Mister Rogers arrives with a container of tongue depressors and popsicle sticks and talks about the difference between small and large. With a large piece of clay and the sticks, he creates an imaginative sculpture as he sings I Like to Take My Time. As he finishes his sculpture, Mister Rogers remembers a film about children making things out of popsicle sticks. As he remembers, he sings parts of It's You I Like and You Are Special.

Audrey Roth stops by with a group of cheerleaders who perform a few cheers. Mister Rogers explains that cheerleaders help people do things better.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Corney is having trouble with his lathe as he makes a present for Prince Tuesday. When Miss Paulificate tries to fix the problem for him, Corney refuses her help and wants to do it himself. At the suggestion of Robert Troll, he and Miss Paulificate cheer for Corney to encourage him as he tries again. Dr. Bill is impressed to find that Corney is starting to master a machine that once troubled him.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about the importance of perseverance before he sings I'm Proud of You. Audrey returns and uses strips of old newspaper to make a pompom. She takes Mister Rogers outside for a short performance by a drill team.

Notes

  • The film of children making things from popsicle sticks was previously seen in Episode 1133.
  • As Corney works and Robert Troll and Miss Paulificate cheer him on, I'm a Man Who Manufactures plays in the background.
  • Dr. Bill mentions that the last time Corney used a lathe, he got a "nasty pinch." This is in reference to the events of Episode 1183.
  • As the episode transitions from Make-Believe back to the house, I'm Proud of You plays in the background.
