Next Episode: 1193

Mister Rogers arrives with a book of pictures called Look Again! in which readers are to look at a small section of a picture and try to guess what they are looking at. After sharing the book, he sings I Like to Be Told.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Van Cliburn returns to play a piano recital for King Friday. Lady Aberlin asks Mr. Cliburn to wear a costume during the performance to see if the King can recognize who he is.

Inside the castle's Music Room, a fully-costumed Van Cliburn goes unrecognized by the royal couple at first. Once he begins to play the piano, they are certain that their guest is indeed their friend Mr. Cliburn. Removing the costume, Mr. Cliburn continues his performance for the King and Queen.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers is invited to Negri's Music Shop to see a slide trombone that is being repaired by Mr. Negri's friend Joe Dallas. With the trombone repaired, Mr. Negri and Mr. Dallas play Everybody's Fancy.

Returning to his house, Mister Rogers concludes by asking viewers to guess what sounds he is making when his back is turned. The first sound is a crow call and the second is hands clapping.
