Mister Rogers arrives with a purple backpack from which he takes out a drum-playing elephant. He explains that the elephant runs on batteries and only works when there are batteries inside. Before singing It's You I Like, Mister Rogers talks about how people do not have batteries: "We have life. We're alive. It's a great wonder, isn't it?"

Paying a visit to Tim Adams, a percussion performer and instructor, Mister Rogers learns about a variety of instruments. He heads back to his house when Mr. Adams' student, I-Jen, arrives for her lesson.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, H.J. Elephant is dressed in his outerspace costume as tells Lady Aberlin about pretending to fly to the moon. In doing so, he makes a loud trumpet sound which causes alarm at the tree as X and Henrietta begin drumming to keep away the things they fear.

Approaching the tree, Lady Aberlin finds that X and Henrietta's doors have been secured with metal bars to protect them. X the Owl is very vague as he explains the remote controlled drums to Lady Aberlin. Agreeing to stop the drumming, Lady Aberlin lets X know that his and Henrietta's neighborhos are always available to talk to them about their fears.

Meanwhile, at the clock, Prince Tuesday and Daniel are dressed in their own outerspace costumes for an upcoming parade. Lady Aberlin is eager to take part as well and finds herself magically suited in an outerspace costume from Neighbor Aber's backpack. Immediately, the drumming at the tree begins again.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers writes the words "You" and "Friend" on separate pieces of paper. As he sings You Are Special, he holds up the words any time they are used in the song. Returning to his backpack, Mister Rogers takes out and shares a book called Animal Sounds -- a book complete with pictures and actual animal sounds played by pressing buttons to the side.
