While he waits on Mr. McFeely to come by with something important, Mister Rogers sings What Do You Think Is Important. Mr. McFeely arrives with a film about how people make bicycle helmets.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Miss Paulificate helps King Friday try on his crown cover which has the word "Generosity" printed across the front. As King Friday states in his kingly way, "It has 'generosity' printed on it as a subtle welcome to Sir Thomas."

Lady Aberlin comes to the castle and sings Troglodytes Aedon to the royal birds before she tries to plead the case of Prince Tuesday to the King. Thomas T. Tune arrives and surprises everyone with his kind nature and his tall stature.

Notes

  • The part of Thomas T. Tune is played by Tommy Tune, a well-known choreographer. According to the Wikipedia entry on Tommy Tune, his height, which caught the Neighborhood of Make-Believe a bit off guard, is measured at approximately 6' 6".
  • The broadcast is apparently running short on time as Mister Rogers seemingly moves into Good Feeling more quickly than usual and the credits seem to run at a faster pace.
  • Images from this episode appear in the Taking Good Care of You pamphlet Wearing a Bicylcle Helmet.
  • Purchase this episode on DVD or digital download.
