|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a variety of sponge stamps. He takes them to the kitchen where he uses food coloring to apply the images to paper.
When he attempts to make a phone call, Mister Rogers finds that his telephone is not working. He goes across the street where he uses the Browns' phone to report the issue. While he is there, Bob and Judy Brown show Mister Rogers some of the marionettes and costumes they are currently working with.
Returning to his house, Mister Rogers is visited by the telephone repairman, Mr. Welsch. After checking the telephone and its connections, Mr. Welsch finds that the problem is outside the house. Before leaving, he offers to have Mr. McFeely deliver a film about telephones.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Corney sings I'm a Man Who Manufactures and mentions that he has sold all of his swings. X the Owl is asked to watch for new customers while Corney finishes working on a swing for King Friday. Happy to oblige, X sings a different version of I'm a Man Who Manufactures: "I'm an owl, who is a helper. Who helps, to sell the swings. I'm an owl who helps to sell the swings and every things. I'm an owl, who is a helper."
Back at the house, Mr. McFeely stops by with the film about telephones just as Mr. Welsch calls to say that the phone line has been repaired.
