Mister Rogers talks about wearing reading glasses and demonstrates a pair of glasses with "little telescopes" on them.

He then shows some pictures of fish before singing Everybody's Fancy. Sallie Boggs stops by to show Mister Rogers how to take better care of his fish. Together they look at the various kinds of fish in Mister Rogers' tank.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, it's twilight and Lady Aberlin and Daniel Striped Tiger have a very peaceful conversation before they sing the Creation Duet. On her way to the castle, Lady Aberlin stops to talk with X the Owl who is very excited by his lessons on Native Americans and nature.

At the castle, Neighbor Aber and Lady Aberlin comfort Prince Tuesday after he has a bad dream. After they all think about what King Friday and Queen Sara might be doing, Neighbor Aber sings a portion of the Creation Duet.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about having good dreams and bad dreams.


Before Make-Believe gets fully underway, the camera pans the Neighborhood to show what it looks like after dark.
