|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a violin and a viola and describes their various parts. He attempts to play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star on both but the sound is offkey as he has never practiced either instrument. Talking about the importance of practice and how a person does not always feel like practicing a skill, Mister Rogers sings Sometimes People Are Good.
Mr. Grebanier, a member of the string quartet that performed yesterday at the castle, stops by with his cello. He demonstrates his instrument by playing a piece of music by Bach.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Elaine sings The Clown in Me and has turned the Neighborhood upside down with her eagle-winged boomerang. X the Owl is clearly unhappy about this arrangement and Lady Elaine returns everything to normal. After Lady Aberlin joins her in the song, Lady Elaine finds that King Friday thinks the upside-down Neighborhood is charming. Lady Elaine agrees to only turn things upside down when that is what people want.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers is laying upside down on the couch. He concludes for the day by singing Tree Tree Tree.
