THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

Episode 1144

Episode 1144
Topic N/A
Air Date March 4, 1971

Mister Rogers arrives with a variety of pictures made by some young friends. After sharing the pictures, Mister Rogers visits a nursery school where he visits with Mrs. Saunders. The eager children at the school show Mister Rogers examples of the many activities that they enjoy such as building with blocks, creating artwork, and pretending.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Mr. McFeely delivers an important package to Dr. Bill Platypus. The package includes an invitation for Dr. Bill to complete his pediatric studies in Australia. In addition, there is an inflatable flying machine which is designed to transport Dr. Bill and his family to Australia. Clearly excited, Dr. Bill cannot wait to share the news with his family. Meanwhile, at the castle, Mrs. Saunders and Lady Aberlin sing It's Such a Good Feeling to Prince Tuesday before Mr. McFeely stops by with news of the Platypus family's potential travel plans.

Back at the primary school, Mister Rogers spends a moment singing with the children before departing. Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about things you might learn at a primary school and concludes by singing Look and Listen.


Notes

  • One young student at the primary school tells Mister Rogers: "You look a little more better on television than you do here." Mister Rogers' responds: "Maybe different, huh? I think sometimes it's funny to see me when I'm not on television. You expect me to be on television because that's what you're used to."
  • Another youngster asks "What's that noise?" In a moment of Neighborhood and studio crossover, Mister Rogers responds: "You mean the music? That's Mr. Costa playing."
