THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

Episode 0037

Episode 0037
Topic N/A
Air Date April 9, 1968

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.


Notes

  • As Peggy Lipshutz creates her artwork, the other guests perform several songs including John Henry, I Will Give My Love an Apple, and This Land is Your Land.
  • According to the summary of Episode 37 found on the University of Pittsburgh Library's online catalog, Mister Rogers "talks about how he is sometimes angered by Mr. McFeely's smoking."

Mr. McFeely does indeed appear in this episode and the rest of the description from the Pitt library is accurate; however, there is nothing in the episode that suggests that Mr. McFeely is a smoker. According to a reliable source from the Fred Rogers Company, Mr. McFeely never smoked and no mention was ever made of him smoking, this was clearly something added (for whatever reason) by the person documenting this episode at Pitt, and (according to Pitt) this information is part of a permanent database and cannot be edited.
