Mister Rogers starts with a visit to a children's dance studio, where participants act out a story.

At the dance studio, Mister Rogers watches as dancers perform and musicians play.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday sincerely apologizes to Hula Mouse for his previous behavior. Everyone gathers at the Museum-Go-Round for Lady Elaine's exhibit of round things.

Back at the house, Mr. McFeely stops by with a film on how marbles are made.


The segment of this episode about the dance studio was filmed in association with the Dance Alloy Theater in Pittsburgh, PA.

The film about marbles shown by Mr. McFeely was shot at Marble King in Paden City, WV. This same film was shown in Episode 1524 from the Conflict series.

This episode is "dedicated to our friend and colleague Bob Millslagle with deep affection and gratitude."

This episode is included on the DVD collection Mister Rogers Meets New Friends.
