I don't ever remember the traffic light being used that way.  In what episodes have you seen it used that way?  Was it only in the 1968 and 1969 episodes?
Title: Re: MRN Trivia
Post by: mitsguy2001 on May 08, 2012, 12:19:02 AM
Here is a good trivia question: What is the only year (since 1979) in which the Starting School week (Episodes 1461-1465) did not air?  And what is the most likely reason why it did not air?

Post by: ladyelainefairchilde on May 08, 2012, 09:03:34 AM
Here is a good trivia question: What is the only year (since 1979) in which the Starting School week (Episodes 1461-1465) did not air?  And what is the most likely reason why it did not air?

I would have to say the summer of 1989. That was the yr the entire 1970 season had aired minus
1071-1075. I wonder if they knew by that time this was the last time reruns from that far back
would ever air again on PBS? I am guessing they did not want to interrupt weeks between the
1970 to break for 1979 episodes. To allow the 1970 season to air without any confusion to a
younger viewer. Also Josephine The Short Neck Giraffe had aired in May that same yr was the
debut. That had a school theme as well in that muscial story.

That is correct!  Interestingly, the previous time that the 1970 season reran (in the summer of 1986), Starting School did air.  But it aired in between 1120 and 1121, so it at least didn't interrupt the pregnancy plot.  Though I wonder if maybe kids did still find it confusing for Tuesdan and Ana to go from infants to school age and back to infants again.  Strangely, I don't remember it airing in 1986, even though I watched MRN regularly that summer.  I wonder if maybe I was on vacation that week.

Lady A singing to Henrietta?

I'd say wait a day or two before giving the answer.

Title: Re: MRN Trivia
Post by: mitsguy2001 on May 21, 2012, 11:06:48 AM
Since nobody has guessed correctly yet, I'm going to give a hint: its lyrics weren't exactly the same as the familiar version of that song, and its first word wasn't even "You".
Title: Re: MRN Trivia
Post by: pastorscott on May 21, 2012, 10:17:26 PM
To signal that someone from the NOMB wanted to talk to him.
Title: Re: MRN Trivia

Was it the tune when the traffic light went off?
Title: Re: MRN Trivia
Post by: mitsguy2001 on May 22, 2012, 11:15:22 AM
Since nobody has answered correctly, I'll give the answer: it was Henrietta singing it to Lady Aberlin.

To explain further, it was in Episode 1088, from the 1970 season.  Betty Aberlin visits Fred and gives him a black angel fish for his aquarium (she is also wearing black, but I don't know if there is any significance to that).  In the NOM, Lady Aberlin dresses as a black angel fish, who swims around the world searching for owls and pussycats.  X and Henrietta are afraid that the fish is going to eat them.  But then the fish says that she doesn't eat owls and pussycats, but she kisses them.  When she kisses X and Henrietta, they realize that it's Lady Aberlin.  Henrietta then sings the "You are pretty song" to Lady Aberlin, but of course sings it with meows, "Meow meow pretty, meow meow black . . . "  Lady Aberlin then points it out that she can sing the same song to her, and then sings the familiar version.  X the Owl then points out that nobody has ever sang a song about how he is blue, so Lady Aberlin then sings a version of the song for X.  Later in the episode, back at Fred's house, Fred sings that song to the black angel fish that Betty gave him.  So, this episode uses 4 different versions of that song, and is first sung by Henrietta!

Episode 1260.
Title: Re: MRN Trivia
Post by: mitsguy2001 on May 22, 2012, 04:02:45 PM
Episode 1260.

Sorry, that is not correct.

Hint: It is NOT a Friday episode.  The last time Tomorrow was sang on a Friday was Episode 1130.

Another trivia question: What was the last episode ever to feature the Tomorrow song?

Since there are still no answers, I'll give another hint: it's an episode with a well known guest star.
Title: Re: MRN Trivia
Post by: MrRogers143 on May 24, 2012, 04:55:07 PM
Episode 1128.
Title: Re: MRN Trivia
Post by: mitsguy2001 on May 24, 2012, 05:04:58 PM
Episode 1128.

No.  It was much later than that.

Hint: Both David Newell and Betty Aberlin have said that they really liked this guest star, and the episodes that she was in.
Title: Re: MRN Trivia

Title: Re: MRN Trivia
Post by: MrRogers143 on June 03, 2012, 11:09:16 PM
It's part of a song that traditionally sung at football games, like The Super Bowl. If no one guesses one week from today, I'll give the answer and post a new question.

Post by: mitsguy2001 on June 03, 2012, 11:24:15 PM
I actually have a 3 part trivia question that we can do, in addition to the one already posted (if my answer is wrong).

1. Who helped Fred install the aquarium?
2. Who helped Fred paint the walls blue?
3. Who helped Fred paint another, rarely seen room?

All 3 of them are well known cast members, not obscure guest stars.
Title: Re: MRN Trivia
Post by: MrRogers143 on June 05, 2012, 04:31:32 PM
mitsguy2001, you got half the trivia question correct. The Trolley did play a part of the Star Spangled Banner, but you also have to give me the lyrics to the part the Trolley played.
Title: Re: MRN Trivia

mitsguy2001, you got half the trivia question correct. The Trolley did play a part of the Star Spangled Banner, but you also have to give me the lyrics to the part the Trolley played.

I'm guessing "Oh say can you see".  Honestly, that's an impossible question for anyone who doesn't have a tape of that episode.
Title: Re: MRN Trivia
Post by: MrRogers143 on June 05, 2012, 08:52:09 PM
Hmm good point. Well, actually the lyrics were "And The Rocket's Red Glare, The Bomb's Bursting In Air..." BTW, I don't have that episode on tape, but I remember watching it when it was on YouTube.
Title: Re: MRN Trivia
Post by: mitsguy2001 on June 05, 2012, 11:10:59 PM
Sounds like it's time for my 3 part question.  Anyone want to answer?

1. Who helped Fred install the aquarium?
2. Who helped Fred paint the walls blue?
3. Who helped Fred paint another, rarely seen room?

All 3 of them are well known cast members, not obscure guest stars.

Title: Re: MRN Trivia
Post by: MrRogers143 on June 13, 2012, 11:39:10 PM
Honestly, I can oly answer question number 2. Bob Trow and Fred Rogers worked together to make the Television House walls blue. The other two were probably from before my time.

You are correct on Part 2.  You should be able to do Part 3, since that was from a later episode than where the walls were painted blue.  Part 1 was before your time.
Title: Re: MRN Trivia

I just saw episode 1326 when it was on YouTube. I never saw it on Television.
Title: Re: MRN Trivia
Post by: mitsguy2001 on June 14, 2012, 06:41:31 PM
Since #2 has already been answered correctly, I'll give some hints for #1 and #3.

First of all, the answers to both of those questions are people who are still alive.

#1 was from a black and white episode.  And it was a character who remained until the end of the series.  So, think of which characters were in the black and white episodes and remained until the end.

#3 was from a late pre-79 episode.  And the answer is someone who enjoys painting in real life.

Neither of them were in the EEN episodes.  They were both characters who had their debut during the first week of black and white episodes that aired nationally on NET.
Title: Re: MRN Trivia
Post by: MrRogers143 on June 15, 2012, 09:18:20 AM
I'm just guessing here.
1. Mr. McFeely
2. Betty Aberlin
Title: Re: MRN Trivia
Post by: mitsguy2001 on June 15, 2012, 11:21:24 AM
I'm just guessing here.
1. Mr. McFeely
2. Betty Aberlin

That is correct!  I assume you intended Betty for #3, not #2 (#2 was already correctly answered as Bob Trow).

In case you were wondering: the room that Betty paints is the garage where Fred shows clips of old episodes.  The episode is 1457.

The episode where Mr. McFeely helps Fred set up the aquarium is 87.

New Question: Name the order in which Mister Rogers got the Neighborhood of Make Believe Models.

I just got back from vacation today, so sorry I didn't respond earlier.  The order was:

Clock (beginning of Episode 1066), castle (later in 1066), tree (1067), museum go ground (1068), platypus mound (1069), factory (1070), Eiffel tower (allegedly 1080).

Nice, but you missed one.

I assume you are referring to the trolley, which he got later than any of the others I listed.  So, it was:
Clock, castle, tree, musuem go round, platypus mound, factory, Eiffel tower, trolley.
Title: Re: MRN Trivia
Post by: MrRogers143 on July 02, 2012, 03:57:48 PM

Was it used during Music Week, in 1549, when we saw King Friday's trumpeters?  I know when Fred went to see the Empire Brass Quintet in that episode, and they played the song that the Rocky fanfare comes from.
Title: Re: MRN Trivia

Obviously nobody knows the answer, and it seems that to know every dance she has ever performed, you would need to have watched every episode, which probably nobody (not even Tim, yet) has done.  Can you give us a hint?  Or tell us the answer and we can move on to the next question.  :)

Well the only one I know of was tap and ballet. But here is a new question, what job was Lady Aberlin given on episode 1626?

Here is the next question:

What popular singer released, in 2013, all of the following:

1. A song that includes (in the actual song, not the title) the title of one of Fred's songs.
2. A lyric video that includes an animal that is of the same species as an MRN puppet.
3. A music video that includes an animal that is of the same species as an MRN puppet.
4. Another music video that includes a different animal that is also of the same species as an MRN puppet.

Note that #2, 3, and 4 are all referring to different animals, and that none of them are referring to the song in #1 (although #2 and #3 can be from the same song, #4 obviously is not).

Ok, I'll give some hints:

Fred's song mentioned in #1 was used in a frequently discussed episode that had its last airing during the summer of 1990 (that was not the only time that song was used, nor the only time).  And when that episode first aired, Betty was the same age that the singer I'm referring to currently is. (that should help limit it, even if you don't know the exact episode I'm talking about).

The puppets mentioned in #2, #3, and #4 all reprised their roles, as adults, on DTN, and have a child or other relative who has a prominent role on DTN.

Anyone want to guess, or should I just give the answer if everyone has given up?

Another hint: the song referred to in #1 (the song by the answer to the question, not Fred's song) has the same last word as one of Fred's songs that was not used after the 1968 season.  The song in #2 and #3 has a title that was mentioned by the puppet referred to as #3, but he (another hint) rarely used that word.

Sorry, that is not correct.

As another hint: I realized that I posted about part #1 in another post of mine.  So if you search my post history (you don't even have to go that far back), you can find it.  If you figure out #1 and know the answer to the question, you should then also be able to figure out #2, #3, and #4, since there aren't that many MRN animal puppets that reprise their role in DTN.  Plus, as for #3, if you think of the well-known animal puppets in MRN, and think of songs from 2013, what comes to mind?

I'll give it another week, and if nobody wants to answer, I'll give you the answer.

2. A lyric video that includes an animal that is of the same species as an MRN puppet.

4. Another music video that includes a different animal that is also of the same species as an MRN puppet.

Note that #2, 3, and 4 are all referring to different animals, and that none of them are referring to the song in #1 (although #2 and #3 can be from the same song, #4 obviously is not).

I had forgotten about this trivia question, and since it seems nobody wants to try to answer, I'll give the answer.

The artist is Katy Perry.

For Part 1, the Katy Perry song I'm referring to is "By the Grace of God".  It includes the line "The Truth Will Set You Free", which is the title of an MRN song.

For Part 2, I'm referring to the lyric video for "Roar", where at the end of the video, it has her cat, Kitty Purry

For Part 3, I'm referring to the music video for "Roar", which has a tiger.

For Part 4, I'm referring to the music video for "Unconditionally", which has an owl.

I wonder if Katy Perry was an MRN fan when she was a kid!  I could picture her being a fan of the show.

Well, I have a question not about the Neighborhood program per se, but having to do with it.

A YouTube user called TheAsianCriticChick has done a review of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. Give me the episodes used in the review, what she had said after watching it once, and what she had to say at the end of the video.
