|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with an operator's telephone headset and goes to the kitchen where he uses a wire coat hanger and masking tape to make his own pretend headset. He shows pictures of various types of telephones and explains how to call the operator. Picture Picture shares a film about a telephone operator and how phone calls are connected.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Reardon is talking with King Friday on the telecan when he has the idea to make the Pineapple Can Telephone Company the focus of his opera. At the Museum-Go-Round, Lady Elaine Fairchilde has several fresh tomatoes and suggests that the opera be about the Tomato Can Telephone Company instead. Moving on to the castle, Reardon and Lady Aberlin move on to the castle where they announce to King Friday that the opera will be about pineapples and tomotoes. Before leaving, Reardon sings It's Such a Good Feeling for the king.
Back at the house, Mr. McFeely stops by with a pineapple and a tomoato. After comparing the two, Mister Rogers cuts into each one to show the many ways they are different. He concludes by singing It's Such a Good Feeling.
