|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with his suit jacket over his shoulder and explains that it was given to him by a friend and is a little too big. After singing Let's Be Together Today, he takes viewers along as he visits Mr. Frazier's tailor shop.
At the shop, Mr. Frazier measures Mister Rogers and explains how he will alter the jacket to make it a better fit. Mr. Frazier talks about his childhood and how his father was also a tailor. Mister Rogers leaves with another of his jackets which has already been altered by Mr. Frazier.
Returning to his house, Mister Rogers measures himself with a yard stick and talks about how he liked to measure things when he was a boy. He expresses that it doesn't matter how tall you are and a short film of children plays along with a recording of Mister Rogers singing It's You I Like.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday XIII asks Mr. Frazier, the royal tailor, to make a cape for his magician friend, Mr. Appel. Lady Aberlin reports to King Friday that several others in the Neighborhood have agreed to help the Appel family. She moves on to the Platypus mound where she asks for a contribution to the King Friday Queen Sara Saturday Royal Foundation for the Performing Arts (KFQSSRFFTPA). Elsie Jean agrees to bake bread for the artists and Dr. Bill says he will offer free medical care.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers makes his own connect-the-dots activity before he sings It's Such a Good Feeling.
