Grover has eaten it. What's more, Grover reveals that there's no more food in the kitchen, attributing a large food rush to The Pied Piper and his kids. Grover suggests that Mr. Johnson should've arrived earlier, which causes Mr. Johnson to stammer and faint. Grover then goes to wait on Little Miss Muffet, and proposes that they order out for pizza; which he admits isn't very healthy, but it's okay to splurge every once in a while. Miss Muffet offers to get her cell phone from her car.

Sketch: PIZZA (played over credits)

Mr. Johnson wakes up to see Grover and Little Miss Muffet chowing down on their pepperoni pizza with extra cheese, which makes him faint again.
