Mister Rogers arrives with game he borrowed from Elsie Neal's craft shop -- "Paste the Star on the Donkey." He demonstrates the game which is a variation on the traditional Pin the Tail on the Donkey. Suggesting that the donkey does not need stars to be fancy, Mister Rogers sings Everybody's Fancy.

At Elsie Neal's craft shop, Audrey Roth demonstrates a stitching game that she created with Chef Brockett. Elsie Neal shows Mister Rogers several other toys and games that are available in her shop.

Returning to the house, Mister Rogers is disappointed to find a note from Mr. McFeely who had stopped by with a live donkey to show him. Inside, he looks at a book that describes a donkey.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Chef Brockett samples Grandpere's pommes frites. The French-fried potatoes are so good that Grandpere suggests Donkey Hodie receive a prize for growing the best potatoes. Miss Paulificate thinks a star would be the perfect prize.

Back at the house, Mr. McFeely returns with the live donkey.


Everybody's Fancy plays in the background as the episode moves to Elsie Neal's craft shop.

Elsie Neal suggests that the donkey game was made by David Smith -- Assistant Art Director for Mister Rogers' Neighborhood.

Mister Rogers purchases Audrey's game for 98 cents.
