Mister Rogers arrives with two teddy bears -- a mama bear and a baby bear. Putting on a hood with a pair of ears, he pretends to be the papa bear as he reads the story of The Three Bears.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Mime Walker has finished a performance at the castle and visits Daniel Striped Tiger. At Daniel's request, Mime Walker teaches him some basic mime techniques.

Visiting Grandpere at his trading tower, Mime Walker requests a copy of The Three Bears. Grandpere tells the story as Mime Walker performs the story as a mime.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings Les Trois Ours -- a song in French about the three bears -- before Hunkie Johnson stops by with Duke, his trained bear. They discuss being safe around wild bears before Mr. Johnson has Duke perform some basic tricks.

Mister Rogers concludes by singing Thank You For Today.
