Mister Rogers arrives with a collection of different cameras which he demonstrates for viewers. As he waits for an instant photograph to develop, Mister Rogers sings Everybody's Fancy.

Chef Brockett has made king and queen cookies and is making the rounds throughout the Neighborhood sharing his treats.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, reporters from the Neighborhood News, Marie Torre and Vic Miles, are interviewing King Friday and Sara Saturday about the history of their relationship.

At the Museum-Go-Round, Robert Troll is helping Lady Elaine as she continues painting the museum's columns. Ms. Torre talks to them about Sara Saturday before she is invited to paint a museum column herself.

Meanwhile, at the tree, Chef Brockett is sharing his cookies with X the Owl and Henrietta Pussycat. They speculate about what Sara Saturday will be called once she and King Friday are married. At the suggestion of Robert Troll, Sara decides on "Queen Sara Friday Saturday" -- or "Queen Sara" for short. Everyone retires to the T Room for tea and cookies.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers has set up a screen and after showing a movie camera, uses a projector to share a film about children pretending to be kings and queens.


Sara Saturday mentions to the reporters that her favorite color is blue.

Marie Torre and Vic Miles were both television personalities from KDKA in Pittsburgh.
