Mister Rogers arrives with an old shirt which was given to him by a friend who was going to throw it away. Wearing it over his sweater, Mister Rogers goes to the sand table with some water and a cardboard tube. Wetting the sand, he makes some sand pyramids and attempts to connect them by using the tube as a bridge. Unfortunately, he has placed the pyramids too far apart and his attempts at making a bridge are unsuccessful. Mister Rogers then spends a moment thinking about children playing and building in soil.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Elaine places a cover of the Trolley to make it look like an automobile. Handyman Negri learns that Lady Elaine is trying to find ideas for new exhibits at the Museum-Go-Round when King Friday arrives. The King, who has "ideas about everything," suggests that she place his image on the roof of the Museum-Go-Round and call it a "King-Friday-Go-Round." Lady Elaine explains that she would like to do something with mud, brown paint, and automobiles. As she leaves, Handyman Negri mentions to King Friday that he thinks the Trolley might look different. Calling the Trolley, they find it still covered and looking like a car which gives King Friday the idea for an exhibit of covers and costumes.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers is invited by Mr. McFeely to a miniature golf course where Chuck Aber is the manager. Together, Mister Rogers and Mr. McFeely play a few holes including one with a castle.

Returning to the house, Mister Rogers talks about being a good sport before he sings It's You I Like.

Notes

  • In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, we learn that the Trolley can be called by placing your fingers in the form of a small T and calling "Trolley" three times. As Handyman Negri finds out, placing your hands in the form of a capital T does not work.
