Mister Rogers arrives with a mother turtle and a baby turtle borrowed from the pet store. Taking them to the kitchen, he places them in a bowl and gives them some food. After encouraging viewers to pretend that they are turtles, Mister Rogers sings The Clown in Me.

Miss Emilie stops by with a book about animals which she shares with Mister Rogers. After reading the book, Miss Emilie mentions that it is a birthday gift for Mr. McFeely.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Mr. McFeely delivers an order of lumber to the factory where Corney talks to him about his upcoming birthday. Corney is planning a surprise for Mr. McFeely and offers him a measuring stick to measure the size of his delivery bicycle.

After Mr. McFeely has gone, Miss Emilie stops by the factory with her animal book. Corney tells her that he is making a special seat for the back of Mr. McFeely's bicycle so others can ride along with him. Before Miss Emilie moves on, Corney sings I'm a Man Who Manufactures.

At the tree, Miss Emilie shares the animal book with Henrietta Pussycat and X the Owl. Henrietta mentions that she wants to give Mr. McFeely a kiss for his birthday.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings a bit more of The Clown in Me before Mr. McFeely stops by to pick up the turtles.
