Mister Rogers arrives with a model van and a model wheel chair to demonstrate how a wheelchair lift works. Before he visits some friends with a real wheelchair lift, Mister Rogers sings Let's Be Together.

Returning to the house, Mister Rogers shows a few puppets and sings a song with Grandpere before having some make-believe.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday XIII commands Mayor Maggie, who had arrived in a wheelchair, to visit Dr. Bill Platypus for a clean bill of health. Meanwhile, Neighbor Aber gets a chance to try out Mayor Maggie's wheelchair before they both are cleared by Dr. Bill as being in good health.

Back at the house, Mr. McFeely stops by with a copy of Look Look Look by Tana Hoban.


The scene with the real wheelchair lift was filmed at (or at least in close association with) Keystone Coach Works in Bethel Park, PA.
