Mister Rogers arrives with a music box. He shows the movement inside and explains how it works. After winding and demonstrating the music box, Mister Rogers sings Look and Listen.

At Negri's Music Shop, Mister Rogers watches a a barbershop quartet finishes their rehearsal. Once they are finished, Larry Huthenreith (a member of the quartet) shares a collection of music boxes that has been in his family for years.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin and Lady Elaine Fairchilde enjoy the sounds of a music box. Harriett Elizabeth Cow arrives at the Museum-Go-Round and mentions the prize Donkey Hodie was given by Grandpere. Lady Elaine, of course, wants a prize of her own and decides that she will form a singing trio with Lady Aberlin and Harriett Elizabeth Cow called the "Make-Believe Sweethearts." With the music box playing and all three singers singing different songs, the noise is too much for X the Owl to handle. He suggests that the Make-Believe Sweethearts could be good if they would all work together.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about the difference between a duet, a trio, and a quartet. He concludes with an animated film about numbers.
