Mister Rogers arrives with a scarf and talks about how they are made. Taking viewers along, he visits the home of Ann White, an expert weaver who demonstrates how she makes scarves.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Henrietta Pussycat is learning ballet from Iris Cloud, a dance instructor from the Dance Theatre of Harlem. Ms. Cloud uses a rainbow scarf as she dances for Henrietta and X. Lady Aberlin stops by the tree to invite everyone to Lady Elaine's Sometimes Happy Dance Studio.

Inside the studio, everyone arrives just in to for Lady Elaine to proudly present a performance by the Junior Tamburitzans.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers uses miniature life figures to demonstrate people dancing and sings a line from I'm Taking Care of You.


The Neighborhood of Make-Believe features the Junior Tamburitzans of Duquesne.
