Mister Rogers arrives with a package he was given by Chef Brockett. He opens the box to find only a note from Chef Brockett: "I will be over today to fill this up."

After pouring himself a glass of milk, Mister Rogers sings I'd Like To Be Just Like Mom and Dad. Still curious about what Chef Brockett will be bringing, Mister Rogers asks Picture Picture for help. Picture Picture responds with a long list of ingredients.

Mr. McFeely stops by with a message from Chef Brockett and charges a fee of "three" for the delivery.

Seconds later, Chef Brockett himself arrives and he and Mister Rogers work silently together as they make a cake for King Friday.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday has taken some security precautions including Lady Aberlin serving as a border guard. Cornflake S. Pecially chooses not to bother with all of the information he must provide in order to visit the castle so he decides to stay home. Feeling frustrated with King Friday's new regulations, Lady Aberlin sings It's an Ugly Day.

Chef Brockett arrives with the cake and King Friday asks that the cake be cut up to check for messages of change or poisonous materials.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers finds Jello and a spoon which Chef Brockett had left for him. Mister Rogers writes Chef Brockett a thank you note before he leaves.

Notes

  • Exercising her duties as border guard, Lady Aberlin takes the following information from Chef Brockett in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe: Full Name: Richard Donald Brockett; Rank: Mater Chef; Serial Number: 1,234,567.
  • Just before Lady Aberlin sings It's an Ugly Day, Fred Rogers can be seen moving behind the Neighborhood wall just to the left of Corney's factory.
  • In the early episodes, Picture Picture was not just a screen to show films on but rather a "magic mirror" type component of the house. As Mister Rogers consults Picture Picture about what Chef Brockett will have with him, he asks, "Picture Picture on the wall. Would you kindly show us all? What Chef Brockett's going to fill that box up with."
  • Purchase this episode on DVD or digital download.
