|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a bag of seashells and talks about how living creatures live can live inside of them. Taking them to the kitchen, he observes the many differences between the shells before inviting Bob Trow over to make something from the shells. As he waits for Mr. Trow to arrive, Mister Rogers expresses his appreciation for his television neighbors by singing I Need You.
When Bob Trow arrives, Mister Rogers watches as he mixes plaster of Paris and pours it over some of the shells. The molds will make paper weights once they are dry.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday XIII recognizes that Bob Dog and Robert Troll have the same eyes. At the Platypus mound, Robert Troll meets the new baby platypus and gives her a sea shell. Moving on to the tree, Robert Troll talks with X the Owl and Henrietta Pussycat who are curious after seeing both Bob Dog and Robert Troll in make-believe at the same time. They are excited to learn that Robert Troll has met the new baby platypus.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers and Bob Trow talk briefly about pretending and waiting.
