THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

Episode 1187

Episode 1187
Topic N/A
Air Date May 4, 1971

Mister Rogers feeds the fish and explains the purpose of various pieces of equipment attached to the aquarium. Watching the fish, he sings I'm Taking Care of You before Picture Picture shows a film about large aquariums.

Mr. McFeely stops by with a bag belonging to Linda Oehlschlager -- a young neighbor who is an experienced babysitter. Linda arrives with a baby doll and uses it to demonstrate some of the skills she has learned in her babysitting classes as she talks about babysitters.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Mr. McFeely delivers a message from the king and queen of Other Land inviting King Friday and Queen Sara to dinner the following evening. When Lady Aberlin agrees to babysit Prince Tuesday, King Friday gives her a brief lesson on his new gold bass fiddle and she is encouraged to play it while Prince Tuesday sleeps.

Lady Aberlin tells Lady Elaine Fairchilde that she would like Daniel to keep her company at the castle while she babysits. This information is miscommunicated to Daniel by Lady Elaine who tells him that King Friday and Queen Sara want him to babysit the prince. Daniel is nervous and feels unprepared for such responsibility but Lady Aberlin quickly clears up the misunderstanding.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks more with Linda about babysitting.
