Mister Rogers arrives with a cardboard oatmeal box with a loose button inside. Connecting the box to the button with a piece of string, he creates a homemade musical instrument. Sitting at the piano, Mister Rogers talks about angry feelings and sings I'm Angry. Returning to the instrument he made and feeling good, he goes on to sing It's Such a Good Feeling.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin talks with Henrietta Pussycat and Lady Elaine Fairchilde about X the Owl's attempt to convince King Friday to make a Neighborhood rule outlawing all bells. The King denies the request and X suggests that he will "do it his own way."

It is soon discovered that Henrietta's bell is missing. When questioned, X denies taking the bell but Lady Aberlin and Henrietta can hear it inside the tree. Knowing he is caught, X returns the bell. Lady Aberlin talks with X about his feelings of jealousy over Henrietta's babysitting duties assigned by the King and suggests that he ask King Friday for a special job of his own. Henrietta shows her appreciation for her friend by singing It's You I Like.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings a few lines of It's You I Like before taking his homemade instrument outside. Mrs. McFeely stops by and tries playing the instrument herself. After pouring some sand inside the box, Mrs. McFeely hangs the box over a piece of black paper. With sand pouring slowly through a small hole, she is able to make artistic designs on the paper.
