Mister Rogers arrives with a toy pig which was made by a friend -- Adelia Moore. Visiting her house, Mister Rogers gets to see many other stuff animals animals she has made in addition to her various wall hangings and other art.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers shows a short film about a birthday celebration for a 100-year-old doll which had been passed down through one family's generations. After the film, Mister Rogers comments that "sometimes the oldest toys are the best."

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin is making a doll for Ana Platypus' birthday while Lady Elaine Fairchilde has decorated a hat with buttons. When Bob Dog stops by the Museum-Go-Round, Lady Elaine sings Give Me a Hat. Meanwhile, Daniel reveals plans for his gift to Ana -- a Magic Electric Supertronic Firemobile. At the castle, Elsie Jean Platypus expresses her concern for the fact that she doesn't know what to get Ana that won't disappoint her.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about gifts and how sometimes children hope for gifts that are very expensive: "There are lots of different reasons for getting and not getting presents. There are lots of ways to show people that you care about them." Concluding for the day, Mister Rogers sings Many Ways to Say I Love You.

Notes

  • When Bob Dog approaches the Museum-Go-Round, he and Lady Elaine have a humorous exchange as a result of her use of the French language:

    Lady Elaine: Hi, Bobby Doggy. How do you like my chapeau?
    Bob Dog: Oh...shampoo? Your hair looks real nice.
