Mister Rogers arrives with a soft toy kangaroo and talks about the behaviors of real kangaroos. Picture Picture shares a film about kangaroos before Mister Rogers mentions that Captain Kangaroo will be visiting the Neighborhood today. While he waits for Captain Kangaroo, Mister Rogers sings Look and Listen.

Captain Kangaroo stops by and talks about how he got his name -- a result of his many pockets full of interesting items. At Captain Kangaroo's request, Mister Rogers shows him the Neighborhood Trolley and how it works.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Donkey Hodie is at Someplace Else planting carrot seets in hopes of having a special treat for Bunny Rabbit and Captain Kangaroo.

Meanwhile, at the Museum-Go-Round, Bunny Rabbit and Captain Kangaroo are welcomed by Lady Elaine Fairchilde who provides very unclear directions to Someplace Else. As they try to find their way, Captain Kangaroo and Bunny Rabbit are taken to the castle by Lady Aberlin where they receive a medal from King Friday.

Donkey Hodie is thrilled to see the visitors but unfortunately his carrots are not growing. While he seeks help at the castle, Lady Elaine buries some fully grown carrots which helps Donkey Hodie feel good about his effort to do something nice for his friends.

Back at the house, Captain Kangaroo departs and Mister Rogers concludes for the day by showing some carrot seeds and talking about how things grow.


Captain Kangaroo has to leave because Mr. Green Jeans has prepared a dinner for him back at the Treasure House.
