|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with eight pictures slides of trees. Using Picture-Picture, Mister Rogers shares these images with viewers and talks about different kinds of trees. Afterwards, Mister Rogers spends some more time thinking about trees by showing a short film on the subject. The film leads into Everything Grows Together.
Mr. McFeely delivers a package from Bob Trow containing a new piece from the Neighborhood of Make-Believe model set. Before opening the package, Mister Rogers invites Mr. McFeely to the kitchen to enjoy a snack -- a piece of fruit that comes from a tree. Inside the package, Mister Rogers finds a model of X and Henrietta's tree.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, X the Owl wishes for a big round orange and is surprised when Mr. McFeely is there to give him one. X begins to worry that all of his wishes will start to come true as he sings Wishes Don't Make Things Come True; however, Lady Aberlin is there to teach him that wishes do not make things come true.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings his own version of Wishes Don't Make Things Come True.
