Mister Rogers arrives with three balls and a film but does not get the opportunity to show any of them before Mr. McFeely arrives with a film about tadpoles. After the film, Mister Rogers shows the three balls which he has been trying to juggle. He shows a film loaned to him by Francois Clemmons of Dr. Don Rapp juggling.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Bob Dog and Francois Clemmons are playing fetch with a ball when Lady Elaine joins in for a moment.

At the castle, the Frogg family and H.J. Elephant arrive from Westwood as Francois Clemmons sings We Welcome You Today. Mrs. Frogg has a blanket for Prince Tuesday which she has been knitting. Having wished for the Froggs to visit, Prince Tuesday is somewhat frightened to see his wishes come true and hurries away.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers visits Francois Clemmons' studio where he meets Don Rapp who demonstrates his juggling talents.

Returning to the house, Mister Rogers sings You've Got To Do It.
