Mister Rogers arrives with a blanket which he has just picked up from the cleaners. Unfolding the sofa bed and using the blanket to cover it, Mister Rogers sits and talks about the feelings children have about blankets and teddy bears. He then sings Please Don't Think It's Funny and shows a film about how people make blankets.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Neighbor Aber gives the Trolley a free sample of the C.A. Blanket Company's trolley blankets. X the Owl jumps at the chance to go into business with Neighbor Aber.

Meanwhile, Lady Elaine has done a superb job in organizing Corney's factory and convincing him to manufacture only rocking chairs. Mr. McFeely delivers a plaque for Corney from the BBBB (Better Buy Business Bureau) congratulating Corney on establishing better business practices.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings Sometimes People are Good and relaxes on the sofa bed. After a discussion about why children are sometimes punished Mister Rogers concludes in the kitchen by demonstrating a player clarinet.


As Lady Elaine discusses the changes she has made to Corney's factory, she suggests that in the future "anyone who makes a mistake will get a spanking." I had to laugh at the thought of this punishment being used in the real working world!
