Mister Rogers shares a picture of Ella Jenkins -- a children's musician who is staying with his family at his real home. With him, he has brought a few of her instruments which she plays as she sings when she arrives a minutes later.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, everyone has gathered under the big-top to enjoy the circus performance. King Friday XIII recognizes that Purple Panda has found a group of friends and work that he enjoys. The King and Queen grant him permission to go away with circus. He is given a blanket to take with him to remember his friends in Make-Believe.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about various ways to show love before he concludes by singing Many Ways To Say I Love You.


Ella Jenkins sings two songs with Mister Rogers: "You'll Sing a Song" and "Animals in the Zoo."

As she is leaving, Ella Jenkins mentions that she is going to Francois Clemmons' studio to help with a children's music class.

According to the circus ringmaster, Renay Rak and Rosalene Rak are the acrobats, Art Jennings is the juggler, and the rest of the circus includes Oliver Clown, Black and White Panda, Purple Panda and the tamest lion in the world.

A few of the circus acts are performed to familiar music including It's Such a Good Feeling and I Like To Take My Time.
