Mister Rogers arrives with a set of test tubes which he takes to the kitchen for an experiment. He fills large and small tubes with colored water to show the differences in their volumes. After pouring some of the water in the sink, Mister Rogers sings You Can Never Go Down the Drain. In the bathroom, he shows other drains that are commonly found in houses.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday would like to have a waterfall at the castle so he orders Handyman Negri to continuously pour water between two pitchers. When Donkey Hodie suggests installing a real waterfall that could be connected to the windmill at Someplace Else, King Friday provides two days for the project to be complete. At Handyman Negri's request, Corney orders the pipes needed for the royal waterfall.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers compares water flowing through pipes to milk going through a drinking straw. In the back yard, he shows a garden hose before thinking about children playing outside in a sprinkler.

As he cleans up the kitchen, Mister Rogers spills some of the colored water on the floor and on his feet. After cleaning up the spill, he changes his socks as he concludes for the day.


Picture Picture greets Mister Rogers with Claude Monet's Impression Sunrise.

The distance between King Friday's castle and the windmill at Someplace Else is 394 7/8 feet.

It's Such a Good Feeling plays in the background during the film of children playing in the water.
