THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

Episode 1250

Episode 1250
Topic N/A
Air Date May 5, 1972

Mister Rogers arrives empty-handed but promptly retrieves a King Friday marionette just before Mrs. McFeely stops by with a "fast film" of her husband cutting the grass. Before she leaves, she shares a book about mushrooms.

In the Neighborhood or Make-Believe, Bob Brown uses the King Friday marionette from atop the castle. With the help of King Friday's voice, they trick Lady Aberlin into thinking that the marionette is the real King Friday and that he is able to fly.

Lady Aberlin is eager to share her discovery and finds Mr. McFeely cutting the grass near the Museum-Go-Round. While he is very interested to learn that King Friday can fly, Lady Elaine is somewhat skeptical. They all return to the castle where Lady Elaine promptly notices the marionette's strings and spoils the King's trick.

Returning to his yard work, Mr. McFeely finds a large mushroom growing outside the Museum-Go-Round. Lady Elaine is glad to accept the mushroom for the Museum's Mushroom Room.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers explains that not all mushrooms are edible before he uses the traffic light to practice recognizing top, middle, and bottom. He sings Look and Listen before Mr. McFeely stops by with a large collection of mushrooms of various sizes.


Notes

  • The book about mushrooms used at the beginning of this episode is Exotic Mushrooms by Henri Romagnesi.
  • The film of Mr. McFeely mowing the grass can also be seen in Episode 1746.
