|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with strips of paper which he takes to the kitchen to prepare for a paper mache project. When Mr. McFeely stops by with a bowl of paste which he and Mister Rogers use with the paper to make a small finger puppet.
With the permission of Mrs. Sweenie, Mister Rogers takes a bus to the office of Dr. Mermelstein where he observes Meghan Sweenie's check-up. Dr. Mermelstein explains each procedure as he finds Meghan in good health.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Elaine Fairchilde is upset by Prince Tuesday's frequent crying and uses her boomerang to make a pill that she claims will make him stop. King Friday, although bothered by the crying, is concerned with the safety of the pill. After checking the pill, Dr. Mermelstein says he cannot recommend the pill and mentions that pills do not always cure everything. The doctor is taken inside to give Prince Tuesday a check-up and Dr. Bill feels inspired to become a pediatrician in addition to his duties as an animal doctor.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings I'm Taking Care of You before he cleans up the kitchen.
