|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Fruit Picking Day
It is fruit picking day and Daniel and his dad are eager to go to the Enchanted Garden. When they arrive, they are welcomed by the royal family before everyone begins picking fruit. When Daniel and Prince Wednesday have trouble reaching the cherries on the tree, Prince Tuesday reminds them that everyone is big enough to do something.
After taking some picked cherries to King Friday and Queen Sara, Daniel and Prince Wednesday are asked to pick green apples. Again they are frustrated when they cannot reach the fruit so Daniel make-believes that they he is a giant. Dad Tiger reminds them that everyone is big enough to do something so they carry the apples to the King.
Queen Sara sends them back out to find the special golden pear. When Daniel finds the pear under a tree root, Prince Tuesday's hand is too big to reach it -- but not Prince Wednesday's. He retrieves the pear and Miss Elaina takes it to the Queen.
Everyone joins together for a fruit picking picnic before singing about being happy with being small.
