Mister Rogers arrives with a toy elephant with a zipper on its back for items to be stored inside. After he explains that people don't have zippers on their bodies, he sings Everything Grows Together. Further explaining how people grow, Mister Rogers tries on a sweater he wore as a child. He then remembers a time Astronaut Al Worden explained to him how a space suit works.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday XIII has invited Astronaut Worden to visit the castle and receives word that he will be arriving tomorrow. Handyman Negri and Cornflake S. Pecially spread the word of the astronaut's planned visit. While Lady Elaine Fairchilde hopes to join Astronaut Worden on a trip to the moon, X the Owl and Henrietta are fearful that he will make them travel into space with him. Handyman Negri puts their minds at ease and explains that they will not have to go to the moon.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about astronauts require a great deal of training before they are able to travel into space. Mr. McFeely delivers a large package addressed to Mr. Worden and suggests that Mrs. McFeely will be visiting tomorrow, as well, with a live animal friend.

Mister Rogers concludes by playing a few familiar tunes on the piano -- Hickory Dickory Dock and Mary Had a Little Lamb.
