THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

Episode 1253

Episode 1253
Topic N/A
Air Date May 10, 1972
Songs Won't You Be My Neighbor?;
Sometimes People Are Good;
It's Such a Good Feeling
Guests Susan Linn

Mister Rogers recalls the art work made by Ezra Keats using oil paints and water as he arrives with some paint of his own. In the kitchen, he uses a dropper to apply paint to a folded paper towel and rice paper which creates colorful designs when unfolded.

Mr. McFeely stops by and tells Mister Rogers that Mrs. McFeely will be stopping by and he'll certainly know when she does.

At Betty's Little Theater, Susan Linn is making up a story with Audrey Duck and Catalion. Mister Rogers suggests a story where Audrey Duck has made a mistake. Susan Linn runs with the idea as the story involves a picture of Catalion which was painted over by Audrey Duck.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings Sometimes People Are Good before he is visited by Mrs. McFeely who arrives on a motorcycle. When Mister Rogers suggests that "it's strange to see a lady like [Mrs. McFeely] with a motorcycle, she responds that "women can do just about anything that they want to."
