Mister Rogers arrives with a pair of swimming flippers which he puts on and describes how they are used. Inflating a flotation ring, he talks about learning to swim and being safe by staying in the shallow water at first. After singing Sometimes People Are Good, Mister Rogers pretends to swim to the kitchen where he feeds the fish.

Mrs. Minchin stops by on her way to go scuba diving with a friend. She is dressed in full scuba gear and explains what her various equipment is used for. After Mrs. Minchin leaves, Mister Rogers watches a film about a scuba diver in a coral reef.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Joey Hollingsworth is working at the factory. He dances his way to the Museum-Go-Round where he asks Mrs. Frogg for permission to use the Frogg pond for swimming and sailing. He shows X the Owl a toy boat that he got for Daniel Striped Tiger.

Daniel is invited to the pond where he and Mr. Hollingsworth sail the toy boat. Mr. Hollingsworth explains that he brough Daniel the special gift because they are friends. X is excited to learn that he will be getting a special gift of his own tomorrow.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about waiting being a part of growing. He shares an ivory carving of a fish made by his friend Miss Macy. He watches a film of her at work on a carving.

Notes

  • Moving from the clock to the pond, Daniel is given a piggy-back ride by Joey Hollingsworth. As Daniel settles into the pond from Mr. Hollingsworth's shoulder, movement can be clearly seen behind Mr. Hollingsworth as Fred Rogers returns his hand to the Daniel puppet.
  • The film of Miss Macy -- the artist carving from ivory -- is also shown in Episode 1053. The whale carvings are also shown in this episode.
