|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
After feeding the fish, Mister Rogers sits at the kitchen table with some extra spoons he got from the ice cream shop. Based on the idea of a young friend, Mister Rogers uses a marker to make puppets out of the spoons including one that looks like Cornflake S. Pecially.
In the Neighorhood of Make-Believe, Corney is singing I'm a Man Who Manufactures as Lady Aberlin arrives at the factory. Having forgotten to comb her hair, Lady Aberlin has been turned away from the castle by King Friday. Together with Corney, she sings Sometimes Isn't Always before they come up with the idea to create a rocking chair that combs a person's hair when they sit in it.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers visits Bob Trow's workshop where Mr. Trow has just completed the model of Corney's factory.
Returning to the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Elaine comes to the factory to buy 111 hair chairs to put in her new pie restaurant.
Still at Mr. Trow's workshop, Mister Rogesr watches as Mr. Trow makes a small chair out of wooden spoons and a paper cup. He takes the model factory with him as he returns to his television house where he sits with the rest of the models and sings You Are Special. He concludes for the day by showing a film about children making mud pies.
