THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

Episode 0012

Episode 0012
Topic N/A
Air Date March 5, 1968
Guests Patricia Standley

Mister Rogers carefully enters carrying a toucan in a bird cage which has borrowed from the zoo. He offers the bird a banana and talks about its many features comparing it to a clown. Mister Rogers talks about children who act funny to try and make others laugh and sings The Clown in Me. Picture Picture shares several pictures of clowns and one of Mime Walker.

Jewel Walker stops by the house without his mime make-up on and goes to the kitchen to put it on. As Mr. Walker applies the make-up, Mister Rogers talks with him about how he became interested in becoming a mime. At the request of Mister Rogers, Mime Walker performs as though he is playing in a baseball game.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, X the Owl is at the Museum-Go-Round teaching Lady Elaine Fairchilde about birds. Lady Elaine is determined to find a toucan and thinks she sees one with a brass beak at the castle. As X points out, it's not a toucan but rather one of King Friday's musicians with a French horn.

X returns to the oak tree where Patricia Standley approaches with her instrument. Ms. Standley demonstrates her French horn and uses it to help him with his numbers. As she plays a sequence of notes, X counts along.

Mime Walker arrives at the tree where he and Ms. Standley say hello to each other in their own unique ways. After Ms. Standley departs for a music rehearsal, Mime Walker uses his own talents to help X learn more about numbers.

Back at the house, Ms. Standley is heard passing by outside on her way to rehearsal.
