|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a mask and after putting it on for a brief second, he talks about how children sometimes have mixed feelings about seeing others in masks.
Mr. McFeely stops by a raccoon in a cage which he shows to Mister Rogers on the front porch. They feed crackers to the raccoon which was borrowed from the Neighborhood zoo. Mr. McFeely also delivers an invitation for Mister Rogers to attend a dance rehearsal at Betty's Aberlin's theater.
At Betty's Little Theater, Jewel Walker is rehearsing a performance with three friends. Their performance is about a family of raccoons preparing for bedtime. After rehearsing, they all put on their costumes and perform again.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about bedtime before singing Please Don't Think It's Funny.
