Mister Rogers arrives with a ball puzzle on loan from Bob Trow. Taking the puzzle to the kitchen, he takes the puzzle apart and then puts it back together before singing I Need You.

At Bob Trow's workshop, Mister Rogers and Mr. Trow play a game with numbered cards and a lighted board showing the numbers 1 through 4. When a button is pressed, the number lights up and a buzzer sounds a specific number of times.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Bob Dog has found Lady Elaine Fairchilde's boomerang. After he shows it to Cornflake S. Pecially, Corney sings I'm a Man Who Manufactures before Lady Elaine arrives at the factory. After rudely doing so, Lady Elaine is encouraged to ask Bob Dog nicely for the return of her boomerang.

At Someplace Else, the boomerang contest is about to begin as everyone is practicing their throws. Lady Elaine wins first place in the fast throw competition before Barbara Boomerang crowns herself queen of the contest. At first, Lady Elaine is angry that she is not queen but is eventually content with being number one in the contest.

Back at Bob Trow's shop, he and Mister Rogers play a game where they creative rhymes with the various numbers on the cards.

Returning to his house, Mister Rogers borrows the number cards and continues playing the rhyming game before he concludes by singing I Need You.

Notes

  • Since they are both played by Bob Trow, it is quite uncommon for both Bob Dog and Robert Troll to appear in the same episode as they do in this one.
