Mister Rogers arrives with a hula hoop which he places on the floor. He asks viewers to pretend that they have one as well as he walks circles around the hoop. Sitting inside the circle, he sings You Are Special.

Mr. McFeely stops by with a toy top. Mister Rogers takes it to the floor where he watches closely as the top spins around.

At Betty's Little Theater, Mister Rogers watches as Betty Aberlin works with a group of children as they express their feelings through dance. Johnny Costa is there playing the piano.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, X the Owl is strapped to the Museum-Go-Round as he walks in circles to make it rotate. Lady Elaine Fairchilde wants to use the windmill at Someplace Else to make the museum go around but it is currently being used to pump water through the new royal fountain. She expresses her frustration by singing I Want to Win. As she talks with Handyman Negri and Lady Aberlin, Lady Elaine discovers that the Museum-Go-Round is spinning on its own after X the Owl accidentally sits on a power switch which turns on a motor.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about expressing feelings as he sings I Did Too.

Notes

  • As Mister Rogers sings You Are Special, he momentarily forgets the words. Fumbling the line for only a second, he laughs and continues with the song.
  • As the episode transitions to Betty's Little Theater, Let's Be Together Today plays in the background.
  • Nancy Carbonara is seated at the theater and only appears on camera for a short second. Mr. Rogers mentions that the children are from the nursery school where his friend Mrs. Carbonara works.
