|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with the materials needed for painting with watercolors. Standing at an easel, he creates a simple painting of a house before Mr. McFeely delivers a guitar. The guitar will be played later when Peggy Lipschutz and Vivien Richman stop by for a visit. Mr. McFeely checks the kitchen to be sure the large easel he put up earlier is still in place.
After Mr. McFeely leaves, Mister Rogers talks about how he'd like him to stay and visit sometimes instead of rushing off. Emphasizing the importance of being with other people, Mister Rogers sings Let's Be Together Today.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Daniel Striped Tiger and X the Owl are inside the castle exercising with Coach Saunders who talks to them about the importance of practice and physical fitness.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers attempts one of Coach Saunders' exercises as he sings a few words of Be Brave Be Strong. On the porch, he finds two pieces of chalk just in time for Peggy Lipshutz and Vivien Richman to arrive. Joe Davidson and Charles Cubolic play music along with Mrs. Richman as Mrs. Lipshutz creates chalk drawings. Mr. McFeely returns with a plane ticket for Mrs. Lipshutz and enjoys one final performance by the guests.
