Mister Rogers arrives with two stuffed cats made by a friend. Comparing to two, he suggests that that smaller cat might be the baby. After he hides the cats and asks viewers to guess where they are, Mister Rogers sings It's You I Like.

Betty Aberlin calls and invites Mister Rogers to her theatre where The Shadow Box Theatre is rehearsing. Mister Rogers learns about their unique puppets before watching part of their performance.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin is decorating in preparation for the circus coming to the Neighborhood of Make-Believe. Daniel Striped Tiger shares that he is nervous about them passing so close by his clock. Talking through his feelings with Lady Aberlin and Miss Paulificate helps him to feel better just in time for the circus parade to pass through. The circus performers gather at the castle to be welcomed by King Friday and Queen Sara.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings I'm Proud of You.


Betty invites Mister Rogers to visit her theatre despite the fact that she is not there herself. She tells him this when she calls.

The giraffe costume used in the circus parade is also seen in Episode 1160, Episode 1309, and Episode 1483.
