Mister Rogers arrives with a piece of wood and a large handsaw. After describing the saw, he explains that such tools can be dangerous and should be used only by adults. After sawing the wood in two, Mister Rogers uses the pieces to finish a frame he has been making.

Looking at the teeth on the saw, Mister Rogers suggests that sometimes people feel like using their teeth for biting when they are angry. Reinforcing the fact that teeth are not for biting, he sings What Do You Do With the Mad That You Feel.

As Mister Rogers finishes the frame, Mr. McFeely stops by to borrow some nails for Handyman Negri who is working at the castle.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Handyman Negri is on his way to the castle where he is building a new balcony. Stopping by the tree, he talks with X the Owl and Henrietta Pussycat about building with blocks when he was a child.

At the castle, Handyman Negri finds that Lady Elaine Fairchilde has helped herself to his tools. Mr. McFeely delivers the nails borrowed from Mister Rogers which allows Handyman Negri to continue his work on the balcony as Lady Elaine observes. When X the Owl arrives, Handyman Negri finds safe ways for he and Lady Elaine to help as they discuss ways that King Friday might use his new balcony. Lady Elaine suggests that he will use it as a place to watch her -- his "favorite clown" -- and sings The Clown in Me with X and Handyman Negri.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers takes out his record player and a copy of his Let's Be Together Today record. In the kitchen, he plays the portion of the record and demonstrates various tool sounds.


I'd Like to Be Like Mom and Dad plays in the background as Mister Rogers finishes his frame.

The record played by Mister Rogers is the first of several versions of Let's Be Together released over the years.
