Mister Rogers arrives with baskets of various sizes as well as a book showing pictures of many other kinds of baskets. At Bob Trow's workshop, Mister Rogers meets Walter Brown -- a master basket maker. Mr. Brown demonstrates his basket weaving skills before Mr. Trow shows a film about the basket making process.

Returning to the house, Mister Rogers explains that people have been making baskets for a long time.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin talks with X the Owl and Henrietta Pussycat about their recent picnic and shares with them the news of King Friday's upcoming birthday.

At the Museum-Go-Round, Digger Digorum stops by with an old basket that she is taking to a museum. At the mention of King Friday's birthday, Lady Elaine suggests that she has decided not to give the King a gift. King Friday calls Digger Digorum to the castle where she is to meet him in the D Room.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about some reasons why Lady Elaine may have decided against giving King Friday a birthday present. Going to the kitchen, Mister Rogers show how to make a basket using construction paper and tape.




  • Lady Aberlin stops briefly to talk with the Trolley on and mentions that she is on her way to see X and Henrietta. In response, knowing what Lady Aberlin will be sharing with them, the Trolley makes the sound of the Happy Birthday tune.
  • Although King Friday's voice is heard calling Digger Digorum to the castle, he does not visibly appear in this episode.
