Mister Rogers arrives with a rain coat and mentions there had been some fog outside. After explaining that fog is like a cloud that is close to the ground, he shares a film about a foggy day. He mentions that he has always been curious about many topics and sings I'm Interested in Things.

The fog has lifted and Mister Rogers visits Bob Trow's workshop where Mr. Trow has been working on a tandem bicycle. After he fills the tires with air, Mr. Trow remembers a time that he was joined for a tandem bike ride by Audrey from Audrey Cleans Everything. Mister Rogers then watches as Mr. Trow puts on a variety of hats and pretends that he is in an old-fashioned silent movie. He returns to his house where the fog is starting to roll back in.

It is a foggy day in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe and Bob Dog, riding a bicycle, crashes into the tree. On his way to take a special stone from the Museum-Go-Round to King Friday, Bob Dog becomes upset when he finds that he has lost the stone in the fog. Miss Paulificate is startled when she runs into Bob Dog in the thick fog. Lady Elaine uses her boomerang to lift the fog and Lady Aberlin is able to help Bob Dog find the stone.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers explains that magic is not real and cannot make things happen. A phone call informs Mister Rogers that Astronaut Al Worden will be visiting on Wednesday.


At Bob Trow's workshop, Mister Rogers sees the tandem bicycle and says to Mr. Trow, "You certainly learned to ride quickly...and now you have yourself a bike with two seats on it." This is in reference to Episode 1200 when Bob Trow learned to ride a bicycle.

Twice in Make-Believe, King Friday calls Bob Dog to the castle. Both times, his voice is heard but he is not seen on camera.

As Mister Rogers talks about magic, Wishes Don't Make Things Come True plays in the background.
