Mister Rogers arrives with a clown marionette which he demonstrates before he sings The Clown in Me. Mr. McFeely stops by with an invitation to the dance recital in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Daniel Striped Tiger and Lady Aberlin are reading the same invitation. They find that the end of the invitation specifies that there is to be no applause at the recital. Lady Aberlin plays a clapping game with Daniel before she visits the factory where she learns that Joey Hollingsworth has been rehearsing at the castle all morning long.

In addition to his no-clapping rule, King Friday changes the time of the dance recital which causes Sara Saturday to miss the beginning. After a speech from the King, applause is expected so he lifts his ban on clapping. Joey Hollingsworth continues his recital before Sara Saturday expresses her appreciation to King Friday, even though he has done his best to keep her from Mr. Hollingsworth. Realizing that Sara Saturday was thinking of him, even though she was enjoying Mr. Hollingsworth's performance, King Friday requests that the recital continue.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about King Friday's feelings of jealousy. He concludes by singing Tree Tree Tree.
