Misterogers (CBC, 1/8/1964)

Network: Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
Air Date: January 8, 1964

Mister Rogers welcomes his television neighbors as he makes a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. While doing so, he sings Won't You Be My Neighbor.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Donna Miller finishes singing Won't You Be My Neighbor before asking Dr. Frogg for advice on caring for her pet turtle which keeps jumping out of its bowl. The turtle does not have a name and Dr. Frogg suggests that it may be leaving the bowl in search of one.

At the Eiffel Tower, Ms. Miller learns of Lady Elaine's upcoming Fun Fair from Collette. Lady Elaine invites Ms. Miller to participate in the Fun Fair by making faces from various food items. They practice with a banana and some marshmallows.

Moving on to the castle, Ms. Miller gives her "banana man" to Cornflake S. Pecially before they sing It's Good To Talk.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers has a banana man of is own and sings It's Good To Talk before concluding his visit for the day.


Although they are not part of this episode's main storyline, Daniel Striped Tiger and X the Owl are briefly seen passing by in the background as Ms. Miller talks with Collette.

After leaving the factory, Ms. Miller calls to make an appointment with King Friday XIII and learns that he is showing his royal portraits in the castle garden. We see this play out during the credits for this episode.
