Mister Rogers shows a film of his wife's piano recital before going to Elsie Neal's Craft Shop to return a table cloth. Howard Brock demonstrates his work with leather with the help of his grandson Jeffrey.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Professor Scanlon is a guest on MGR-TV and X the Owl is jealous because his teacher has brought a friend with him. Professor Scanlon and his friend, Darren Grady, perform magic tricks on the air. X the Owl feels better when he realizes how important his friendship is to Professor Scanlon -- especially when he realizes that the tricks performed on TV were ones he taught to his professor.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about how it can be hard to share the people you love.


Among others, the guests at Mrs. Rogers' recital include Bob Trow, Johnny Costa, Audrey Roth, Elsie Neal, Don Brockett, Mrs. Brockett, Francois Clemmons, and Natalie Baker,

A film featuring Darren Grady was shown on Episode 1439.
