|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a variety of ice skates and explains the differences between hockey skates, figure skates, and beginner's skates with a double blade. In the kitchen, he takes out a tray of ice and moves a tiny model pair of skates around the "rink." After remembering a time he went ice skating with others from the Neighborhood, Mister Rogers sits at the piano to play some skating music for viewers to listen to as they pretend to skate. He emphasizes the importance of persistence when learning to do anything new and then shares a film of performance ice skaters.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin shovels snow outside the castle as King Friday shares his desire to go ice skating. Lady Elaine Fairchilde arrives and uses her boomerang to make more snow fall. When Reardon passes by on his way to perform for the king and queen of Otherland, he is surprised to encounter the cold weather in Make-Believe. A phone call from Otherland informs him that he his visit there will be delayed and he will have the opportunity to spend some time in Make-Believe -- an opportunity to produce a winter opera!
Back at the house, Mister Rogers makes paper snowflakes and shares an animated film set to a You've Got To Do It.
