Previous Episode: 1065
Next Episode: 1067

Mister Rogers arrives and welcomes viewers back from the weekend. Going to the kitchen, Mister Rogers opens the box that he brought with him to reveal a model of Daniel Striped Tiger's clock. After singing Let's Be Together Today, Mister Rogers invites viewers along to visit with the creator of the model, Bob Trow.

At the workshop, Mr. Trow is putting the finishing touches on a model of King Friday's castle.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Robert Troll pays a visit to Daniel who is working on his clock. Robert Troll is frustrated with King Friday who left for a meeting and could no longer play. After his spirits are lifted a bit, Robert Troll makes up a short song about kings and castles. Moments later, Robert Troll makes an appointment, via the Neighborhood phone, to talk with King Friday. When they see each other, Robert Troll shares his new song with the King who is very pleased.

Back at the workshop, Mr. Trow finishes the castle and Mister Rogers returns home with the second piece of his Neighborhood of Make-Believe model set. Before leaving for the day, Mister Rogers talks about rhyming words.


After helping Daniel fix his clock, Robert Troll closes the face of the clock. Apparently the hinges were a bit loose as Robert Troll spends the next several seconds of dialogue holding the face of the clock shut.
