Guests Susan Linn

Mister Rogers shares some pictures of his family including one of his sons playing with puppets. Taking out a few puppets of his own -- including an owl made by a young friend and his family -- Mister Rogers explains how people use their hands to make puppets move. After talking about how playing with puppets can be a way to express your feelings, he sings There Are Many Ways to Say I Love You.

Susan Linn stops by with her own puppets including Audrey Duck. Ms. Linn also talks about puppets being a wonderful tool for safely expressing feelings.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, X the Owl shows Audrey Duck and Susan Linn around the Neighborhood. Ana Platypus is startled when she sees their unfamiliar faces. Meanwhile, the shy Henrietta Pussycat keeps her distance from X and his guests. Lady Elaine Fairchilde is a little pushy and off-putting as she introduces herself to Susan and Audrey. Henrietta works up the courage to meet the guests just before Mr. McFeely delivers a message requesting their presence at the castle.

Back at the house, Ms. Linn shares a few other puppets including the first puppet she ever had -- a dragon made from a sock. She describes ventriloquism and explains how it works.
