|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers has come from Chef Brockett's and arrives with the supplies needed to decorate some donuts for his chef friend. After he shows the cutter used to make the donut shapes, he talks about cooking at home. Mister Rogers sings I'd Like To Be Like Mom and Dad before he watches a film about a time he visited the Jethro Coffin House with his son John.
During the film, Mr. McFeely has arrived with the donuts from Brockett's. Together they use the supplies brought by Mister Rogers to decorate chocolate, powdered sugar, and regular sugar donuts. As they work, they remain quiet to respect the kitchen rules of Chef Brockett. When they are finished, Mister Rogers and Mr. McFeely enjoy a donut with a glass of milk.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Joey Hollingsworth dances his way back into the Neighborhood with a long list of Rockit orders for Corney. Chef Brockett welcomes him back with the box of donuts decorated by Mister Rogers and Mr. McFeely. Mr. Hollingsworth gives Chef Brockett a magic recipe from Shangri-La for peanut butter cookies -- Chef Brockett's favorite. Dancing his way to the factory, Mr. Hollingsworth delivers the new orders to Corney.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers cleans up the kitchen and talks about how magic recipes are not real. He tries the magic recipe for peanut butter cookies but nothing happens. This kind of magic only works in Make-Believe.
