Mister Rogers arrives with some projector slides that show some pictures of lizards. After viewing the slides on Picture Picture, he sings Everybody's Fancy. Mister Rogers visits the McFeelys home where he sees a real iguana and learns about what it eats and how it is cared for.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Queen Sara and Handyman Negri are talking about the arrival of King Friday's college friend -- a lizard princess. Handyman Negri shares that Daniel Striped Tiger is somewhat fearful about the arrival of a lizard in the Neighborhood.

At the clock, Daniel explains that he is afraid that the lizard will eat him up. Handyman Negri assures Daniel that there are a lot of people in the Neighborhood who would never let anyone hurt him.

Returning to the castle, Handyman Negri learns from King Friday that his lizard friend -- Princess Margaret H. Lizard -- is a vegetarian who does not eat people or tigers. She is also a special lizard with the ability to change into different things. A phone call from Margaret Lizard informs the King that she will be arriving the next day.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about the disappointment that King Friday must feel about his friend arriving a day later than expected. In the kitchen, Mister Rogers takes out the modeling dough he made the previous day. Handling the dough, he sings What Do You Do With the Mad That You Feel.


Queen Sara mentions that King Friday and Princess Margaret H. Witch know each other from their days of attending The College of Princes and Princesses.
