Tom Mizer, a new teacher, wakes up and prepares for his first day of school by practicing what he is going to say to his students. Tom struggles to find the right way to introduce himself, and the Ensemble enters speaking Tom's anxious inner thoughts. Tom decides he needs to relax and turns on the TV, where he finds that Schoolhouse Rock is on ("Schoolhouse Rocky"). Tom is shocked when the characters in the television show begin talking directly to him. Tom's attempts to scare them away fail, and George explains that the characters are just the ideas in Tom's head. Dina points out to Tom that the audience is also part of Tom's psyche. Shulie and the rest of the group pull him into the world of Schoolhouse Rock by explaining, and acting out, the world of nouns ("A Noun Is A Person, Place, Or Thing").
