Mister Rogers arrives with various household items which he takes to the kitchen and uses to make homemade drums. As he demonstrates his new instruments, he sings What Do You Do With the Mad That You Feel.

Mister Rogers' young friend, Edgar Presseley, stops by to demonstrate his snare drum. Sitting at the piano, Mister Rogers joins Edgar for a duet by playing What Do You Do With the Mad That You Feel. Before Edgar leaves, Mister Rogers asks about his "big drum" and learns that it is on loan to Mr. Anybody.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Mr. Anybody is a one-man-band. Having difficulty keeping up with the demands of working alone, Mr. Anybody asks X the Owl and Henrietta to each play an instruments. They decide to ask other Neighbors to play instruments, too, with the intention of performing for King Friday and Sara Saturday. Daniel Striped Tiger will play the xylophone, Grandpere the castanets, and the Trolley will play a bell and whistle. Everyone will perform a Neighborhood symphony tomorrow.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers wonders what the Neighborhood orchestra will play.
