Mister Rogers arrives with a set of leg braces and a pair of crutches. He tries on the braces and demonstrates the crutches explaining that people sometimes need them to help them walk. Mr. McFeely stops by with a film about wheelchair basketball.

Visiting the McFeelys' house, Mister Rogers meets their granddaughter, Chrissy Thompson. Chrissy, who uses crutches and leg braces to help her walk, is making a book with her grandmother. As they work, they sing You Are Special.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Handyman Negri measures the Trolley and tracks for Mr. McFeely who is making a speedy delivery to Someplace Else. At Someplace Else, the potato farm's business is booming and the final part arrives for a new invention to help productivity -- the washer-dryer-sorter-dumper. The measurements were taken to make sure there was enough room on the tracks for the transport of potatoes from Someplace Else.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about ideas and inventions before singing I'm Proud of You.
