|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a towel which he uses to play peek-a-boo before a quick game of hide-and-seek with viewers. After talking about a time when he was young and playing hide-and-seek, Mister Rogers sings Please Don't Think It's Funny. Returning to the towel he brough with him, Mister Rogers shows a film about how people make towels.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin and Prince Tuesday are drying off after a swim as King Friday is visited by a representative of the Strothers Racing Towel Company. Mr. Strothers demonstrates his racing towels and informs the King that the Neighborhood of Make-Believe has been chosen as the site for the Make-Believe Olympic Games. Lady Aberlin excorts Mr. Strothers around the Neighborhood as he asks for everyone's permission to host the games. Everyone quickly gives their permission except Lady Elaine Fairchilde who will only give her permission if she is guaranteed to win the games.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers pretends that his towels are racing towels before he talks about being a graceful loser: "Being the best loser takes talent just as being the best winner does." Mister Rogers concludes for the day by singing It's You I Like.
