|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with an easel, drawing supplies, and a record or the Brahms piece played by Mrs. Standley earlier in the week. As the music plays, Mister Rogers expresses himself by creating a crayon drawing on paper.
Mr. McFeely stops by with a baby chimpanzee named Honey. According to Mr. McFeely, Honey has been misbehaving at the zoo and the zookeeper requested he be brought to Mister Rogers. After Mr. McFeely rushes off, Mister Rogers holds Honey and sings I Like You As You Are.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Edgar Cooke watches as Professor Fitzpatrick is at the castle drawing a picture of a monkey. King Friday arrives and requests to keep the drawing for his M Room because the monkey in the picture is "bigger than the one Mister Rogers had." Professor Fitzpatrick shares a painting by Seurat with King Friday and describes the pointilist style. At his easel, Professor Fitzpatrick sketches a similar image before he is invited for tea in the castle's T Room (down the hall from the S Room).
Back at the house, Mister Rogers gives Honey a banana before Jordeen Ivanov stops by for a visit. Ms. Ivanov discusses her dance classes and demonstrates various ballet positions and techniques. Together, she and Mister Rogers share a film of her peforming a swan ballet.
