Mister Rogers sings It's Such a Good Feeling while he makes homemade modeling clay.

Using the clay, Mister Rogers pretends that a dancer has come to King Friday's castle to dance for the newborn prince. The dancer, Ethel Winter, entertains the royal family before Queen Sara excuses herself to go and feed the prince.

Before she departs, King Friday requests one more dance from Ms. Winter. In exchange, Ms. Winter asks to meet the others in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe. Handyman Negri is assigned the task of showing her around the Neighborhood. Ms. Winter demonstrates a new dance for each new person she meets.

Back at the house, Jamie Rogers stops by with some pieces of art he has made out of clay. Jamie uses real modeling clay to create a new figure.

After feeding the fish, Jamie and Mister Rogers sing Tomorrow together to conclude the day.


It is very interesting the way that Mister Rogers refers to his visitor at the end of the episode. After hearing a knock at the back door, Mister Rogers looks through the window to see who it is. "It's Jamie Rogers," he says. There is no mention of the visitor being his son; in fact, the only comment suggesting some sort of a relationship comes after Jamie begins working at the table with regular modeling clay. Mister Rogers mentions that "when [Jamie] was a little boy [they] used that other dough a lot."
