Mister Rogers shares a collection of calling cards from various business from around the Neighborhood.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, X the Owl is waiting outside the castle for an appointment with King Friday where he hopes to ask for a job. Salesman Bogut arrives for his appointment to follow but quickly finds himself showing his new crown and robe accessories to the king. King Friday asks Salesman Bogut to take his wares to the W Room when a salesman from the Ostentatious Throne Company arrives with a sales pitch of his own. He, too, is asked to find his way to the W Room. Having waited patiently, X is finally able to ask King Friday for a job and is assigned the printing royal calling cards.

A short time later at the tree, X has hurried to finish the cards and shares his work with Lady Aberlin and Henrietta Pussycat. They are concerned when the first two cards X shares are sloppily made in haste and are likely to be unacceptable to King Friday. The final card, however, is perfect and X the Owl presents it to the king who is quite pleased with his work. King Friday shares his appreciation by singing I'm Proud of You.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers is invited to Betty's Little Theater where he enjoys a performance by a group of pantomime artists.

Notes

  • The calling cards include Audrey Cleans Everything, Negri's Music Shop, John Moore's Cement service, Brockett's Baked Goods, and Betty's Little Theater.
  • When Mister Rogers shows the calling card for Brockett's Baked Goods, I'm a Chef plays in the background. As Lady Aberlin walks with Henrietta Pussycat from the tree to the castle, both It's Such a Good Feeling and You Are Pretty play. Finally, as the episode transitions from Mister Rogers' house to Betty's Little Theater, The People You Like the Most is heard in the background.
  • Both salesmen in Make-Believe are played by Jack Bogut. Mr. Bogut was the longtime host of the morning show on Pittsburgh's KDKA radio.
  • Lynda Martha, one of the pantomime artists, was the 1967 Miss Majorette of America from Pittsburgh, PA and appeared previously in Episode 0008 as a baton twirler.
