|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a basket of fruit which he takes to the kitchen where he matches pieces that look the same. Looking at the differences between the different fruits, Mister Rogers sings Everybody's Fancy.
Mr. McFeely stops by with a battery operated steam shovel. He and Mister Rogers sit at the kitchen table and play with the steam shovel by picking up marbles from a plate. After Mr. McFeely leaves, Mister Rogers continues playing with the steam shovel on the floor.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Belive, Grandpere has a machine that can provide any item for a person when they ask for it in French. Dr. Marchl asks for several pieces of fruit which are quickly provided by the machine.
At the tree, Henrietta Pussycat talks to Dr. Marchl about how she sometimes wishes she could play rough like boys do. X the Owl sings I'm Taking Care of You with Henrietta as he expresses his desire to take part in quieter activities like girls often do. Dr. Marchl assures them that their feelings are perfectly normal and okay.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings I'm Taking Care of You before he cleans up the kitchen.
