Mister Rogers arrives with a horse sculpted by Leonard Streckfus out of random found objects. After looking closely at the horse, Mister Rogers sings Look and Listen before visiting the workshop of Mr. Streckfus where he sees many other sculptures.

Returning to his house, Mister Rogers uses random object from his kitchen to make a horse sculpture of his own.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Prince Tuesday is dressed in a lion costume and startles Mayor Maggie who is looking for King Friday's missing crown. Prince Tuesday explains that he is wearing the lion costume to help me feel more brave and sings a song about looking for his father's crown.

Neighbor Aber arrives to report that the sign pointing towards Westwood is missing as well. At the Museum-Go-Round, they find the Westwood sign which Lady Elaine is holding for an exhibit featuring found objects -- objects she has taken from others without asking. She refuses to say whether she knows anything about King Friday's crown and tells everyone to come to her upcoming "found object sharing exhibit."

Back at the television house, Mr. McFeely delivers a copy of Loving by Ann Morris which Mister Rogers shares before singing Many Ways to Say I Love You.
