Everyone has different skills

Mister Rogers enters with a toy piano and a yo-yo. He explains that he can play the piano, but he cannot work a yo-yo. He and Marilyn Barnett do circle exercises with their arms. In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Neighbor Aber is doing arm exercises while Prince Tuesday plays a small toy piano. Mayor Maggie arrives and gives a yo-yo to Neighbor Aber who has difficulty making it work. Prince Tuesday, however, is quite good with the yo-yo. King Friday and Mayor Maggie play a song together. At the clock, Daniel performs a disappearing trick for Neighbor Aber and Prince Tuesday. King Friday calls everyone back to the castle to see Prince Tuesday use the yo-yo. King Friday is frustrated that he can’t make the yo-yo work, so he outlaws all yo-yos in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe. Back at the house, Mr. McFeely delivers a videotape about how people make wooden yo-yos. Marilyn Barnett returns with her friend Evan who shows off several impressive yo-yo tricks. Thinking of Evan’s talent as well as Daniel Striped Tiger’s simple disappearing trick, Mister Rogers reminds viewers that everybody’s talent is important.
