Mister Rogers arrives with a bag of alfalfa pellets and a bag of steamed oats -- both used for sheep food by farmers. Putting a small amount of the grain on the kitchen table, Mister Rogers uses three cups to cover it and play a game similar to the classic shell game.

Mr. McFeely stops by with a film about a day on a farm.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Harriett Elizabeth Cow is working hard on the farm at Someplace Else when a magician appears. Master Mister Magic Maker offers to use magic to take away all of her work and set her free. Although she is amazed by the magician's tricks, Ms. Cow refuses his offer as she enjoys her work.

At the castle, Master Mister Magic Maker performs some magic for King Friday and Queen Sara. They go inside the castle to talk about magic tricks just as Prince Tuesday comes outside and begins playing with a hammer near the statue of King Monday IX.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers joins Francois Clemmons on a visit to the Brown's Marionette Theater where preparations are being made for a performance of The Elves, and the Shoemaker, and the Shoemaker's Wife. Mister Rogers visits with the Browns and the other performers who demonstrate the various marionettes they will use in the performance.

Returning to his house, Mister Rogers cleans up the kitchen as he concludes for the day.
