Mister Rogers arrives with a bean plant in a small pot which he takes to the back yard where he transplants it into a larger pot. He recalls his days as a boy when he'd fill hit toy trucks with dirt and thinks about real earth moving equipment.

Mr. McFeely stops by to show Mister Rogers his new Speedy Delivery uniform which features a larger patch and buttons with the letter 'M.' After spending a few minutes talking on the porch about hand-me-down clothing, Mister Rogers and Mr. McFeely visit Francois Clemmons' studio where Yoshi Ito is singing.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Mr. McFeely has a deliver from Collette -- a photograph and a box of bonbons for Grandpere and some clothing for Henrietta Pussycat. When Henrietta finds that the hat she received is too big, she becomes upset to know that her new clothing is Collette's old clothing. Yoshi Ito helps her to understand that she can be proud of the clothing that is new to her -- sent from France especially for her.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about clothing -- but what's inside the clothing is what is most important. He concludes by singing It's You I Like.


According to Mister Rogers, the bean plant he arrives with came from the vegetables he shared "a couple of months ago" with Bob Trow in Episode 1225.

At Francois Clemmons' studio, Yoshi Ito sings Ch'n Ch'n which is featured on the Come On and Wake Up LP.
