Mister Rogers arrives with photos of artwork that viewers will see on a tour of an art museum that he has arranged. Encouraging viewers to pay close attention at the museum, Mister Rogers sings Look and Listen.

Upon arrival at the museum, Mister Rogers and viewers receive an extensive tour from Bay Judson who locates the original paintings that Mister Rogers had showed earlier.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, preparations continue for the Draw the Neighborhood Contest as Lady Aberlin works on her drawing. Lady Elaine Fairchilde tries to offer Lady Aberlin "ten" for her drawing so she can enter it in the contest as her own. Mr. McFeely delivers a letter to X the Owl from Sesame Street's Big Bird who has a drawing he would like to enter in the contest.

X is excited that Big Bird is coming to visit but Henrietta Pussycat is upset as she worries that she is no longer X's friend. Lastly, King Friday give his first hint about the surprise prize -- it comes in many colors.


The art gallery visited by Mister Rogers is the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, PA.

This episode is included on the DVD collection Mister Rogers Meets New Friends.
