Mister Rogers arrives with a kite which he assembles and takes outside to fly. Unfortunately, there is not enough wind to keep the kite in the air. Clearly disappointed, he goes back inside where Picture Picture shows a film of him flying a kite on the beach. After telling a story of once losing a kite in a tree, Mister Rogers sings What Do You Do With the Mad That You Feel.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Handyman Negri and Digger Digorum are helping to dig at the Platypus mound when they uncover a box containing a kite. As everyone continues working, they realize they have found a magic kite when it begins flying by itself. Henrietta Pussycat stops by the mound with some new duckbill curtains for the Platypus home.

Back at the house, the wind has picked up and Mr. McFeely stops by to help Mister Rogers fly his kite. The strong wind causes the kite to break but Mr. McFeely offers to help fix it with tape.
