Episode 1437
Topic N/A
Air Date April 22, 1975

Mister Rogers mentions that a magician will be coming to visit later. He shows a film of various forms that blend in with their backgrounds -- seeming to disappear. Taking out a songbook, Mister Rogers sings Wishes Don't Make Things Come True.

Mr. McFeely stops by with a magician's hat and cape. Putting them on, he covers a small foam rabbit with a scarf and removes it to reveal a larger rabbit.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, X the Owl receives a letter telling him that Professor Scanlon from the Owl Correspondence School will be visiting on Friday.

Bob Dog comes by the tree where X and Henrietta have arranged a magic trick which will make Henrietta disappear. Bob Dog is quite disturbed by the trick until X explains to him that things do not disappear just because he sometimes cannot see them.

Lady Elaine Fairchilde arrives on her leaf mat and performs a trick of her own by temporarily turning the Neighborhood upside down.

Back at the house, Paul Gertner stops by and performs a few magic tricks for Mister Rogers.
