Mister Rogers arrives with a bucket and stool used for milking a cow. He explains how cows are milked before watching a film about cows.

Taking the bucket and stool, Mister Rogers visits the McFeelys who are watching after a cow named Harriett for Farmer Turner. As Mrs. McFeely demonstrates how the cow is milked, Francois Clemmons stops by. He and Mister Rogers each take a turn at milking and Francois sings You're a Fine Cow.

Returning to the house, Mister Rogers sits on the porch with Francois Clemmons as they practice a new song -- I Can Moo Like a Cow.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin and King Friday are at the castle discussing Donkey Hodie's need for extra help on his farm. Harriett Elizabeth Cow arrives in the Neighborhood looking for Someplace Else as she is answering Donkey Hodie's ad for help. Lady Aberlin and Donkey Hodie are each so thrilled to have found someone to help, that they kiss Ms. Cow when they meet her. When Francois Clemmons is introduced to her, however, Ms. Cow is surprised that he does not give her a kiss as well.

Lady Aberlin returns to the castle where King Friday has told Edgar Cooke that he may have to work double time between the castle and Someplace Else. Edgar is releived when he learns of Harriett Elizabeth Cow's arrival.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about how some children may like kisses and some children may not. He goes to the kitchen where he takes out some miniature farm animals and sings I Can Moo Like a Cow.


The cow named Harriett at the McFeely's foreshadows the arrival of Harriett Elizabeth Cow in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe.

Just after Lady Aberlin leaves Someplace Else, Donkey Hodie attempts to pick up a shovel but it drops to the floor.
