THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

Episode 1398

Episode 1398
Topic N/A
Air Date February 26, 1975

Mister Rogers arrives with some magnets which he takes to the kitchen to show how they attract each other: "Magnets are hard to explain, but they're really fun to play with. Looking at one of the magnets which is shaped like a horseshoe, he mentions that Bob Trow is making a horseshoe game at the shop. Before visiting Mr. Trow, Mister Rogers sings You're Growing.

At Bob Trow's workshop, Mister Rogers and Mr. Trow practice horseshoes on the new post Mr. Trow has made. Using scrap pieces of wood, they create a wood sculpture.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday and Prince Tuesday sees Ino A. Horse through a telescope. Lady Aberlin invites him to the castle where Robert Troll gives him horseshoes just his size. Robert Troll also delivers a letter to King Friday from the Platypus family who are visiting the Froggs in Westwood. The letter suggests that Dr. Bill would like to talk with King Friday about something important when they return. Lady Elaine Fairchilde believes that Dr. Bill is planning to build his own telelvision station to compete with MGR-TV.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers shares a wood carving in the shape of an elephant before Bob Trow stops by the house to toss a few more horseshoes.


Notes

  • As Mister Rogers sings You're Growing, a film of children at various ages plays.
  • Prince Tuesday sings his own song to the tune of Troll Talk:

    My name is Tuesday, Tuesday
    This is my daddy Friday here
    My name is Tuesday, Tuesday
    And I like to play right here
