Mister Rogers arrives with a large box and a small box -- both containing something to wear. Inside the small box is a ring and inside the large box is a hat. Putting on the hat, Mister Rogers sings Let's Be Together Today.

Chef Brockett stops by with colored dough which he uses to make rainbow cookies for his friends in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin sings the Litter Song before she fulfills her duty of placing litter baskets around the Neighborhood -- a big basket for big litter and a little basket for little litter. At the clock, she explains to Daniel Striped Tiger that, according to King Friday, litter bugs must wear a litter bug hat. As he explains that he once might have been considered a litter bug when he was wild, Daniel sings I'm Tame.

Chef Brockett arrives with his rainbow cookies and hands them out among the neighbors. The cookie wrappers are placed in the litter baskets. When she does not get a cookie right away, Lady Elaine Fairchilde begins littering out of defiance and is required to wear the litter bug hat.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about people acting out for attention as he sings The Clown in Me.

A quick look back into the Neighborhood of Make-Believe shows Lady Elaine helping Chef Brockett and Lady Aberlin pick up litter. No longer considered a litter bug, Lady Elaine is allowed to take off the hat.
