THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

Episode 0120

Episode 0120
Topic N/A
Air Date August 2, 1968

It is raining in the Neighborhood and Mister Rogers arrives with an umbrella and wearing a rain coat. He goes to the kitchen where he demonstrates how water is repelled by his rain coat.

Mister Rogers takes out a balloon to add to the others he has prepared for the Neighborhood of Make-Believe street fair. Although he hopes it is not raining in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, he sings I Hope It Will Rain as he gathers the balloons.

Lady Aberlin stops by dressed as a clown for the fair. She is saddened by the thought of rain in Make-Believe but Mister Rogers uses clown make-up to draw a smile on her face.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe it is raining. Handyman Negri talks with Daniel Striped Tiger who is disappointed by the weather. Handyman Negri sings It's an Ugly Day with Daniel.

At the Museum-Go-Round, Mrs. Frogg is quite pleased with the rain. She reminds X the Owl and Handyman Negri that the weather will not change by wishing. Lady Aberlin, the funny clown, arrives and everyone decides to go ahead with the fair despite the rain.

At the castle, Lady Elaine Fairchilde stops the rain by using her boomerang to make the rain go up instead of falling down. All rain gear is removed and the fair is ready to begin. As a reward for her efforts, Lady Elaine is given a glass of X's fresh orange juice and is allowed the first kiss at the Kiss the King booth. When she attempts to kiss King Friday himself, she is told that the kisses will be directed towards a picture instead.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers explains that you cannot make anything good or anything bad happen just by wishing. He concludes the week by singing Goodnight God.


Notes

  • The Trolley is properly equipped with an umbrella to protect it from the rain.
