|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with an envelope he found on his porch. Opening the envelope, he finds a cassette tape which contains a message recorded by Bob Trow instructing Mister Rogers to call 311-555-4321 if he'd like to open the secret package from the previous day. When he calls the number, he learns from Mr. Trow that he is allowed to open the box only after he sings Sometimes People Are Good. Once he sings the song, Mister Rogers finally opens the secret package to find a magnifying glass.
After demonstrating how the magnifying glass makes things look bigger, Mister Rogers plays a game of "Do You Know What This Is?" with Picture Picture -- a close-up image appears and he is to guess what the object is.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Bob Dog is playing with a magnifying glass and King Friday thinks that it can actually make Prince Tuesday grow.
At the Platypus mound, Lady Elaine Fairchilde starts to open the package labeled "do not open" when the recorded voice of Dr. Bill Platypus is heard: "This is a recording. If anyone opens this trunk any further, that person will not get a present." Just then, Mr. McFeely arrives with more presents to be left at the mound and Lady Elaine is certain one must be for her.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers thinks about special places before Bob Trow stops by with a large sheet of paper. Mister Rogers lies down on the paper while Mr. Trow traces his outline.
