Mister Rogers arrives with a record of Japanese music and a set of paint brushes. After setting up a record player, he "draws a song" by painting as the music plays and talks about expressing feelings through art.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Yoshi Ito sings for King Friday XIII and his family in the castle's S Room. She concludes her performance by singing Lullaby to Prince Tuesday.

Lady Aberlin introduces Miss Ito throughout Make-Believe. After singing for Henrietta Pussycat and X the Owl, Miss Ito is encouraged by Lady Elaine Fairchilde to keep her voice all to herself by singing into a paper bag and closing it tightly.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers explains that a voice cannot be held inside a paper bag. He takes out one of his own records and plays It's Such a Good Feeling explaining that the sound on the record came from inside himself.

Mr. McFeely stops by with Amos, a large St. Bernard dog which Mister Rogers once saw as a puppy. He concludes by singing Lullaby.


The record Mister Rogers plays near the end of the episode is the 1970 version of A Place of Our Own.

Amos the St. Bernard was first seen as a puppy in Episode 1109 from 1970.
