Mister Rogers arrives with an apple and a bottle of apple juice. As he waits for Mr. McFeely to arrive, he uses blocks to builds an apple juice factory. Mister Rogers spends some time thinking about children playing with trucks in a sandbox before Mr. McFeely delivers a video about how people make apple juice. After watching the video, Mister Rogers gives his apple to Mr. McFeely.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday is wearing a scarf over his head when Lady Aberlin arrives at the castle. Having been working for FFTW (Food For the World), Lady Aberlin is given a new assignment through CFTK (Crown For the King). King Friday suggests that Lady Aberlin start looking for his missing crown at the Museum-Go-Round.

On her way to the museum, Lady Aberlin talks with Corney who has recently built a Block Rocker -- a rocking chair made of building blocks. Curiously, the Block Rocker is missing.

At the Museum-Go-Round, Betty Okonak Templeton is helping to prepare the Found Objects Sharing Exhibit. Lady Elaine comes out with the Block Rocker in hand and claims that Corney has "shared" it with her. Lady Elaine gives an apple to Lady Aberlin and to Neighbor Aber who soon find that the apples have been taken from Daniel's clock. Together at the clock, Lady Aberlin and Neighbor Aber sing It's You I Like.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings It's You I Like before he goes outside where Marilyn Barnett introduces him to Todd Neufeld, a talented rhythm stick performer. After Mr. Neufeld demonstrates his talents, he and Marilyn Barnett participate in some exercises with Mister Rogers.


Rhythm sticks are more commonly referred to as "devil sticks."
