|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a playpen and a blanket which he sets up for a puppy he has waiting on the porch. After mentioning that the dog may not like the playpen, Mister Rogers sings a song about fences.
As the puppy rests, Mr. McFeely arrives with a delivery from King Friday who has sent a punch clock for Mister Rogers to demonstrate. After trying it out, Mister Rogers opens up the clock to look at its inside.
Using the tin can phone to call King Friday, Mister Rogers learns that the punch clock is intended to be used. King Friday is requesting that all people who come and go must use the punch clock.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, punch clocks have been installed everywhere as King Friday's orders to check in and out include those in there as well. Handyman Negri is installing a punch clock at Daniel's clock as Mr. McFeely delivers another clock to be installed at the Eiffel Tower.
At the castle, Edgar Cooke continues his duties as a border guard while Handyman Negri visits Grandpere to install the punch clock at the Tower. Confused by the term, Grandpere literally punches the clock.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers is visited by Carol Saunders and three young friends. Sitting together around the kitchen table, they sing some traditional chidrens' songs: Where is Thumbkin and Fly Through My Window. As everyone leaves, they punch the punch clock.
