Mister Rogers arrives with a used piece of green wrapping paper which he takes to the kitchen. Taking out some crayons, he uses the paper to make a textured rubbing as he explains that leftover things can be used for many other things.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, the MGR-TV Flea Market Auction is underway as Miss Paulificate arrives with her group of volunteers. Chef Brockett explains that unwanted items will be offered up for others to call in and purchase. Everyone sings Someone Can Use It before Lady Elaine lists off a variety of the items available at the flea market. As she names some, Lady Aberlin writes the items on the "Quicky" board. While King Friday has contributed one extra sunrise and one extra sunset, Grandpere has provided 400 extra French fry containers which Chef Brockett quickly claims for use as drinking cups. Mr. McFeely is interested in the sunrise and sunset: "I have a lot of deliveries to make and I can always use an early sunrise and a late sunset." Mr. McFeely contributes a bicycle tire, X the Owl offers a "whole line of K's", and Lady Elaine is ready to part with her sign for "Fairchilde's Real Italian Pizza." Bob Dog takes the sign to use as a cape.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers visits Betty's Little Theater where Ella Jenkins is singing and Susan Linn is playing with her puppets.

Notes

  • Lady Elaine rhymes her way through some of the flea market inventory: "Pencils and pop. Tables and tops. Rubies and race cars and rattles. Tires and trees. A cage to catch fleas. Acorns and apples and barrels...Bread baskets, balls, balloons and bananas. Beads and batons and pajamas. Snowflakes and shoelaces. Hats for your head. Kettles and kerchiefs. Umbrellas."
  • Bob Dog attempts to hang the "line of K's" by a string as the item is announced, however, the line falls as soon as he lets go. The scene continues nonetheless as Bob Dog and Lady Aberlin re-string the K's.
  • One of the auction volunteers brought in by Miss Paulificate is Michael Douglas -- better known today as Michael Keaton.

  • Although Mister Rogers visits Betty's Little Theater, Betty Aberlin does not make an appearance other than her small role in this episode's Neighborhood of Make-Believe segment.
