Mister Rogers has several pairs of shoes which he has borrowed from people around the Neighborhood. He spends some time describing the shoes which vary in size and purpose. Some of the shoes he even tries on. Explaining that feet grow along with the rest of your body, Mister Rogers sings Everything Grows Together.

Handyman Negri stops by to let Mister Rogers know that Miss Paulificate has been tyring to call him on the telecan but has not been able to get through. Checking the traffic light, Handyman Negri finds that the light which notifies Mister Rogers of a call has burned out. After the light bulb is replaced, Handyman Negri is able to successfully connect Mister Rogers with Miss Paulificate who invites him to see some children dancing at the castle.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday observes as Norma Canner and several children dance and play inside the castle.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings Everybody's Fancy as he collects all of the shoes into a box to return to their owners.


When Mister Rogers tries on a pair of clown shoes, The Clown in Me plays in the background.
