Mister Rogers arrives wearing a decorative turban and talks about how all people sound and look different. Sitting at the bench, he shares audio recordings of various characters in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe as he shows their pictures. After singing Everybody's Fancy, Mister Rogers tries on some other types of hats.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Royal Coach Saunders is exercising with King Friday. Meanwhile, Lady Elaine Fairchilde and X the Owl are birdwatching at the oak tree when Coach Saunders arrives for some more exercise. For fun, they decide to play a few rounds of hide and seek before Coach Saunders needs to depart.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers tries a few of the exercises demonstrated by Coach Saunders. Showing a card with the letter E, Mister Rogers makes its sounds loudly as he moves it closer to viewers and softer and he takes it away. Using other letter cards, he talks about different letters having different sounds and encourages viewers to have an "infinite variety party." He concludes by singing the Alphabet Song.
