|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a few different kinds of kites -- a few of which he assmbles on the floor. As he works, he sings I Like to Take My Time. Mister Rogers then remembers a time he flew a kite near the ocean and talks about how flying a kite can sometimes be frustrating.
At Negri's Music Shop, Mister Rogers is introduced to Richard Kvistad -- a percussionist who demonstrates a kettle drum. When Audrey Roth arrives to clean the shop, she joins in by using her garbage can as a drum of her own.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Elaine Fairchilde and Bob Dog wonder if grown-ups ever get scared. They meet at the castle where they use a kite that resembles a witch to frighten King Friday. Upset with Bob Dog and Lady Elaine, King Friday explains that grown-ups have feelings, too.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings a variation of Sometimes People Are Good.
