|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
The episode opens with Mister Rogers sitting on his porch playing with a feather he found on his way in.
Coming into the house, Mister Rogers finds a helium balloon inside his bench and several other balloons in the kitchen.
Picture Picture shows a short film about floating things before Mister Rogers pretends to be a leaf falling to the ground. Lady Aberlin stops by to take the balloons to the Neighborhood of Make-Believe. She has a plan to float a message to King Friday to encourage peace in the neighborhood. She practices her plan with Mister Rogers before Make-Believe begins.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, the war against change continues as Mr. Negri and Edgar Cooke stand guard. They are to "fire a shot" if any trouble comes about. Meanwhile, at the tree, Daniel Striped Tiger and X the Owl are talking about bringing peace to the Neighborhood when Lady Aberlin arrives with her balloons. Peaceful messages are successfully floated to the castle where King Friday declares an end to the war on change.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings Goodnight God before wrapping up for the week.
