Mister Rogers arrives with two signs -- one that reads "Ladies" and another that reads "Men." He also has several pictures of people from throughout the Neighborhood which he separates by gender before singing I Like You As You Are. Picture Picture shows a film of male and female animals -- deer, lions, and sheep.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Henrietta Pussycat has a new dress and X the Owl does not understand why it is so special. He is more interested in Benjamin Franklin and science experiments. Lady Aberlin helps him to realize that different people like different things before she offers Henrietta a mirror to look at herself in her new dress. Lady Aberlin emphasizes that her favorite part is the pussycat inside the dress.

At the Museum-Go-Round, Lady Elaine Fairchilde teaches Lady Aberlin the cheer she learned at the scout jamboree. Handyman Negri arrives with a table which will be used for the surprise he and Lady Elaine are planning. After showing the difference between one of Corney's rockit's and a rocket that flies in the air, Lady Elaine and Handyman Negri reveal that they will be making a rocket. Dr. Bill agrees to be the rocket's first pilot and to fly it to Someplace Else. Unfortunately, the rocket falls apart before it takes off. Corney recognizes that a better launching pad is needed and offers to launch the rocket from the factory tomorrow.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about how boys and girls sometimes like to do things and play with toys that are are typically associated with the opposite gender. He concludes by singing Everybody's Fancy.
