|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with the seat for an exercise bicycle which is already set up in his front room. As he demonstrates the machine, he explains that this is one way that people exercise their bodies. Mister Rogers encourages viewers to exercise their minds by remembering yesterday's opera as he shows a series of pictures from the performance.
Mr. McFeely stops by advertising a special on banana baked goods at Brockett's Bakery. Mister Rogers takes a moment to try out Mr. McFeely's bicycle and talks briefly about learning to ride a bike.
At Brockett's Bakery, Mister Rogers relaxes with Chef Brockett in the back room as they talk about yesterday's opera.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Henrietta Pussycat is upset because she did not have the opportunity to sing in the opera and was too shy to ask. She feels better as she is encouraged to join her friends in some simple exercises recently recommended by Dr. Meow Meow Meow. Everyone exercises as they sing Exercise Your Eyes. Chef Brockett delivers a banana to Lady Elaine Fairchilde.
Back at the bakery, Mister Rogers purchases a loaf of banana break before Chef Brockett joins him on a walk back to the house. Mrs. Shenk agrees to watch the bakery.
At the house, Chef Brockett enjoys a glass of water on the porch before returning to the bakery. Inside, Mister Rogers concludes by singing It's Such a Good Feeling.
