Mister Rogers look at a photo album belonging to Mrs. McFeely which features childhood pictures of friends throughout the Neighborhood. After sharing the photos in the album, he moves to the kitchen with a basket of vegetables he has brought with him. Mister Rogers decides to share the vegetables with Bob Trow since Mr. Trow helps him with his garden.

As Mister Rogers is leaving to see Bob Trow, Mr. McFeelys stops by with a package of films Mister Rogers had ordered from Film Library Services. One of his other deliveries for the day is for Mr. Trow and Mister Rogers agrees to take the package with him.

At Bob Trow's workshop, Mr. Trow has been learning to be a bee keeper and shows his various equipment to Mister Rogers. The packaged delivered to Mr. Trow is a film about bee keeping that he and Mister Rogers watch together. Mister Rogers shares the vegetables with his friend before returning to his hosue where he talks about how bees sometimes sting to protect themselves. On the floor, he finds a childhood photo of Bob Trow that had fallen from the album.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday is playing his bass violin for Robert Troll but is interupted by the sound of X the Owl playing the harmonica. Robert Troll is sent to find the source of the sound and finds that X is practicing as part of his current OCS lesson. The lesson on the history of owl music requires him to compose new music for a great owl singer. X is upset when he learns that Robert Troll has been sent to stop his harmonica playing. When X protests, King Friday suggests that they play music together.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers opens up a pole bean and sings Everybody's Fancy. He goes on to show the inside of several other vegetables, as well.


Included in Mrs. McFeely's picture album are childhood photos of Joe Negri, Betty Aberlin, Mr. McFeely, Mrs. McFeely, Audrey Roth, and Bob Trow.

The photo album was delivered by Mr. McFeely the previous day in Episode 1224.
