Previous Episode: 1126
Next Episode: 1128

Mister Rogers arrives with a bottle of bubble solution which he takes to the kitchen where he blows bubbles as he sings You Are Special.

Visiting the workshop of Jan Zandhuis, Mister Rogers watches as Mr. Zandhuis demonstrates the art of glass blowing. Mister Rogers helps complete a wooden box while Mr. Zandhuis finishes an assortment of glass balls for Mrs. Saunders. Then Mrs. Saunders stops by the shop and explains how she will use the glass balls to teach her students about addition and subtraction. Before Mister Rogers leaves, Mr. Zandhuis gives him a small glass crown.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday requests that Lady Aberlin use cut-outs of small crowns to teach Prince Tuesday about addition and subtraction. After a few failed attempts to teach the two-week-old prince, Mrs. Saunders arrives at the castle and explains that Prince Tuesday is much too small to learn a skill like subtraction. She compliments Tuesday by singing a "handsome" version of You Are Pretty.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about learning at school and at play.


As the episode transitions to Mr. Zandhuis' glass shop, Let's Be Together Today plays in the background.

Mrs. Saunders sings a "handsome" version of You Are Pretty to Prince Tuesday:

You are handsome, you're a prince
You have wonderful eyes and baby hair
You are there
Inside and outside
Surely you are a prince
