Mister Rogers arrives with a book called Animal Time! which he reads while Joe Negri plays his guitar. Noticing that each string on Mr. Negri's guitar is different, Mister Rogers makes mention that every person is different. With Mr. Negri playing his guitar, Mister Rogers sings Look and Listen.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin is dressed in a lion costume but is quickly recognized by King Friday. The King asks Lady Aberlin for her help in tending to Prince Tuesday's recent change in mood. Meanwhile, Handyman Negri is looking for Prince Tuesday as it is time for his guitar lesson.

Setting out to find the Prince, Lady Aberlin first stops at the tree where X the Owl shares that Prince Tuesday has seemed especially glum lately.

Joining Handyman Negri and Daniel at the clock, Lady Aberlin learns that Prince Tuesday was playing his own guitar behind the clock. The Prince comes out and expresses his frustration -- he can no longer play his guitar because his robe gets in the way.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about the importance of playing and talking about things that are bothering you. Mr. McFeely delivers a video about how people make guitars. After watching the video, Mister Rogers takes a cardboard guitar from his closet and pretends to play it as he sings This is Just the Day.
