Mister Rogers invites viewers outside as he sings Won't You Be My Neighbor. On the porch, he has a dog -- a dachshund named Neddie -- that he is watching for Mr. McFeely. After feeding Neddie a snack, Mister Rogers takes her inside where he looks at a book about different kinds of dogs.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Chef Brockett passes through with a basket full of apples. After giving one to Daniel Striped Tiger, he sings I'm a Chef before leaving an apple at the Museum-Go-Round. At the tree, Chef Brockett gives small cups of apple sauce to X the Owl and Henrietta Pussycat. After making an appointment with King Friday, Chef Brockett gives him a small bottle of apple juice.

Back at the house, Mr. McFeely stops by to pick up Neddie and shows Mister Rogers a French poodle named Roscoe. Chef Brockett arrives with the rest of his apples which he and Mister Rogers place into a large bowl of water. After bobbing for apples, they quietly enjoy a snack.


Neddie the dog does not belong to Mr. McFeely but rather to a pet store which Mr. McFeely is helping for the day.

As Mister Rogers plays with Neddie, I Like to Be Told plays in the background. As he prepares for Make-Believe, Everybody's Fancy is heard.

As Mr. McFeely attempts to leave with Roscoe, the dog gets free of his leash and runs off the set. While Mr. McFeely seems somewhat alarmed, Mister Rogers calmly assures him that the dog is simply "going out the side door."
