Mister Rogers arrives with pictures of parents drawn by some young Neighborhood friends. After talking about how a person's feelings can often be represented through facial expressions, Mister Rogers sings Just For Once.

Mr. McFeely stops by with a book called Fur, Feathers, and Hair which Mister Rogers shares with viewers. The book describes the many physical differences between Henrietta Pussycat and X the Owl.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Handyman Negri is playing his guitar outside the tree for X the Owl and Henrietta Pussycat. Moving on to the castle, he plays for the royal family and King Friday becomes upset when Prince Tuesday smiles and Queen Sara but not at him. Soon enough, the prince recognizes his father much to King Friday's delight.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings Many Ways to Say I Love You before Mr. McFeely returns with an Old English sheepdog.


Mister Rogers mentions that the drawings of parents were made by children in Mrs. Saunders' class at the Neighborhood nursery school.

Fur, Feathers, and Hair was also shared in Episode 0047.
