|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers has borrowed a grocer's scale from the Neighborhood grocery store and shows how to weigh produce. After weighing several pieces of fruit, he also weighs a glass of water and shows how it weighs more by adding more water.
Mr. McFeely stops by with a scale used in a doctor's office to weigh people. He and Mister Rogers each take a turn checking each other's weight and height. After Mr. McFeely leaves, Mister Rogers talks about other instruments used by a doctor and sings I Like To Be Told.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Nurse Miller is giving physical examinations and reports her the results to Dr. Frogg. Lady Elaine Fairchilde is a bit nervous about her check-up and hides from Nurse Miller. At the castle, an examination of Sara Saturday and King Friday XIII shows that they are both in good health despite having gained a bit of weight.
Using her boomerang, Lady Elaine turns the King upside down -- upsetting others because she, herself, is upset. Although it takes some convincing, Lady Elaine finally agrees to be weighed and measured as Nurse Miller sings I'm Taking Care of You. After the exam, Lady Elaine feels bad about turning the King upside down and temporarily does the same to herself.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings I'm Taking Care of You.
