Mister Rogers arrives with an announcment he received while walking along the street. It is an invitation to Joe Negri's Music Shop to see a demonstration of television equipment.

At Negri's, he and Mister Rogers try out a video recorder and camera. As Mister Rogers operates the camera, Joe Negri picks up his guitar and sings You Are Special. After playing back the recording, Mister Rogers takes his turn in front of the camera as he plays the accordian. As he is leaving the shop, Mister Rogers is invited to a puppet show by two young friends -- Chrissy and Terri Thompson.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lade Elaine Fairchilde is wrapping up her news broadcast on MGR-TV as Lady Aberlin operates the camera. Commenting that she "loves to run the camera," Lady Aberlin is assigned to a new MGR program -- "Run With the Camera." After running in circles with the camera for a moment, an exhausted Lady Aberlin takes a seat as Handyman Negri and Edgar Cooke arrive for their public service announcement offering help to viewers with problems. X the Owl arrives for his program, "Flying with X," in which he describes various methods of flying. After making a rolling stool for Lady Aberlin to sit on as she operates the camera, Handyman Negri sings A Handy Lady and a Handy Man.

Back at the house, Mr. McFeely stops by a film about a third grade classroom.
