Mister Rogers arrives with a balloon and a paper plate which he takes to the kitchen. Cutting the edge from the plate, he attaches the balloon to what is left. Along with the outer ring which he has just removed, Mister Rogers has created a ring-toss game.

Marilyn Barnett stops by for some stretching exercises and Mister Rogers gives her the ring-toss game. Back in the kitchen, he uses another paper plate to make a pretend merry-go-round and sings a very simple song as it spins on top of the Museum-Go-Round model.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Queen Sara and Neighbor Aber are discussing the unknown whereabouts of Lady Elaine Fairchilde. As Queen Sara heads off to check the castle, Prince Tuesday mentions that the Fortune Cookie Man is also missing.

At the tree, X the Owl offers Neighbor Aber a balloon on which they write Henrietta's name. When they let they let go of the balloon, it stops outside Henrietta's door. Hoping to use these "finder balloons" in the search for the missing Neighbors, Neighbor Aber takes two more from X and goes to the Museum-Go-Round.

At the museum, Betty Okonak Templeton blows up the balloons and Neighbor Aber writes one name on each balloon -- " "F.C. Man" and "Lady E." As he lets go, the Fortune Cookie Man balloon stops near the Museum-Go-Round and the Lady Elaine balloon continues to move.

Back at the house, Mr. McFeely stops by with a videotape about how people make merry-go-round horses.
