|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a film about eggs hatching. Using a plastic hen and rooster, he explains that there "has to be a rooster around for the egg to be the kind of egg that hatches into a chicken." After watching the film, Mister Rogers sings I'd Like to Be Like Mom and Dad over a film about parents and their children.
Chef Brockett stops by and shows Mister Rogers how to make donuts.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Chef Brockett delivers donuts to Dr. Bill Platypus and Digger Digorum as he learns that a baby platypus is on its way. Meanwhile, at the castle, King Friday is none too pleased with the idea that his baby will not be the first in the Neighborhood. He declares that the Platypus family must leave the Neighborhood of Make-Believe until after the royal baby is born.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers and Chef Brockett enjoy a glass of milk and a fresh donut.
