Mister Rogers arrives with a small plant and a handful of beans. He explains how the plant grew from a bean and refers to it as a small "bean stalk."

Visiting the Browns' marionette studio next door, Mister Rogers enjoys their production of Jack and the Beanstalk. Back at the house, he explains that the stories can be told in many different ways and encourages viewers to be creative in their own storytelling.


Transitioning from the house to the Browns' studio, Let's Be Together Today plays in the background.
