Mister Rogers arrives printed cards showing the words to It's You I Like. After reading through the lyrics, he watches a film about children playing set to a recording of the song.

At Brockett's Bakery, Mister Rogers watches as Murray Hoffman teaches Chef Brockett to make different types of donuts. A pantomime group stops by the bakery and Chef Brockett explains that the group's coach, Tim Scanlon, cannot hear and understands others by reading their lips. Mister Rogers joins them at the bakery's soda shop and watches as Mr. Scanlon recites Mary Had a Little Lamb using sign language.

Returning to the house, Mister Rogers talks about how people are sometimes born deaf and other times deafness occurs after they are very sick. Deafness does not occur because a person is bad or heard something they should not have. He encourages viewers to ask questions of anyone they might know who is deaf.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, the Trolley passes through with a tray of donuts spelling "O.C.S." as X the Owl anxiously waits to find out who his new Owl Correspondence School teacher will be and what lesson he will learn. Meanwhile, Lady Elaine Fairchilde and Francois Clemmons remember the recent opera.

Back at the house, Mister Roger practices lip reading.


The film shared in this episode is also seen in Episode 1218, Episode 1239, Episode 1312, and Episode 1409.

Mister Rogers briefly mentions other Neighborhood friends who perform pantomime including Marcel Marceau and Mime Walker.
