Mister Rogers arrives with a flip-book which shows an animated creation featuring the Mister Rogers' Neighborhood logo. After feeding the fish, Mister Rogers sings I Like to Take Care of You. He then shows a print of Picasso's A Girl Before a Mirror and other Picasso works seen on Picture Picture.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday is posing for a variety of portraits by Lady Aberlin. As he poses, the King and his niece sing Everybody's Fancy.

Henrietta and X have completed their own artwork of the King which Miss Paulificate picks up from the tree. Their artwork features a flip-book made of leaves which shows a dancing King Friday.

At the Museum-Go-Round, Lady Elaine refuses to do a portrait of the King but instead offers a Picasso print.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers visits Brockett's Bakery where Sergio introduces him to a group of Spanish musicians who perform and demonstrate their various instruments. Mister Rogers is allowed to play a few of the instruments including a set of spoons and a rain stick.

Returning to his house, Mister Rogers uses a paper towel roll and some dry beans to make a rain stick of his own. Concluding for the day, Mister Rogers shows a painting made by Chef Brockett which was done on the back of an old cupboard door.


In this episode, Mister Rogers assures viewers that his fish are never neglected: "Even if I forget to feed them when we're together, I come back later and feed them so they're always taken care of."
