Mister Rogers arrives with a pair of binoculars which he demonstrates as he talks about looking closely at things. Using the binoculars to look closely at viewers, Mister Rogers encourages viewers to look closely at him. Looking through the binoculars, Mr. McFeely is seen speeding through the Neighborhood on his bicycle.

Arriving at Mister Rogers' house, Mr. McFeely delivers a book called Looking for Letters which Mister Rogers sits down to read. The book shows the letters of the alphabet hidden within the pictures.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin is dressed as a snow goose dancing about the Neighborhood. Daniel Striped Tiger remembers a flock of snow geese he knew when he was a wild tiger but sings I'm Tame to reinforce the fact that he is no longer wild.

Bird watching from the tree, Lady Elaine and X the Owl are surprised to see the "snow goose" approaching. Upon reaching the tree, Lady Aberlin finds that Lady Elaine has learned quite a lot about birds in just a short time. Lady Elaine mentions that she "even likes to count" so together they all sing One and One Are Two.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings One and One Are Two as he concludes for the week.


Although the details presented prior to the episode list Barbara Russell in this episode, as do the ending credits, she does not appear on camera. Betty Aberlin does, however, appear but goes uncredited. It is likely that Barbara Russell should not have been listed while Betty Aberlin obviously should have.

An animated version of Looking for Letters is featured in Episode 1023, Episode 1058, Episode 1174, and Episode 1217.
