Mister Rogers provides a favor to Mr. McFeely by watching a cat named Pink Paws. In preparation, Mister Rogers opens a can of cat food in the kitchen and puts it in a food bowl. He also pours some milk in a separate bowl.

Moving to the couch, Mister Rogers sings the Alphabet Song. He takes out a copy of a record album he made which includes this song. Mister Rogers sings along as the Alphabet Song plays on the record player.

Mr. McFeely stops by with Pink Paws. When Mister Rogers offers the cat some food, it is too nervous to eat. Mister Rogers talks about how it is sometimes difficult to visit new and unfamiliar places.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Handyman Negri is cataloging words throughout the Neighborhood based on the first letter of each word. When he stops by the tree, Henrietta Pussycat and X the Owl sing the Alphabet Song with Handyman Negri.

After visiting with Mrs. Frogg at the Museum-Go-Round, Handyman Negri goes to the castle for his appointment with King Friday. Arriving late for the appointment, Handyman Negri is instructed to say "I beg your pardon" thirteen times. King Friday suggests adding Sara Saturday to the "S" page of Handyman Negri's letter index and commands Handyman Negri to make contact with her by the next day.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers uses Picture Picture to show the letters of the alphabet. After Pink Paws eats some of the food Mister Rogers has prepared, Mr. McFeely returns for the cat. He gives Mister Rogers an apple to thank him for watching Pink Paws.


The record album played by Mister Rogers is the original release of Let's Be Together Today (Album).
