|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers has been invited to the McFeely house to celebrate Mrs. McFeely's birthday. He finds a small hand mirror in a drawer and wraps it as a gift.
At the McFeely house, Bill Hendry demonstrates who to signal by using Coast Guard flags. After spelling out a few words -- including "Happy Birthday" for Mrs. McFeely -- Mr. Hendry give the flags to her for her birthday. Mr. McFeely suggests that Mr. Hendry will return at a later time to give Mrs. McFeely flag waving lessons. Inside, Mrs. McFeely is delighted with the mirror she receives from Mister Rogers. Mr. McFeely shares a film about a time when he received a special "McFeely" flag from his parents.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Elaine Fairchilde irritates Mr. McFeely and Dr. Bill Platypus when she uses a hand mirror to reflect light into their eyes. Seeking the attention of her neighbors, Lady Elaine paints a rock gold and claims to have discovered real gold under the wall of the Museum-Go-Round. King Friday arrives promptly but soon enough realizes that the rocks are painted. Lady Aberlin tries to help Lady Elaine recognize positive ways she can get the attention of her friends and neighbors.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about Lady Elaine's actions before he sings The Clown in Me. He concludes for the day by drawing a simple mask on construction paper.
