Mister Rogers is feeling "full of music today" and visits Negri's Music Shop. Mr. Negri happily shows Mister Rogers a variety of instruments including a small xylophone and a slide whistle. With Mr. Negri playing the guitar and he himself playing the xylophone, Mister Rogers sings Look and Listen.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Handyman Negri moves through the Neighborhood playing his guitar and singing songs. After Corney joins him in singing I'm a Man Who Manufactures, Handyman Negri moves on to the tree where X the Owl teaches him the song from Owl Correspondence School.

X receives a special delivery (by way of a floating red object) from the OCS which includes a tiny record and a book. The instructions explain that the record should be played as the book is read -- the first lesson in Owl Music History. The record features several examples of the sounds made by owls.

Moving on to Daniel's clock, Handyman Negri finds that Daniel Striped Tiger has hung a sign that reads: "No Dogs Allowed. This means you, Bob Dog!" Daniel wonders whether or not Bob Dog is a tame animal.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers suggests that Daniel's fear might be coming from the previous day when he scratched Handyman Negri: "Sometimes if you hurt somebody, you're afraid that other people might hurt you."

Joe Negri stops by with a book Mister Rogers calls Investigating Science With Rubber Bands -- a book full of ways rubber bands can teach scientific lessons. In the kitchen, Mister Rogers uses rubber bands to make a homemade musical instrument. He concludes with a short animated film about a bouncing ball.
