Mister Rogers arrives with a pair of snow shoes which he takes outside to try on. He talks about how different kinds of footwear help people navigate various conditions. He goes on to share a few Eskimo words having researched the unfamiliar terms at the library.

Chef Brockett stops by and remembers a time that he and Mister Rogers walked in the sand together. He invites Mister Rogers to the bakery where he makes snow pudding. While Chef Brockett and Mrs. Schenk gather the ingredients in the back of the bakery, Mister Rogers minds the front of the store.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Elaine Fairchilde is offered some snow pudding by Chef Brockett but she wants real snow instead. When Francois Clemmons passes by singing the words "Yes No," Lady Elaine thinks it sounds like he is saying "Yeah Snow." Using her boomerang, she makes it snow all across the Neighborhood of Make-Believe.

Returning to the house from the bakery, Mister Rogers finds a pair of snow skis delivered by Mr. McFeely. After explaining how the skis are worn, he shares a film about people skiiing in the snow.


The film of Mister Rogers and Chef Brockett at the beach is also seen in Episode 1238.

While Mister Rogers minds the bakery, he sells two loaves to raisin break to Joe Abeln -- a member of the Neighborhood studio crew.

The recipe for snow pudding is featured in Around the Neighborhood - Volume 1, Number 5 as well as the 1975 book, Julie Eisenhower's Cookbook for Children.

At the bakery, the hat and apron Chef Brockett had just been wearing moments before at Mister Rogers' house are hanging in the corner. Chef Brockett proceeds to put them on again after entering.
