Mister Rogers arrives with a suitcase containing a teddy bear. He talks about how some people really love their teddy bears and shows a large heart cut-out he has brought with him. Also in the suitcase, is a bear costume which Mister Rogers puts on. Mr. McFeely delivers a tape about how people make stuffed bears.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin tells Queen Sara that she is "planning a little fun." As Lady Aberlin slips away, King Friday comes out to see how people are spending their time. The King is not happy that Queen Sara is simply enjoying the day.

Making a delivery to the Museum-Go-Round, Mr. McFeely encounters someone dressed in a bear costume. Opening the delivery, Lady Elaine finds her order of heart decorations which Mr. McFeely and the person in the bear costume hang around the outside of the museum.

The "bear" visits the tree where X has to convince Henrietta that it is friendly. Moving on to the clock, Daniel recognizes that the bear is a person in costume and after an ugga-mugga, he realizes that person is Lady Aberlin. Revealing her face, Lady Aberlin sings I Like Someone Who Looks Like You.

Returning to the castle, King Friday is not appreciative of the fact that Lady Aberlin has having fun and not doing any serious work.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers concludes by singing It's You I Like.


Mr. McFeely puts on the hat from the bear costume and sings a slightly altered version of the Speedy Delivery song: "...a bear-ly delivery..."

Lady Aberlin substitutes the word "love" into I Like Someone Who Looks Like You.
