Mister Rogers arrives with a shoe-shine kit which he uses to clean his shoes before changing into his sneakers. Picture Picture shows a short animated film about shoes before Mister Rogers uses a pretend telescope to take a peak into the Neighborhood of Make-Believe.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, X the Owl teaches Lady Aberlin a dance called the Fly but Henrietta is too shy to try it. Lady Aberlin gives X and Henrietta tickets for the upcoming folk dance at the castle. The letter D on the back of each tickets reminds those attending that the dance will be held in the D Room. Moving on, Lady Aberlin gives two tickets to Daniel Tiger -- one for him and one for Bob Dog.

In the D Room, Lady Elaine demonstrates the Museum Go Round Twirl for Handyman Negri. The King and Queen arrive and do the Royal Three-Step before the Junior Tamburitzans perform as well. Daniel Tiger and Bob Dog arrive just in time to do the Fly with X. Next, the Junior Tamburitzans perform again -- this time joined by Bob Dog. As they dance, the cage worn on Bob Dog's head is passed around among the dancers.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings It's Such a Good Feeling as he creates a sitting dance for children to do when they feel like dancing but must stay seated.


Upon his arrival at the folk dance, King Friday proudly exerts his power: "Here is a ticket for Queen Sara. I don't need a ticket. I'm the king."

Bob Dog wears a cage on his head for much of the time he appears in this episode.
