Mister Rogers arrives with an electric heater which he turns on in the kitchen and explains that sometimes it is difficult to tell when things are hot. He goes on to show the heater used in his aquarium as well as the radiator in his television house before sharing a film about a family using the fireplace in their home.

Visiting the his neighbors, Mister Rogers asks Bob and Judy Brown to see the forced-air furnace they use to heat their marionette theater. After Mr. Brown explains how the furnace works, he and his wife surprise Mister Rogers by showing him their newly created marionettes of King Friday XIII, Henrietta Pussycat, and X the Owl. As the marionettes are maneuvered by the puppeteers, Mister Rogers provides the voices for a short interaction between the characters (including King Friday singing Propel Propel Propel Your Craft).

Returning to the house, Mister Rogers talks about using dolls and puppets to make up stories.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Henrietta Pussycat wants to be in the upcoming opera but is too shy to ask for a part. Reardon passes by with a collection of sketches showing the costumes to be worn in the opera and invites Henrietta and X to listen in on Yoshi Ito who is singing outside the castle. With encouragement from X, Henrietta asks to be in the opera and is given a singing part by Reardon.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings a portion of the song Henrietta will sing in the opera. He concludes by showing how warm a person's body is by letting an ice cube melt in his hand.
