THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

Episode 1269

Episode 1269
Topic N/A
Air Date March 1, 1973

Mister Rogers arrives with a small drum and uses various surfaces around him -- his shoes, the floor, his hands -- to tap different rhythms. He uses the drum to tap out the beat to Everybody's Fancy before singing the song itself.

Visiting Negri's Music Shop in hopes of seeing other percussion instruments, Mister Rogers finds Bob Trow minding the store while Mr. Negri is away. Mr. Trow invites Mister Rogers to the rehearsal room where his son's acapella group is practicing. They sing a medley of Mister Rogers' songs including It's Such a Good Feeling, Sometimes People Are Good, and You Can Never Go Down the Drain. Before leaving the shop, Mister Rogers purchases a wood block.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Mr. McFeely delivers a box of chains to the factory as Corney is having a sale on swings. After trying out one of the swings, Mr. McFeely shares the news of the sale throughout the Neighborhood. X the Owl is worried that Corney is still angry with him for knocking over his boxes the previous day. Robert Troll and Corney go to the tree where they help X understand that he is a good person despite his occasional mistakes.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings Good People Sometimes Do Bad Things.
