Mister Rogers arrives with a metronome and describes how it works and how it is used. He moves his body and claps his hands to various tempos. Upside down, the metronome reminds Mister Rogers of a clock's pendulum and he shares a film about clocks. Preparing for Make-Believe, he realizes he has misplaced his wristwatch.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Daniel Striped Tiger is working on his clock before he goes to Someplace Else with Lady Aberlin to see the new washer-dryer-sorter-dumper. While Daniel is gone, Mr. Allmine stops to measure the clock. Upon his return, Daniel is upset to find that his clock is missing.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers returns the metronome to Negri's Music Shop and looks for his missing watch while he is there. Mr. Negri shows him a new kind of metronome.

Returning to his house, Mister Rogers finds his watch in the pocket of his jacket.


Mister Rogers mentions that a brochure was included with the film about clocks. This brochure was part of the collection shared with the Neighborhood Archive by former Assistant Art Director David Smith.
