|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers misbuttons his sweater when he arrives and promptly corrects his mistake. With him he has a model bicycle made by Mr. Trow which he looks at before Picture Picture shows a film about bicycles.
Running late with his bicycle in the repair shop, Mr. McFeely stops by with a model tricycle. Mister Rogers uses the models to explain the difference between "bi" and "tri."
At the bicycle repair shop, Mister Rogers visits with Mr. Davison who is working on Mr. McFeely's bike. After fixing a problem with the brakes and patching the front tire, the bicycle is ready to go just as Mr. McFeely arrives to pick it up. As Mister Rogers returns to his house, he sings Let's Be Together Today.
Bob Trow arrives just as Mister Rogers is setting up the Neighborhood of Make-Believe models. With the Bob Dog model in hand, Mr. Trow mentions that dogs are often afraid of wheels.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Bob Dog nervously walks through the neighborhood as he spots various wheels in motion. At the clock, he shares his fear with Daniel Striped Tiger who has a model bicycle. Adding to Bob Dog's anxiety, Mr. McFeely passes by on his own bicycle as he heads to the castle to deliver a baby carriage.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers and Bob Trow go out to the porch where they meet Jay Wik who demonstrates his unicycle. Concluding for the day, Mister Rogers sings You've Got To Do It.
