Mister Rogers arrives with a package which he received on behalf of Francois Clemmons. As he looks at the various labels on the package and wonders what is inside, he sings I'm Interested in Things.

Francois Clemmons arrives and opens the package which contains his policeman uniform from his days as Officer Clemmons. He shares that he will be wearing the uniform as he teaches an upcoming driving course and asks to borrow Mister Rogers' traffic light. Before leaving, Mr. Clemmons sings It's Such a Good Feeling.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Daniel has been asked by Edgar Cooke to wait at the castle for a grocery delivery from Mr. McFeely. Officer Clemmons comes by and asks Daniel if he would like to join some friends who are playing. Although he wants to play, Daniel remembers his responsibility and tells Officer Clemmons that he will have to play another time.

Moments later, King Friday insists that Daniel go on a "royal errand" which leaves no one at the castle when Mr. McFeely attempts to make his delivery. Leaving a note behind, Mr. McFeely is unable to deliver the groceries. Officer Clemmons is able to find Mr. McFeely and the groceries as King Friday apologizes to Daniel for not being a better listener.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers cleans the inside of the traffic light as he sings I Like to Be Told.


The zip code shown on the package for Francois Clemmos is 15213 -- the zip code for Pittsburgh, PA.

As he sings It's Such a Good Feeling, Francois Clemmons slightly flubs one line but moves on without hesitation as Mister Rogers joins him in singing the rest of the song.
