THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

Episode 1138

Episode 1138
Topic N/A
Air Date Februry 24, 1971

Mister Rogers arrives with a photograph of lions which he shares before taking viewers to the porch where he has two lions cubs on loan from the Neighborhood zoo. The cubs explore the porch area before Mr. McFeely arrives to take them back to the zoo.

After retrieving a book from inside, Mister Rogers shows a picture of a girl wishing she was an angry lion and sings Wishes Don't Make Things Come True.

Back for a visit in the Neighborhood, Francois Clemmons stops by and sings a new opera song he has learned.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Handyman Negri is putting the final touches on the royal waterfall. Officer Clemmons arrives at the castle where he is to serve as the waterfall singer. Communicating by walkie-talkie, Handyman Negri asks Donkey Hodie to start the windmill at Someplace Else which makes the waterfall work. Officer Clemmons sings as the water begins to flow.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers uses a dip tube to clean the aquarium. He concludes by singing I'm Proud of You.


Notes

  • The lion cubs are named Romeo and Juliet.
  • The book with the picture of a girl wishing she was an angry lion is the 1970 Mister Rogers' Songbook.
  • King Friday uses the "walking talking" to thank Donkey Hodie for his assistance.
