Mister Rogers arrives with a box of false mustaches and tries on a few before he sings You Are Special. Mr. McFeely delivers a collection of wigs and spends a few moments with Mister Rogers trying them on. Betty Aberlin stops by and tries on some wigs, as well.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday does not recognize Lady Aberlin when she puts on a wig. After his niece reveals her true identity, King Friday tries on the wig for himself. Prince Tuesday becomes somewhat confused and frightened when he sees his father's new appearance.

At King Friday's request, Lady Aberlin brings Reardon to the castle where he initially goes unrecognized due to the false mustache he is wearing. King Friday assigns Reardon to create a new opera to be performed on Thursday. Reardon will play the part of an organ grinder and Lady Aberlin will be a zookeeper.

Back at the house, Betty Aberlin and Mister Rogers make plans for Ino A. Horse to be included in the opera. They sing You're a Fine Horse before Mister Rogers invites viewers to sing along.

Mr. McFeely returns to retrieve the wigs. With him he has a live rabbit named Thumper.
