Mister Rogers goes to the kitchen where he has left a box of toy animals from the day before. Taking them out, he matches the young animals to their mothers before he sings Everybody Has a History.

Mrs. McFeely stops by with a copy of Pet Show! -- a book about animals which Mister Rogers sits at the couch to read.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Handyman Negri is at the Platypus mound where Ana is learning to talk. When Ana is able to say "moo," Handyman Negri decides to takes her to Someplace Else to meet Harriett Elizabeth Cow. On their way, Lady Elaine Fairchilde declares it shameful that Ana has been taught to moo and tries to teach her to say "Aunt Lady Elaine."

At Someplace Else, Harriett Elizabeth Cow is hard at work but delighted to meet Ana Platypus. Meanwhile, Lady Elaine lurks in the background, clearly jealous as she watches Ms. Cow gets a kiss from both Ana and Handyman Negri.

Handyman Negri and Ana return to the Neighborhood of Make-Believe where they visit with X the Owl and Henrietta Pussycat.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about there being many was to communicate before he sings Please Don't Think It's Funny. He encourages young viewers to share with him by writing letters and drawing pictures.
