Mister Rogers arrives with three cardboard tubes. After singing We Would Like to Welcome
, he takes out a toy car which he rolls through the tubes. In the kitchen, Mister Rogers uses the smallest tube as a tunnel for the model Trolley.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin's work as Director of Research continues with Handyman Negri's delivery of official scrolls documenting the names of all Neighborhood royalty. Playing the laughing box for Handyman Negri, Lady Aberlin attracts Robert Troll who thinks that there is someone inside the box. Taking note of Princess Zelda's name on one of the scrolls, Handyman Negri decides to contact her as Lady Aberlin heads to the factory.

At the factory, Hilda Dingleboarder is not as interested in the laughter coming from the laughing box as she is in the structure of the box itself.

Moving on to the clock, Lady Aberlin find that Robert Troll has told Daniel about the laughing box and his belief that someone is inside. To put Daniel's mind at ease, Lady Aberlin assures him that the laughing box is just a machine. To be sure, Lady Aberlin agrees to ask Handyman Negri to open the box so they can look inside.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers takes out a toy which plays the sounds of various animals. Outside, Mr. McFeely arrives with his friend from the library, Dr. Kimmel. Dr. Kimmel shares a story called "Button Broth," a story about soup made from a button.


A promotional kit provided in connection with this week of episodes included a Mister Rogers' Neighborhood toothbrush.
