Mister Rogers arrives with a large container but does not immediately reveal what is inside. Instead, he briefly goes into the bathroom where he shows a toothbrush before returning to the container to take out a gigantic toothbrush.

Mr. McFeely calls to say that he will be bringing by a video about how people make toothbrushes. While he waits, Mister Rogers sings Let's Think of Something to Do. Upon his arrival, Mr. McFeely shows some toothbrush handles that have not yet been manufactured into toothbrushes. Together, he and Mister Rogers watch the video about how toothbrushes are made.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin opens the laughing box for an anxious Robert Troll. Inside, they find a small toothbrush as well as the device used to record the sound of laughter. Also inside the box is a smaller compartment holding a small sticker which reads "UR" and instructions for the person who finds the sticker. As the Ultimate Researcher, Lady Aberlin is given a limited amount of time to change into "what [she's] always wanted to be." With the sticker on her forehead, Lady Aberlin turns herself into a tiger which frightens Robert Troll.

Curious to see the reaction of others, "Lady A Tiger" sets out throughout the Neighborhood. Handyman Negri joins her as she goes to the school where the children are learning about taking care of their teeth. Ana Platypus and Prince Tuesday question why the tiger wears a sticker on her forehead while Daniel Tiger feels like the tiger seems very familiar.

At the castle, King Friday greets Princess Zelda who is interested in learning more about her family and requests the help of Lady Aberlin.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers puts on a few different paper masks and an overcoat as he remembers dressing up in costumes when he was a boy. He concludes by singing I'm Still Myself Inside.
