Gigglesnort Hotel bumper
Desk clerk B.J. (Bill Jackson) straightening out the hotel lobby to the best of his ability - though it's now three feet off its foundation, as well as extremely freezing. He tries to reach Mr. Gigglesnort again - the old man thinks the hotel hit an iceberg (in the manner of the Titanic), and once again picks up a carrot when the phone rings.
Weird (bundled up as if going out in wintry weather) asks where the heat is, and B.J. has him deliver the letters to those to whom they were intended. W.C. and his magnifying glass reemerge, with him uttering "That's not it" over and over again until he happens on a blanket to keep him warm. Dirty (or "Mr. Hot Stuff, Sir" as he insists on being addressed) emerges and B.J. once again tries to convince him to bring up some heat; the Dragon once more can't be bothered, as he announces he's packing for Hollywood.
Maynard arrives with his beak chattering - not due to nervousness, but the cold. After that, the Professor and Mother Plumtree reach the lobby - with teeth chattering to make the point. B.J. is beginning to get exasperated over the Dragon's star-ego trip, and decides he'll play The Little Red Hen in order to bring coal into the furnace.
Just as he's about to go down, Blob brings over another letter meant for Dirty, and as B.J. (whose garb at this point resembles a train engineer) comes down, he sees for himself the extent to which the Dragon has let his upcoming Hollywood adventure go to his head (including glasses with stars on the lens, a blonde wig and a ridiculous costume; as well as reading an issue of the "show business bible" Variety). B.J. reads the letter, which is related to Gloria Glotz's upcoming picture "Big Stuff in Africa," and explains the Dragon's role is to be a snake that gets stepped on by an elephant, and that he is to pay his own expenses. This causes Dirty to freak out and breathe fire, thus leading B.J. to retreat. After another appearance by W.C., Dirty goes on about how, with his nose and profile, he couldn't have "won," and B.J. explains that the contest was also entered by thousands of people. The Dragon tries to explain the scales, but B.J. advises that the competition was intense. He reassures Dirty he's the "best looking" dragon, but advises him to "calm down," and the fire-breather advises who could have possibly looked better than him to get the role in the film.
After the elevator plummets, Gus-Gus emerges with star's glasses and a "Peace" sign on his chest, and a letter in his hand; his gestures, and an assistant carrying his luggage, is all the answer that can possibly be conveyed. B.J. announces his intention not to tell the Dragon.
