Mister Rogers spends a moment talking about slow motion before sharing the film he brought with him -- a film of animals moving in slow motion.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin, Ino A. Horse, and Bob Dog are searching for a sea gull. Daniel Striped Tiger, Dr. Bill Platypus, and Cornflake S. Pecially have no leads, but Lady Elaine Fairchilde shares a ball that turns into an animation of birds. Lady Aberlin and Bob Dog prefer to find an actual sea gull so they move on to talk with their Neighborhood bird friend -- X the Owl. X has a toy sea gull with a pull string much like found on Ino A. Horse -- only the sea gull says "you know" rather than "I know."

Back at the house, Mister Rogers visits Bob Trow's workshop where Mr. Trow and Betty Aberlin are working on parts for Chef Brokett's new soda fountain to be opened inside the bakery. Mr. Trow pretends to be in an old movie as he pantomimes some fast-motion movements.

Returning to his house, Mister Rogers calls his musician friend, Eric Kloss, and invites him to provide entertainment at the opening of Chef Brockett's soda fountain.

  • Won't You Be My Neighbor plays in the background as Lady Aberlin walks through the Neighborhood of Make-Believe.
  • Corny is especially busy after recently receiving a large order from Santa Claus.
  • X the Owl's sea gull attends the Owl Correspondence School. According to X, "Any bird can be a learner in that school."
  • The animation seen in Make-Believe is also shown in Episode 1223.
