THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

Episode 1504

Episode 1504
Topic Make-Believe (Creativity)
Air Date July 1, 1982

Mister Rogers arrives with a popcorn popper which he has received as a gift from his wife. Taking it to the kitchen, Mister Rogers begins to demonstrate the popper when he receives a phone call from Joe Negri inviting him come to the music shop.

At Negri's Music Shop, Mister Rogers is introduced to Ray Detwiler, a horn player who demonstrates a variety of rare horns. With Mr. Detwiler, Mister Rogers and Mr. Negri play Tree Tree Tree.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers returns to the popcorn popper which he demonstrates for viewers. Patiently waiting for the popcorn to pop, Mister Rogers sings Let's Think of Something to Do.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, the search for Reardon continues as the plans for the opera commence. At the tree, Chef Brockett gives popcorn balls to Henrietta and X before heading to castle to offer one to King Friday. Quite pleased, King Friday declares that there should be popcorn in the opera. Handyman Negri arrives at the castle with a horn which is played by King Friday in hopes of attracting Reardon. Instead, Mr. McFeely arrives with a recorded message from Reardon -- he would like to be in the opera but he is busy making the news.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers returns to the kitchen where he adds popcorn to a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
