Mister Rogers arrives with a homemade "machine" that produces air and can keep a ping-pong ball hovering above its hose. After demonstrating the machine in the kitchen, he shares a collection of pictures featuring characters from the Neighborhood of Make-Believe. Comparing similar pictures, Mister Rogers sings Look and Listen.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Bob Dog unsuccessfully tries to use his breath to help Corney make a floating rocking chair. Called to the castle, Bob Dog is asked by Queen Sara to deliver a note to Henrietta Pussycat requesting her babysitting services. When Bob Dog realizes that Corney has perfected a floating rockit, he is distracted and is not able to deliver the note before Henrietta leaves for the weekend. Lady Aberlin agrees to babysit while King Friday and Queen Sara are gone for the evening.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings It's a Lonely Kind of Thing as he talks about how a person may feel lonley when they think they have made another person angry. Mr. McFeely passes by having forgotten to bring the dog he had told Mister Rogers he would share. Mr. McFeely delivers a message to Mister Rogers and promises to bring a dog by next week.

Mister Rogers concludes by trying the blower machine once more as he sings It's Such a Good Feeling.

Notes

  • As Corney and Bog Dog attempt to make the small rockit float, Corney accidentally drops the chair to the bottom of his factory.
  • The message delivered by Mr. McFeely was from the owner of the blower machine requesting its return that evening.
  • Mister Rogers mentions that he feels good about the talk he had with Mr. McFeely. In doing so, he nearly refers to Mr. McFeely as "Mr. Newell" (Mr. McFeely is played by David Newell): "That was a good talk Mr. N....McFeely and I had."
