Mister Rogers arrives with a kit for assembling a toy panda after his nephew had asked for a panda to hold. As he stuffs the panda, he sings I Like To Take My Time.

At Elsie Neal's Craft Shop, Mister Rogers meets Bill Strickland -- a potter who demonstrates how a clay pot is made using a potter's wheel. When he leaves, Mister Roges is given some clay by Elsie Neal.

Returning to the house, Mister Rogers finishes the panda toy and decides to give the clay to his nephew, as well.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Bob Dog has found something hiding in the Trolley tunnel. Lady Aberlin is able to kindly coax Purple Panda from the tunnel. He asks to be taken to Lady Elaine Fairchilde who he met when she discovered Planet Purple. Purple Panda informs everyone that Paul and Pauline Purple will be visiting the Neighborhood of Make-Believe.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers shares a film about pandas.

Notes

  • Mister Rogers accidentally drops his jacket on the floor when he tries to hang it in the closet.
  • As he stuffs the panda toy, Mister Rogers sings a slight variation to I Like To Take My Time: "...to eat, to get dressed, to go to sleep at night. To make a panda, toy for my nephew boy..."
  • Bob Trow stops by Elsie Neal's Craft Shop while Bill Strickland is making a pot; however, the reason for his visit is never explained.
