Mister Rogers arrives with a collection of posters -- two of which represent a his songs Sometimes People Are Good and I Did Too. He looks at the many details in the posters and sings both songs. A third poster was created by Morrie Turner -- Mister Rogers' friend who draws the Wee Pals comic strip and Kid Power television program.

At Francois Clemmons' studio, Mr. Turner is visiting and drawing a caricature of Mr. Clemmons. He also shows caricatures of Mr. and Mrs. McFeely, Chef Brockett, Robert Troll, Elsie Neal, Audrey Roth, Handyman Negri, and Mister Rogers. Mr. Turner talks about how he comes up with ideas for his drawings and explains how a cartoon is created.

Back at his house, Mister Rogers shows a film of Mr. Turner's animated characters from Kid Power.

After Mister Rogers makes up a story of his own and draws simple pictures to go with it, Mr. McFeely stops by with the exciting news that his granddaughter is coming to visit.


The "Sometimes People Are Good" poster was included with the record Mister Rogers Sings For Those Times When You Feel You Did Something Wrong. It was created by Alice and Martin Robinson.

The "I Did Too" poster was included with the record Mister Rogers Sings For Those Times When A Grown-Up is Proud of You. It was created by Margaret Zimak.
