Guests Susan Linn

Mister Rogers arrives with a small television on loan from Susan Linn. He explains that he does not live inside a television set even though most people see him on TV. Mister Rogers shows a live feed of himself on the small television to help explain that he is a real person whose picture is being shown on the screen.

After singing I'm Interested in Things, Mister Rogers returns the television set to Susan Linn at Betty's Little Theater where she talks with her puppets -- Audrey Duck and Catalion. Audrey is disappointed that their television is so small and worries that her friends will not want to visit because of its size. Susan explains that they could not afford a larger screen and that her friends like her as a person, not for her possessions. Returning to his house, Mister Rogers suggests that the most fun people to play with are those who are able to be creative and use their imagination.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Audrey Duck is showing her television set to King Friday XIII and the King requests that Handyman Negri make him a television set of his own. Referencing a television catalog and finding most television sets to be far too expensive, King Friday decides on a color television kit, at a cost of 250, to be assembled by Handyman Negri.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers encourages viewers to create their own stories and to share those stories with others.

Notes

  • Handyman Negri places the order for the television by phone with Miss Paulificate. He asks that the television be delivered by Mr. McFeely from the "Super Catalog Store."
  • Audrey Duck's television appears to be a Symphonic Minni TV (TPS-5050).
