|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a pogo stick which he takes outside to demonstrate. After several failed attempts, he explains that some tasks take a lot of practice and patience. Before going back inside, he sings I Like To Take My Time.
Inside, Mister Rogers takes a phone call from Len Schugar -- a professional photographer who will be taking a picture of the Rogers family. After sharing snapshot of his family, he talks about hopping animals and takes out a toy kangaroo.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Corney has made a hopping chair for his new toy kangaroo -- a gift from the Platypus family. Bunny Rabbit, who is visiting the Neighbohrood, tries out the hopping chair as well. Corney has made a hopping chair for big people as well and Lady Aberlin is glad to give it a try.
At the castle, King Friday is talking with two other guests to the Neighborhood -- Captain Kangaroo and Mr. Moose. They join Lady Aberlin at Corney's factory where Captain Kangaroo takes a turn on the hopping chair. Handyman Negri arrives and invites everyone to the castle's M Room where they enjoy a collection of movies from Australia.
Back at the house, Mr. Schugar arrives and prepares to take photographs of the Rogers family. When Mister Rogers' family arrives, they gather near the piano where Mr. Schugar takes pictures as they sing and play It's Such a Good Feeling. Moving to the kitchen, Mr. Schugar takes a few photos of the family standing at the fish tank.
Closing out the day, the Rogers family sings Tomorrow as they depart.
