Mister Rogers arrives with two orange balloons and sings Did You Know before Mr. McFeely stops by with a film about how people make balloons.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Neighbor Aber and Prince Tuesday visit Lady Elaine's special exhibit filled with balloons and dancers.

Prince Tuesday is happy until Lady Elaine mentions the possibility of King Friday and Queen Sara not coming back from their trip. Handyman Negri is cleaning outside the castle and talks with Prince Tuesday about his worries. At Neighbor Aber's suggestion, they call King Friday and Queen Sara on the phone to make the Prince feel better.

Meanwhile, X the Owl continues his lessons from the OCS about Native Americans, air, and water. He shares a moving picture of the ocean from his most recent lesson.

Back at the house, Marilyn Barnett stops by to demonstrate some exercises before Mister Rogers concludes by singing It's You I Like.
