Rogers uses a frame to concentrate on small sections of a large mural. Seeing a set of vegetables in one section of the mural, he reflects on a visit to an ""edible school yard"" (vegetable garden). In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday XIII is irritated when Purple Panda and his compatriot, Little Panda, fool him. He commands that they cancel all curiosity. (This costs the entire Neighborhood a chance to see a rolled-up piece of paper Mayor Maggie has brought.)
