Joe Negri visits the house to repair a ukulele and he and Mister Rogers sing I Think I'm Going to Like Today.

Not everyone in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe has recovered from the previous day's drama. After King Friday tries to apologize, Lady Elaine feels everything is ready for the big surprise and sings a bit of I Think I'm Going to Like Today.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about hurt feelings before Marlilyn Barnett stops by to demonstrate some exercises.

Mr. McFeely delivers a film about how people make bread and Mister Rogers wraps up by singing Tree Tree Tree as he plays his recently-fixed ukulele.


Even after years on the show, when it comes time for Joe Negri to head back to his shop, he has a bit of trouble locating the doorknob as he leaves.

The film footage of bread being made shown by Mr. McFeely was shot at the Wonder Bread Company in Toldeo, OH.
