Mister Rogers arrives with a homemade drum made by a young friend and uses lollipops as drumsticks to demonstrate the instrument. Suggesting that playing the drums is a good way to release angry feelings, he sings What Do You Do With the Mad That You Feel.

A drum set is already put together in the living room and Mr. Rawsthorne stops by for a short performance. He talks about learning to play the drums before playing along with a jazzy version of What Do You Do With the Mad That You Feel.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Dr. Marchl stops by the tree where he finds that Henrietta Pussycat has not been sleeping well due to Lady Elaine Fairchilde's excessive noise at night.

Moving on to the castle, Dr. Marchl learns from Lady Elaine that she has been dreaming about bears and believes that her dreams will come true. Having seen two bears in the Neighborhood, Lady Elaine feels that it is her duty to warn everyone else of their presence. Dr. Marchl explains that the bears were performers in the Neighborhood with their trainer. He goes on to explain that just because a person dreams something does not mean that it will happen. Lady Elaine goes inside the castle where she observes a performance by Johnson's Performing Bears.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers is talking on the telephone to Mr. Rawsthorne who suggests that he use the snare drum to sound like the roar of a bear. After pretending to be a bear, Mister Rogers talks about dreams and sings It's Good to Talk.

Notes

  • The jazzy version of What Do You Do With the Mad That You Feel played by Mr. Rawsthorne is presumably performed with Johnny Costa who do not appear on camera.
  • As the bears perform, several songs play in the background including Everybody's Fancy.
