Mister Rogers steps out on the porch where there are two ducks -- George and Helen -- in a basket. Mr. McFeely has asked Mister Rogers to watch the ducks for a while. After a few moments, Mr. McFeely arrives with some water and bread for the ducks and also delivers an invitation to Mister Rogers. The invitation is from Mr. Clown and the Vagabond Marionettes requesting Mister Rogers' presence at their upcoming performance.

Mister Rogers prepares to attend the performance by changing into his coat and singing Let's Be Together Today.

At the Vagabond Theater, Mister Rogers is greeted by Mr. Clown who welcomes him to the performance of Rumpelstiltskin. As Mister Rogers takes a seat, the performance begins. Following the performance, Mister Rogers thanks the marionettes and the puppeteers for their fine production.

Notes

  • When Mister Rogers thanks the Vagabond puppeteers, the camera zooms out showing very clearly that they are in a television studio with the boom mic fully visible.

  • Vincent Anthony and Mitchell Edmonds, two of the puppeteers in this episode, founded the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta.
