Mister Rogers arrives with a night shirt and blanket. Trying on the night shirt, he sits on the floor covering himself with the blanket. Mister Rogers remembers his childhood bedtime routine and talks about where different animals sleep.

At the McFeelys' house, Mrs. McFeely is busy working on bills for the Speedy Delivery service. Mister Rogers spends some time talking with the McFeelys about where animals live and sleep. Mr. McFeely happens to have a film on this very topic ready to show in his living room.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, the sun is setting as Handyman Negri is turning off the castle waterfall for the night. He receives a call from Daniel Striped Tiger who cannot seem to decide if he wants to stay the night at Grandpere's tower. Malcolm Apricot Dinko is nervous about the idea so Daniel decides to stay at the clock. Handyman Negri reassures Daniel of his feelings and tells him that it is okay if he is not ready to stay overnight away from home.

After informing Grandpere of Daniel's decision, Handyman Negri shares some french fries with Grandpere and learns that Donkey Hodie has a farm at Someplace Else. Interested in seeing the farm, Handyman Negri visits Someplace Else where Donkey Hodie mentions that he is looking for a helper to lighten his workload.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings Pretending as he folds his blanket.
