Cornflake S. Pecially

First MRN Appearance: 0003
Last MRN Appearance: 1765
Performed By: Fred Rogers

Cornflake S. Pecially (Corney) lives in and works at the Rockit factory in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe. Located near the castle, the Rockit factory produces a variety of items but the manufacturing of rockits -- rocking chairs in various shapes and sizes and of many different materials.

Corney once set the Neighborhood of Make-Believe into a panic with one of his items -- parts for a bridge in Southwood -- which was mistakenly believed to be a part for a bomb.[1]

Although Corney is handy with any one of his many tools and has even provided his Neighbors with lessons on how to use them[2], he is prone to an occasional accident. For example, his eagerness to try out a new lathe quickly resulted in an injury to his finger.[3]

The Neighborhood of Make-Believe once celebrated Corney's birthday even though he thought everyone had forgotten.[4] Corney is not married, but Lady Elaine Fairchilde once believed that she was engaged to the rockit maker.

Among the plays and operas performed in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Corney participated in two -- A Star for Kitty in which he played the part of a star and Let the Vet Get the Pet in the role of Old Farmer Pecially.
