Next Episode: 1034

Mister Rogers arrives with a part for a cotton candy maker which he takes to the kitchen where the rest of the machine is waiting. Sitting at the table, he sings I'd Like to Be Just Like Mom and Dad as he shares a film about children spending time with their parents. Chef Brockett stops by and makes some cotton candy with Mister Rogers. He plans to take some to the carnival in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Robert Troll is at the castle with Queen Sara and Edgar Cooke who are planning to make caramel apples for the carnival. When Chef Brockett brings some cotton candy to King Friday, he is required to first make an appointment. King Friday is disinterested in the cotton candy and the carnival as he has more important matters at hand.

Meanwhile, Lady Elaine Fairchilde has a crystal ball at the Museum-Go-Round which she is planning to use in the carnival. Robert Troll stops by with candy apples which X the Owl is happy to try. When his beak sticks to the caramel, Robert Troll struggles to pull X free.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about Robert Troll's dialect and other fun gibberish as he sings Troll Talk. He clarifies that troll talk is different than speaking in foreign languages such as the way Grandpere speaks French.


Upon Chef Brockett's arrival, I'm a Chef plays in the background.

Rather than leave the castle to make an appointment to see King Friday, Chef Brockett is allowed to use the telecan extension line at the castle.

The crystal ball is on loan to Lady Elaine from the Wizard of Lupovich.
