Dorothy introduces a song with a story about a handsome prince. Sam arrives and greets Dorothy. Dorothy briefs everyone about the story. The prince meets a lady with a black velvet band. Then the princess has gone missing, but the prince goes to find her. Now for the detailed story.
- Song: Black Velvet Band
Captain Feathersword narrates the story. Sam sings the main verses with each of the characters in the story singing a verse as well. Anthony is the butcher. Fernando is the bicycle maker. Caterina is the florist. When the prince reaches the princess (played by Carolyn Ferrie, the voice of Dorothy the Dinosaur), he serenades her. They then proceed to dance and the princess even sings a verse.
Wags greets us and shows how he's wearing a painting smock and painting beret and has his paint palette and paint brush, so Let's Paint! He's sits down to his painting on an easel when Dorothy arrives and wants to look at his painting. He says OK, but that it's not very good. Dorothy wants him to talk about what he's painting. Wags says he likes painting and wearing his smock and beret. He enjoys mixing paint on his palette and putting the paint on the paper. Wags sighs so Dorothy asks what's wrong. Wags explains that his paintings never look like he wants them to look, like the horse, tree and dragon currently on his painting. Dorothy consoles him by explaining that a painting doesn't have to look like anything; many famous painters just use the paint to show colours and shapes, which Wags is already doing. She thinks his painting is really nice to look at. Wags realizes that he can be an artist after all and Dorothy encourages him to keep painting. Hooray!
