Mister Rogers arrives with a can of yellow paint. After putting on a pair of bib overalls, he sings Let's Be Together Today as he goes to the porch to paint the swing. Mister Rogers works quietly, speaking very little as he paints.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, the castle is temporarily closed as King Friday is having some "serious meetings" inside. Meanwhile, Handyman Negri assists Corney in rearranging the display windows at the factory. Learning of the meetings taking place at the castle, Corney assumes that they have to do with the King and "his sweetheart" and suggests that there might be a wedding sometime soon.

Handyman Negri's curiosity gets the best of him and he calls Miss Paulificate to ask about the meetings at the castle. She offers the same advice as Corney: wait and see.

At the Museum-Go-Round, Handyman Negri admires the new bell which has been installed outside. Lady Elaine Fairchilde asks for his help in labeling a display of colorful shapes. She, too, feels that King Friday and Sara Saturday will soon be married.

Handyman Negri is called to the castle by King Friday who commends him on his service to the kingdom. King Friday declares that the castle will be open tomorrow and that an important announcement will be made.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers puts the finishing touches on his porch swing before he sings I Like To Be Told.


As Mister Rogers paints, various familiar tunes are played in the background including You've Got To Do It and I'd Like To Be Like Mom/Dad.
