Mister Rogers takes out a blanket and makes a "blanket mountain" by covering his knees. With a bag full of toys that he brought with him, he plays on his makeshift mountain. Still covered on the floor, Mister Rogers reads "The Land of Counterpane" -- a poem by Robert Louis Stevenson -- before singing Let's Be Together Today.

Lady Aberlin stops by wearing roller skates and helps Mister Rogers put on a pair himself. After they skate together, Lady Aberlin leaves for the Neighborhood of Make-Believe to give a pair of skates to Tadpole Frogg.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin gives the skates to Tad who has been sick but is feeling better. Mrs. Frogg has told Tad that even though he is feeling better, she would like him to play near the Frogg pond for a few days. As they pretend to skate, they are joined by X the Owl who stays to play with Tad.

Lady Aberlin visits with Henrietta Pussycat on her way to the castle and learns that Henrietta no longer skates since she spends more time climbing. At the castle, Lady Aberlin wants to show her skates to King Friday and is told by Edgar Cooke that he and Sara Saturday are in the R Room listening to records.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers folds up his blanket as he concludes for the day.

Notes

  • "The Land of Counterpane" was written by Robert Louis Stevenson about his experiences playing in bed when he was young.
  • The scene featuring Betty Aberlin skating with Mister Rogers is a pre-recorded film showing them skating on the sidewalk in a residential neighborhood.
