Episode 1087

Air Date: March 3, 1970
Previous Episode: 1086
Next Episode: 1088

Mister Rogers arrives with a box of crayons and a film about how crayons are made. After watching the film, he takes the crayons to the kitchen where he writes various words on colored paper and sings It's Such a Good Feeling.

Mrs. Saunders stops by with a poem about moving written by Mrs. Clemmons which she shares with Mister Rogers. She also shares some pictures of people moving drawn by children in the Neighborhood.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Mrs. Saudners is helping Lady Elaine Fairchilde make a paper chain which is intended to prevent Officer Clemmons from moving away. With Officer Clemmons tied up, Lady Elaine sings You Will Not Go. When Officer Clemmons explains that the chain will not make him stay -- he is there because he wants to be -- Lady Elaine allows him to free himself. He asks to take a piece of the chain with him as a decoration for his new home. Mrs. Saunders joins Officer Clemmons in singing I'm Glad I'm the Way I Am.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers and Mrs. Saunders sing a quiet song about fish before they make plans for gifts to give Officer Clemmons and Mrs. Clemmons. Concluding for the day, Mister Rogers recalls the film about the crayon factory before singing I'm Glad I'm the Way I Am.


Although not the same film, a film about a crayon factory was used later in Episode 1481 as well as Episode 109 of Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood.

There are no "Neighbors" listed in this episode's credits which should include Francois Clemmons and Carol Saunders.
