Often children wish for a pet for their birthday, just as Ana Platypus does in this episode. It's nighttime in Make-Believe, and tomorrow is Ana's birthday. She's wishing for a kitten, even if Lady Elaine has something much different in mind - a parade with a whale, apes, and Purple Panda. And Daniel Tiger is finding it hard to wait for his friend Ana's big day and to give her his special home-made gift. Mister Rogers is thinking a lot about pets too, as he takes a neighbor's dog on a walk through the neighborhood. Includes the songs "I Think It's Very Hard to Wait", "I'm Taking Care of You" and "Toy Truck". Regular Neighbors include Chuck Aber (Neighbor Aber), Betty Aberlin (Lady Aberlin), Don Brockett (Chef Brockett), Joe Negri (Handyman Negri), David Newell (Mr. McFeely), Audrey Roth (Miss Paulificatte), Elizabeth Seamans (Mrs. McFeely), Maggie Stewart (Mayor Maggie), Bob Trow (Bob Dog/ Robert Troll), Bill Barker (Dr. Bill and Elsie Jean Playtypus), Lenny Meledandri (Prince Tuesday) and Carole Muller Switala (Ana Platypus). The musicians were John Costa, Michael Moricz, Carl McVicker and Robert Rawsthorne.
