|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a stuffed toy camel and shares a film about a time he rode a real camel in "a very hot country." Sitting at the piano, he plays some music while encouraging viewers to pretend they are riding on a camel themselves.
At Betty's Little Theater, Betty Aberlin explains that the Polka Dot Players were expected to perform today but they are now un able to be there. Disappointed, Betty is left to find entertainment for the audience she is expecting.
Together with Bob Trow, Betty sorts through a box of costumes, talks about feelings, and plays a game on the stage. When Joe Negri arrives with his guitar, he agrees to help with the entertainment as they all join together in singing It's Such a Good Feeling. Audrey Roth arrives to clean the theater for the upcoming performance. Betty Aberlin gives Mister Rogers a small toy to take home with him.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about things that can be startling and sings The Truth Will Make Me Free.
