Question about a prop?
« on: October 17, 2018, 11:54:34 AM »
Hello everyone: I'm new to the board. How are you all?

I just saw "Won't You Be My Neighbor?" and boy, did it bring back a lot of memories! Including one that is confusing me a bit. I am pretty sure I remember Mr. Rogers having some sort of rack that he would pull down from the ceiling, and there was a telephone (tin can telephone, maybe?) on the rack, and he'd call people on it. Does anybody remember this at all?

If so, does anyone have a screen shot, or remember what this was called?

Thank you so much!

You could be referring to the Telecan he kept by the traffic light in the earlier days of the program. He used it to talk with the people in the Neighborhood of Make Believe.
