Mister Rogers arrives with a pencil sharpener which he takes to the kitchen to demonstrate. Taking the cover off the sharpener, he explains how it operates to create a point on a pencil.

At Bob Trow's workshop, Mister Rogers watches as Mr. Trow demonstrates a pulley and a block and tackle mechanism. After Mister Rogers remembers working with his father, Bob Trow uses the pencil sharpener to make a small winch. Finally, Mr. Trow explains how sandpaper is used to make rough wood smooth.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Elaine Fairchilde continues her unsuccessful attempt to sell maps of the mixed-up Neighborhood. Handyman Negri takes a winch to the castle where he and Lady Aberlin carry out King Friday's plan to help the others find their their way to the castle. With sandpaper ribbon attached to the winch at the castle, Lady Aberlin is asked to connect it to each house in the Neighborhood. Meanwhile, Pilot Ito is flying over the Neighborhood to observe the changes. Edgar Cooke returns from his shopping in Westwood and uses the ribbon to find his way to the castle.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings Look and Listen.


Mr. McFeely, Joey Hollingsworth, and Miss Paulificate appear in a flashback as King Friday recounts the events that led to the mixed-up Neighborhood of Make-Believe. Because these "appearances" were just clips from a previous episode, Mr. Hollingsworth, David Newell, and Audrey Roth are not listed in this episode's credits.
