Behind The Scenes

I was just reading about the work episode where Mister Rogers shows the television studio, and I wonder if he ever did the same thing in a pre 79 episode?

I don't know any pre-79s, but besides the Work episode (1530), there are two other post-75s -- 1468 (where he shows the model pan as if it were the set) and 1546, where he shows the studio just like he does in 1530.

Speaking of 1546, for the record, I'm not the Nicky who's the piano player in that episode, even though I think I am the same age as he was at the time of its debut and taping, 6 years old (or approximately that age) and now 34.

Would 1384 count?  A film was made of Fred and Bill Barker working the puppets in the NOM.

I haven't seen 1384 in recent years, so I wouldn't know. But maybe from the way you describe it, that does count.

That's one of the classic episodes in the 10-episode pre-79 set available through Amazon.  Worth every penny, in my world.

With episode number/year in parentheses or brackets:

Two operas ("Otherland" [1425/1975] and "Potato Bugs" [1300/1973]), the variety show (1281/1973), the goldfish dying (1101/1970), two episodes with Chrissy Thompson (1324/1973 and 1389/1974), the "Is Santa Claus Real" episode (1261/1973), an episode where Fred shows a film of himself as a young boy (1271/1973), and the "What Is Love?" episode (1309/1973).

Note:  As far as I can tell these are "instant video" only--they're not available as actual DVDs.

the original "What is Love?" script (written I think by Betsy Nadas Seaman - Mrs. McFeeley) was much better than the re-write of that program. Or maybe the first one was by Fred & the rewrite by Betsy.  I don't know where the original one is, but that was, imho, THE One.
