THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

Episode 1397

Episode 1397
Topic N/A
Air Date February 25, 1975

Mister Rogers arrives with some large building blocks which he uses to build a tower, a street, and a car. He thinks about some young friends who used blocks and crates to make a pretend fire engine.

Sitting on the porch, Mister Rogers waits to see who the first person might be to come along. Almost immediately, Mr. McFeely arrives to invite Mister Rogers to his house where he has an animal to show.

At the McFeelys' house, Mr. and Mrs. McFeely show Mister Rogers a young llama. They talk about its thick fur and its eating habits.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Mr. McFeely delivers some building blocks to the Platypus mound and Daniel is concerned that the blocks might be used to build "something bad." When Lady Aberlin builds with the blocks, they start to dance around on their own. She and X the Owl (who is pretending to be a fireman) are amazed until they realize that Lady Elaine Fairchilde has attached strings to the blocks.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers attaches string to his own blocks to make them dance. He concludes by singing Pretending.
