King Friday XIII is visiting from the Neighborhood of Make-Believe. While Grampy Hodie leaves to pick up his "Where's My Crown" board game, he asks to Donkey Hodie and Purple Panda to entertain his guest. "Lady Hodie" and "Sir Panda" prepare to be royal hosts to King Friday but feel pressure to be fancy and kingly in King Friday's presence.

Donkey and Panda make a royal throne for King Friday but it's much too high with so many pillows. Checking a history book to find out more about kings, Donkey and Panda try throwing rose petals and writing with a quill, but King Friday seems unimpressed.

It turns out that King Friday himself has been nervous all day thinking about a new game he'd like to play with Grampy Hodie. Recognizing that King Friday has been similar feelings as those they've been feeling, Donkey Hodie and Purple Panda teach King Friday to play Spinaroony Tag. When Grampy Hodie returns with the board game, King Friday has the courage to suggest his own game -- crowny ball!
