Mister Rogers arrives with an artist's model and explains how it is used to help an artists visualize a human body in various position. Looking at the many pieces of the model, he explains that "we're all one piece" and sings Everything Grows Together.

Having borrowed some modeling clay from Elsie Neal, Mister Rogers goes to the kitchen where he scuplts a mountain from the clay. Mrs. Neal stops by and uses clay to scuplt a person while Mister Rogers makes a horse. When asked about her daughter, Debbie, Mrs. Neal mentions that she is planning a camping trip. Mister Rogers asks if Debbie might be able to stop by and show him some of her camping equipment.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin is camping in Lady Elaine Fairchilde's back yard and is invited to join Handyman Negri in a two-person horse costume. Henrietta Pussycat and X the Owl have plans to play catch but X is having difficulty finding his cap. While she waits, Henrietta decides to join Lady Aberlin and Handyman Negri for a ride. X expresses his frustration as he takes offense to the thought of going to the ball field alone and waiting for Henrietta to arrive. Alone at the ball field, X soon finds that time alone can be enjoyable as he makes up new poems and sings It's Such a Good Feeling.

Back at the house, Debbie arrives to show Mister Rogers the equipment she will take on her camping trip.


Lady Aberlin agrees to let Handyman Negri be the head of the horse costume since she was the head the last time. This is in reference to a time they wore the same costume in Episode 1160. They also wear the horse costume in Episode 1283.
