Episode Recap

Rogers takes watercolors to the kitchen. He merges purple and orange together. "That's still water and some purple and orange," he says. Mr. McFeely gives Rogers a laser pointer. He takes a call from Mrs. McFeely, who has a storytelling friend coming to the McFeely house. In the NOM, Queen Sara has a package for Mr. McFeely to deliver to Purple Panda. It's a funny-shaped orange item with the strange command written on it: "Do not open," McFeely gives the package to Mayor Maggie. She tosses the package in the air, but it doesn't come down. X the Owl offers to look for it. He can't rescue it, but he tells Mayor Maggie it is heading for Westwood. Chuck Aber then approaches Mayor Maggie with the package, which is now half-purple and half-orange. Aber tosses the package and it disappears. X the Owl rescues the package, now colored yellow in places. Back in the real neighborhood, Mister Rogers visits the McFeelys' house for the first time post-75. Gay Ducey, the storyteller, gives a crowd of children a few song lyrics for them to sing at strategic times. Ducey adapts different voices during her story of a lizard's song and a bear's troubles remembering it (from the book Lizard Song by George Shannon). At his television house, Rogers writes a thank-you note to the person who gave him the laser pointer. Songs: Won't You Be My Neighbor?, You Are Special, Speedy Delivery To You (second version), Good Feeling.
