Upon his arrival, Mister Rogers shows a few exercises that he learned from Marilyn Barnett. He spends a moment talking about children growing and learning before he sings You're Growing.

Mister Rogers visits Marilyn Barnett's school gym where Vija Vetra is dancing. Miss Vetra demonstrates various hand symbols and explains their meanings in relation to a few stories before continuing her dancing. Betty Aberlin arrives at the gym with a drawing done by musician Tony Bennett.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Elaine is surprised when Tony Bennett visits the MGR-TV studio with a sketch pad. As he draws a picture, Mr. Bennett hums and whistles the tune of It's You I Like. Lady Elaine is flattered when she finds that the picture being drawn by Mr. Bennett is a portrait of her. After finishing the drawing, Mr. Bennett sings It's You I Like and Sometimes Isn't Always.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers uses paper and a crayon to draw a picture of an animal he remembers from his conversation with Miss Vetra.
