Mister Rogers arrives with a pair of chopsticks which he compares to a fork and spoon. Mr. McFeely arrives with a film about people using chopsticks to feed themselves. In the kitchen, Mister Rogers attempts to pick up carrot sticks with the chopsticks.

At Bob Trow's workshop, Mr. Trow is building a bird house for a "troglodytes aedon" -- a wren.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday XIII has a new pet -- a wooden bird on a stick he has named "Troglodytes Aedon."

Lady Aberlin, who has been caring for Purple Panda, has lost track of her friend and is searching for him throughout Make-Believe. Paul and Pauline Purple briefly appear and inform her that Purple Panda has done a "sixteen" which means he cannot return to Planet Purple.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings I Like To Be Told. He concludes for the day by making his own pet bird on a stick.

Notes

  • The writing on the chopsticks says "happiness / wealth / long life / comfort / health."
  • Mr. McFeely cannot stay to watch the film about chopsticks. He must return home where he and Mrs. McFeely will be grooming Brambles -- the horse seen on Episode 1283.
