Mister Rogers arrives with a collection of model cycles which he plays with on the floor. He describes the difference between a tricycle, a bicycle, and a unicycle. Picture Picture shows a film about people riding real cycles includeing a tandem cycle made for two people.

After the film, Mister Rogers sings Everybody's Fancy before Mr. McFeely stops by and describes how he rides his delivery bicycle. Mister Rogers is invited to "Miss Nelson and Bruce's dance studio" to see a musical computer.

At the dance studio, Mister Rogers visits with Bruce Haack who demonstrates a synthesizer which allows him to create various sounds. Miss Nelson arrives with a group of young dance students who spin as they sing a song about wheels. The children continue moving and singing to the various sounds of the synthesizer as they pretend to ride bicycles and pretend that they are cats.

Mr. McFeely finds Mister Rogers at the dance studio to tell him that there is a surprise for him back at the house. Upon returning to his house, Mister Rogers enters to find his cat, Blackberry, waiting for him inside.
