Guests Woody Straub

Mister Rogers arrives with a small houseplant which he takes to the kitchen and transplants into a larger pot. As he repots the plant, Mister Rogers talks about people moving and explains that sometimes there can be uneasy feelings that come about with moving to a new place. As he continues working, he sings Please Don't Think It's Funny.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Woody Straub is at the castle showing King Friday some pieces of antique furniture. Mr. Straub fixes a broken chair and talks about his hobby working with old furniture.

Meanwhile, X the Owl and Henrietta Pussycat join Lady Aberlin on a visit to deliver housewarming gifts to Donkey Hodie who has found his new home in Someplace Else. Upon their arrival, Mr. McFeely has just finished putting the final touches on Donkey Hodie's windmill. He graciously accepts the gifts from his Neighborhood friends including a rocking chair from Corney, a portrait of King Friday, and a song sung by X and Lady Aberlin.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings the same song as he cleans up the kitchen.

Notes

  • Donkey Hodie explains that he found Someplace Else as he was walking around following the King's orders to look for someplace else to build the windmill.
  • Henrietta Pussycat provides directions from the Neighborhood of Make-Believe to Someplace Else:

    "Meow meow turn meow. Meow meow turn another meow. Meow meow around the meow. Meow big sign says 'Someplace Else.'"

  • X the Owl decides that he would like to offer Donkey Hodie a "house cooling" gift instead of a house warming gift. Part of this gift includes a short song he sings with Lady Aberlin:

    We warm the house
    We cool the house
    We sit in the house
    We sleep in the house
    The house is someplace else

  • After a visit to the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, viewers get a close look at one of the Neighborhood pictures hung in Mister Rogers' kitchen.
