|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a towel and a pair of swim trunks and makes good on his promise from the previous day to show viewers where he swims. He talks about how he made a promise to himself to swim a certain length every day and has done so almost every day for ten years. Mister Rogers then shows film footage of his daily swimming. Following the film, Mister Rogers talks about how he doesn't always feel like swimming but he does it anyway because he made a promise to himself to do so.
Chef Brockett stops by with an oatmeal-raisin-nut cookie for Mister Rogers to try. He also delivers a clarinet from Negri's Music Shop which Mister Rogers takes to the kitchen to demonstrate. As he assembles the clarinet, Mister Rogers talks about how he wanted to learn to play the clarinet as a child but he never practiced. He then sings You've Got To Do It before playing a few notes on the clarinet.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin is sent to get a King Friday doll from Corney and discovers that the doll boxes are empty. She is called to the Museum-Go-Round where Lady Elaine shows her that she has altered the King Friday dolls to look like Lady Elaine dolls. Upon finding out about Lady Elaine's actions, King Friday summons the Chief of Discipline who he puts in charge of a punishment for Lady Elaine.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about why parents tell children not to do certain things. He then shows viewers how to make a pretend clarinet out of a paper roll and sings What Do You Do With the Mad That You Feel.
