After breaking a shoe lace the previous day, Mister Rogers puts new laces in his sneakers. With him he has brought a large box filled with a variety of wooden toys made by a group of young friends. He talks about how each toy is unique before singing Everybody's Fancy.

Mrs. Clemmons stops by and shares a poem she has written about her new job as an assistant to the editor of a magazine. Mister Rogers invites Mrs. Clemmons and her husband to a farewell gathering at his home tomorrow. Mister Rogers calls Chef Brockett to ask about Mrs. Clemmons' favorite dessert -- raspberry delight.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Chef Brockett surveys the Neighborhood hoping to find out which kind of raspberry delight it is that the Mrs. Clemmons likes the best since there are so many variations to choose from. After Henrietta Pussycat and Chef Brockett sing You Are Pretty, X the Owl suggests that Chef Brockett simply ask Mrs. Clemmons what kind she prefers.

Back at the house, Chef Brockett calls Mrs. Clemmons and learns that she and her husband like all kinds of raspberry delight. Chef Brockett and Mister Rogers sit at the kitchen table where they pretend to make and eat a raspberry delight.


There are no "Neighbors" listed in this episode's credits which should include W.P. Barker, Don Brockett, and Carole Clemmons.

Elsie Jean Platypus' favorite kind of raspberry delight is #302 from her book One Thousand Raspberry Delights. Her great-grandmother once made this recipe for her.

X the Owl is clock-sitting for Daniel Striped Tiger who is at a clock-lover's meeting.
