|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a flashlight and changes into a protective jacket instead of his regular sweater. He explains that he will use the flashlight and a spray bottle to try and make a rainbow. Unfortunately, Mister Rogers is disappointed when his attempt fails.
Calling Mr. McFeely for assistance, Mister Rogers is further disappointed when he cannont come over right away. To deal with his frustrations, Mister Rogers sings What Do You Do and angrily draws a rainbow on a large pad of paper.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, the Draw the Neighborhood Contest is coming to and end as Lady Elaine is very confident her drawing on a boomerang will be chosen as the winner. Based on King Friday's previous hints, Lady Elaine believes that the surprise prize will be "all the gold in the world."
Meanwhile, Neighbor Aber has a special attachment for the plane car that is supposed to make it rain in the Neighborhood.
The final entries for the contest are delivered and Ana Platypus is announced as the winner. King Friday announces that the prize is a rainbow but Neighbor Aber's rain attachment did not work. Since anything is possibly in Make-Believe, however, Mr. Aber pretends a rainbow and the prize appears.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers shows a film about how gold is processed before Mr. McFeely and "Guard Aber" stop by with some samples of real gold. After looking at the gold, Mr. McFeely uses a projector and a prism he has brought with him to make a rainbow for Mister Rogers.
