Mister Rogers arrives with a collection of wallpaper samples and a roll of wallpaper belonging to the McFeelys. Showing the various patters, he explains that different people like different things and sings You Are You.

At the McFeelys' house, Mister Rogers lends a hand as Bob Trow helps Mr. McFeely wallpaper the kitchen. Chef Brockett stops by to share some refreshments he has prepared. As they enjoy the grape juice and cookies, Bob Trow bumps the arm of Chef Brockett which causes his juice to splatter the new wallpaper. Chef Brockett uses a sponge to clean up the juice.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Mrs. McFeely delivers some wallpaper scraps to Lady Elaine Fairchilde. Learning of the changes to the McFeelys' kitchen, Lady Elaine decides she would like to make some changes to the Neighborhood of Make-Believe. Using her boomerang, she rearranges the locations throughout the Neighborhood -- even adding colorful wallpaper to the castle. King Friday XIII orders Lady Elaine to return the Neighborhood to its normal arrangement but she refuses.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about how sudden changes can be difficult to accept. Chef Brockett stops by with an empty ice cream container which Mister Rogers plans to use as a waste basket.


In a somewhat rare example of events in the real Neighborhood crossing over to the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Mrs. McFeely tells Lady Elaine Fairchilde that they are wallpapering their kitchen.

I'm a Chef plays as Chef Brockett arrives at Mister Rogers' house.
