After changing into his sneakers, Mister Rogers stands and steps up to the door and then back down again. He raises his arms and eyebrows to demonstrate "up and down", as well.

Sitting on the floor, Mister Rogers shows a toy parking garage that he brought with him. Placing a toy car on the garage's elevator, Mister Rogers raises it to the top and then back down again.

Mister Rogers sings Let's Think of Something To Do as he waits for Mr. McFeely to stop by. When he arrives, Mr. McFeely takes Mister Rogers a shopping mall where they go up and down an escalator and a glass elevator.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Handyman Negri is playing music for Mimus Polyglottos and Torglodytes Aedon as they dance when he is called to the factory where Corney asks for his help. Using a new pulley system, Handyman Negri removes a Rockit from the factory's display case. Corney sings I'm a Man Who Manufactures before he promises to make something special for Handyman Negri to thank him for his help.

Meanwhile, Mr. McFeely is struggling with a heavy package from the Up and Down Company to be delivered to Lady Elaine Fairchilde. Handyman Negri helps Mr. McFeely deliver the package to the museum where Lady Elaine allows them to open the package. Inside they find a hydraulic lift platform which they demonstrate by lifting each other up and down. X the Owl is somewhat curious about the lift and mentions that he doesn't need such a device to go up and down -- he is able to fly up and down naturally.

Returning to the factory, Corney presents Handyman Negri with a custom-made rocking guitar holder.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers suggests that fancy things are not needed to go up and down -- just ideas and an imagination. He concludes for the day by singing It's You I Like.
