Mister Rogers arrives with a basektball which he takes outside where a basketball goal is set up. After tossing the ball through the hoop a few times, Mister Rogers notices that the goal is not very high. Retrieving a yardstick from inside, he measures the goal to find that it is roughly six feet high. Taking a chair from his porch, Mister Rogers shoots the ball from a sitting position.

Waiting for Marilyn Barnett to stop by for a visit, Mister Rogers sings Let's Think of Something to Do While We're Waiting.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin is using the royal yardstick as she tries to find where the underground tunnel may be located. Cousin Stephen Owl is looking for the tunnel as well by bouncing a basketball to see where the sound of the bounce on the ground might change.

At the Museum-Go-Round, Lady Elaine is introduced to Cousin Stephen as Cousin Mary comes out from the museum's map room where she has found a scrap of old paper. The paper reads: "Once upon a time, there was a secret tunnel in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, but…" The search for the tunnel continues with everyone more curious now than ever before!

Back at the house, Marilyn Barnett arrives for some exercises. Mister Rogers asks about specific exercises for basketball players and Ms. Barnett demonstrates some that she does with her wheelchair athletes. Visiting a nearby gymnasium, Mister Rogers is introduced to the members of a wheelchair basketball team who are practicing. The team members talk about the unique qualities of wheelchair basketball and demonstrate their skills for Mister Rogers.

Returning to the house, Mister Rogers concludes by singing It's You I Like.
