THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

Episode 0011

Episode 0011
Topic N/A
Air Date March 4, 1968
Guests Jamie Rogers

Mister Rogers arrives with a can of dry oatmeal and asks Picture Picture to show a film about how oatmeal is made. Taking the oatmeal to the kitchen, Mister Rogers cooks it on the stove as he sings You're Growing.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Mime Walker is at the castle performing for King Friday. He moves on to the oak tree where X the Owl has agreed to teach Henrietta Pussycat about bird watching. At Henrietta's request, Mime Walker pretends to be a cat. When X asks him to be a bird, Mime Walker is somewhat confused and has to be taught about gold finches. After a quick bird lesson, Mime Walker is able to mime the actions of a small bird.

When it comes time for X to meet Lady Elaine for some bird watching, Henrietta expresses her envy and is invited along.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings a bit of the children's song Little Bird Little Bird before his young friend Jamie stops by with some play clay. Together they take the clay to the kitchen where they mold it into a baseball diamond before wrapping up by singing Tomorrow.
