|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a suitcase full of dolls -- several babies, a clown, and a Raggedy Ann. Using a paper napkin, Mister Rogers makes a skirt for the Raggedy Ann doll before singing Sometimes People Are Good.
Lady Aberlin stops by with a doll with a blank face. Mister Rogers gives her a marker to draw a face on the doll which she is planning to take to King Friday. The King has been unhappy lately so Lady Aberlin is sure to draw a big smile on the doll's face.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Dr. Marchl talks with Corney about his new factory and how his neighbors helped him after the fire. After Corney sings I'm a Man Who Manufactures, Dr. Marchl moves on to the Frogg pond where he talks with Mrs. Frogg about Tadpole who she feels is growing up too fast. Dr. Marchl helps her to realize that it is her good parenting that is helping Tad to grow.
At the castle, Lady Aberlin delivers the doll and cup custard to King Friday. She brings greetings from many friends in other neighborhoods before King Friday gladly accepts her gifts. When King Friday takes the custard inside to the C room, Edgar Cooke and Lady Aberlin realize that the King is unhappy because he misses Sara Saturday. Together they sing I'm Missing Someone Badly.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers shares a doll made from paper by some young neighbors. Making a shirt for the doll out of a paper napkin, Mister Rogers sings I'm a Man Who Manufactures.
