Mister Rogers arrives with a fish made from a sponge that was given to him by Audrey Roth. Taking it to the fish tank, he compares it to the real fish. Audrey stops by and shows a funny fast film of a time she cleaned an airplane.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Mr. McFeely flies to the Land of Allmine in search of a rainbow. Mr. McFeely and Mr. Allmine find many kinds of bows, but no rainbows. When they believe they have found a rainbow, it turns out to be only a model of a rainbow trout. Wondering if the rainbow trout is close enough, Mr. McFeely takes it back to Make-Believe where King Friday XIII is none too pleased. Mr. McFeely's quest continues.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers visits Negri's Music Shop where Nathan Davis is playing music with Johnny Costa and the band. When he returns to his house, Mister Rogers makes a musical instrument from a comb and waxed paper.


The rainbow trout model is item #64837 in Mr. Allmine's collection.

Natalie Baker is shopping at Negri's Music Shop when Mister Rogers arrives.
