Mister Rogers arrives with a St. Bernard named Rondo. Mr. McFeely had been walking the dog and Mister Rogers asked to borrow him to show to his television friends. After playing with Rondo for a few moments, he returns the dog to the McFeelys.

At the McFeelys' house, Mr. McFeely returns the dog to its owners while Mrs. McFeely shows Mister Rogers her new recorder. Using the new and old recorders, Mister Rogers and Mrs. McFeely play Row Row Row Your Boat on the recorder. Mrs. McFeely also plays a more complicated piece by Mozart.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, the power has been restored and MGR-TV is back on the air. Lady Elaine Fairchilde and Lady Aberlin do their best to fill time while they wait for Mr. McFeely to arrive for his own show. With his daily deliveries complete, Mr. McFeely presents a new program on MGR-TV called Deliveries I Have Made. After showing many items he has delivered, Mr. McFeely shares a film about deliver he once made to Esther Island. He concludes the show by singing Speedy Delivery.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers creates a drawing as he listens to music.


Mister Rogers is already in his sweater and sneakers when he arrives with Rondo the St. Bernard.

Rondo is owned by the Walsh family -- "Mr. and Mrs. Walsh and Laura and James."

On MGR-TV, Lady Abelrin dances to I Like To Take My Time.

Some fun background music is provided by Johnny Costa during Mr. McFeely's MGR program. Mr. McFeely even recognizes Mr. Costa at one point: "Thank you, Mr. Costa. Thank you."

The Eshter Island video is also seen on Episode 1025.

A Perfectly Beautiful Day plays as Mister Rogers draws.
