The last program in Mister Rogers' Neighborhood history, bows out in stoic fashion. Everyone in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe now knows that Lady Elaine is still brooding on that day long ago when somebody hurt her feelings. But when the time comes to ""judge"" all the artwork, Lady Elaine shows up not with a judgment, but with a collage of all the neighbors. It is Lady Elaine's rightful act of compassion toward those around her. Mr. McFeely, fittingly, is the last guest in Mister Rogers' television home. He and Mister Rogers share a video collage of artists in their various fields.

Mr. Rogers visits his friend Tom Ohorgin at his music shop. They try out a flexitone and look at many other obscure musical instruments. the theme of music follows through to the land of Make Believe.
