|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a guitar in a case which he is keeping for a friend while she moves. He talks about moving being a busy time and warms a can of soup to give to his friend, Mrs. Saunders. As the soup warms on the stove, Mister Rogers sings You Are Special.
Mrs. Saunders stops by to pick up her guitar and spends a few moments playing and singing with Mister Rogers. After singing a folk song and putting away her guitar, Mrs. Saunders sings Where is Thumkin.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday XIII is unhappy about the noise made by Robert Troll as he plays. Elsie Jean Platypus asks Robert Troll to help her organize a few rug samples she is considering for some decorating work at the castle. Robert Troll is not interested in the rugs and is encouraged by Elsie Jean to make his own fun.
Setting off through the Neighborhood, Robert Troll stops at the factory where Corney catches his bothering the dials on the outside of the factory. Unhappy with the intrusion and concerned with general safety, Corney instructs Robert Troll to find some place else to play.
When he discovers that Henrietta Pussycat and X the Owl are unavailable to play, Robert Troll moves on to the Platypus mound where Dr. Bill invites him to come along on a trip to Someplace Else. After Dr. Bill sings To Go To Someplace Else, he and Robert Troll move along to Someplace Else where Donkey Hodie is feeling lonely. Dr. Bill plays his bagpipes while Robert Troll starts a game of "troll ball." Noisy or not, Donkey Hodie is happy to have some company.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers plays troll ball -- a game of catch using an imaginary ball. He concludes by singing You Are Special.
