Mister Rogers arrives and puts on a lab coat because he is feeling "scientific." Opening the large cardboard box he brought with him, he takes out a small toy turtle, a conch shell, a real turtle, and a real armadillo. After mentioning the protective shell on the turtle and armadillo, Mister Rogers talks about how some people act differently towards animals. As the armadillo walks at his feet, he sings Sometimes People Are Good.

Mr. McFeely stops by to deliver a large case containing a suit of armor. Opening the case, Mister Rogers eagerly tries on several of the pieces before going to Picture Picture to see various kinds of armor.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday has had his portrait done and is talking with Scientist Alder about different forms of paint. Scientist Alder demonstrates a simple experiment to show the difference between water-based and oil-based paints. Lady Elaine Fairchilde asks for some paint to make the sky red on a painting she is working on.

Once the painting is complete, Lady Elaine takes it to the Eiffel Tower where she shares it with Grandpere. Meanwhile, the Trolley delivers the toy turtle to Scientist Alder who takes it to X the Owl. Lady Elaine shares her painting at the tree as well where X agrees to teach Lady Elaine about birdwatching.

Back at the house, Mr. McFeely returns to pick up the suit of armor.
