Mister Rogers arrives having just talked with Mr. McFeely who will be stopping by with a book about numbers and animals. As he waits, Mister Rogers feeds the fish and sings Let's Be Together Today.

Mr. McFeely stops by with the Animal Number Book which Mister Rogers shares with viewers.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Robert Troll introduces himself as he looks for Sara Saturday who, he explains, is responsible for taming him. With King Friday's permission, Lady Aberlin uses the royal telephone to call Sara Saturday. Robert Troll is instructed to stay in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe until tomorrow when one of Sara Saturday's "wise ladies" will be coming for a conference with the King. The wise lady will take Robert Troll home following her conference. In the meantime, he is to spend the evening with King Friday.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers shares a portion of "The Jabberwocky" -- a poem by Lewis Carroll. He compares the verse to the way Robert Troll speaks in gibberish. Mr. McFeely returns for the Animal Number Book as Mister Rogers concludes for the day.


The production slate at the beginning of this episode shows the last names of those appearning in the episode. Bob Trow is clearly listed as "Troll."

Sara Saturday's phone number is 311-555-4321. According to Wikipedia, "in former times, 311 was sometimes used as a fictitious area code." This number is also referenced in Episode 0079, Episode 1013, and Episode 1158.
