|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a toy raft made out of straws by a young friend. Putting on a sailing jacket, he takes the raft to a tub of water in the kitchen. Using a battery powered fan, Mister Rogers is able to move the raft in the water before adding a toy sailboat and other toys to the fun.
Scientist Alder stops by with an anemometer which he is using to check wind velocities around the Neighborhood on behalf of Donkey Hodie.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Scientist Alder continues checking wind speeds to help Donkey Hodie as he looks for an ideal place to build a windmill. After checking wind speeds throughout the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Scientist Alder determines that the best location for a windmill is behind the castle. Unfortunately, King Friday says that he likes his privacy and there is no royal land available.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers demonstrates an electric fan and suggests that there are some things that only grown-ups are allowed to use. After singing Parents Were Little Once Too, he concludes by demonstrating different kinds of fans.
