In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Bob Dog would like a pair of shoes to wear but Daniel's are much too small. At the Museum-Go-Round, Lady Elaine Fairchilde is having special on shoes and is happy to provide Bob Dog with two pair. Moving on the the castle, Bob Dog talks with Queen Sara who tells him that she does not like him because of his shoes but rather because he is her friend. To further encourage Bob Dog, she sings It's You I Like.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about growing before he concludes by singing It's You I Like.
