|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with two boxes -- one empty and one full of buckeyes. While discussing the difference between empty and full, he shows how smooth a buckeye is after is is removed from its rough outer shell.
Moving to the kitchen, Mister Rogers fills an empty glass with water before sitting at the table and singing Just For Once. Mr. McFeely stops by on his way to the Neighbohrood of Make-Believe and Mister Rogers offers him a buckeye for each of his pockets.
In the Neighbohrood of Make-Believe, X the Owl has offered to let the Platypus family stay with him until they can dig a hole to live in. Officer Clemmons is helping move their belongings into the tree and is quickly running out of space. Nurse Miller arrives with Dr. Bill's medical supplies just in time to hear Officer Clemmons sing We Welcome You Today.
Taking the rest of the Platypus family's belongings to the pond where the Frogg family once lived, Officer Clemmons and Nurse Miller continue singing We Welcome You Today. Dr. Bill arrives at the pond where he discusses plans with Nurse Miller for a new "help station" in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings We Welcome You Today before emptying a full waste basket into an empty garbage can. Officer Clemmons stops by on his way from Make-Believe and enjoys some cake and milk with Mister Rogers. As he cleans up, Mister Rogers sings more of Just For Once.
