|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with small metal hoop which he compares to other round objects. Mr. McFeely stops by with a delivery of various balls. Mister Rogers finds that some only one basketball will fit in the hoop but several tennis balls and marbles will fit. Happy to have discovered something new, he sings Just for Once.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Henrietta Pussycat and X the Owl are disappointed to find that Mr. McFeely does not have a delivery for either of them. Instead, he has two letters for Lady Elaine Fairchilde. Before receiving her letters, Lady Elaine uses her new device to share a Funny Fast Film of Mr. McFeely making a delivery. When Chef Brockett arrives, he is also presented with a Funny Fast Film of himself making a cake.
When Lady Elaine finally opens her letters, she find that they are from the National Boomerang Commission inviting her to the first annual boomerang contest to be held at Someplace Else. Lady Elaine is confident that she will win the competition but the second letter informs her that she will have to bring a partner. When Chef Brockett offers to go with her, Lady Elaine teaches him to throw a boomerang.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers pretends to throw a boomerang before cleaning up the kitchen.
