Guests Van Cliburn

Mister Rogers arrives with the toy car from the previous day. Since one of the wheels was broken, he replaces all four with a more sturdy variety. After Mister Rogers shows the inside of his piano, he shares a film about people making pianos.

Chef Brockett stops by with a piano cake he has made for Van Cliburn at King Friday's request.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Van Cliburn plays a game of hide-and-seek with X the Owl and Henrietta Pussycat before moving on to the factory. Taking a special liking to Corney's piano rockit, Mr. Cliburn does not hesitate to buy it at a cost of four. Corney sings I'm a Man Who Manufactures before Chef Brockett requests Mr. Cliburn's presence at the castle.

At the castle, Mr. Cliburn is presented with the piano cake after he, King Friday, and Queen Sara remember a "former musical occasion" from one of Mr. Cliburn's previous visits to the Neighborhood.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about how company may come to visit but they eventually go away and he compares such visits to hide-and-seek. After playing hide-and-seek with viewers, Mister Rogers is visited again by Chef Brockett who brings a piece of the piano cake to share.
