Episode 0026
Topic N/A
Air Date March 25, 1968

Mister Rogers arrives with a baby doll which he has borrowed from a young friend. Using a handkerchief, he diapers the doll and talks about the excitement created by having a baby in the house. Mister Rogers then sings When a Baby Comes.

Mr. Swenson stops by with his five-month-old son, Eric. Mister Rogers watches as Mr. Swenson demonstrates how Eric has grown. They talk about teething and playing before the Swensons depart.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Tadpole Frogg is exercising at the fountain in an effort to grow faster. Nurse Miller arrives and measures him to find that he has grown 1/8 inch before she sings You're Growing.

Moving on to the tree, Nurse Miller shares a cranberry with X the Owl where X continues singing You're Growing. He gives Nurse Miller a walnut to deliver to Mister Rogers by way of the Trolley.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers receives the walnut and decides to save it for dinnertime. Picture Picture shares a film about a 14-month-old child -- Jamie Rogers when he was younger. Jamie Rogers himself stops by the house and sings Tomorrow with Mister Rogers as they conclude for the day.


Notes

  • Nurse Miller tells Tadpole Frogg that she has growth records for others in the Neighborhood including X the Owl and "Daniel Pussycat."
