Mister Rogers arrives with two model cars which he uses to describe a minor accident he had seen earlier in the day. After explaining that play can be a way of dealing with frightening experiences, he sings I Did Too.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Corney and Lady Aberlin accidentally leave a toy car on the Trolley track which causes the Trolley to crash into it. Corney takes the damaged car back to his factory as Lady Aberlin escorts Dr. Meow Meow Meow to the tree where he examines Henrietta's eyes. After the examination, Lady Aberlin sings Exercise Your Eyes.

Mr. McFeely arrives with a delivery from the Platypus family -- presents for all -- but the package is not to be opened yet. Lady Elaine Fairchilde sees the package and doesn't know if she can wait to open it.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings Exercise Your Eyes before he remembers the last time he had his eyes examined by Dr. Mallinger. Mr. McFeely stops by with a curious delivery -- a box marked "secret" which he will return for tomorrow.


Mister Rogers also visits Dr. Mallinger in Episode 0024 and Episode 1728.
