|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a long block of wood which he measures and cuts into six smaller pieces using a table saw in the back yard. Before cutting, he talks about being safe around such tools.
Taking the newly cut blocks inside, Mister Rogers uses sand paper to smooth the edges before stacking the blocks on the kitchen table. As he continues with the blocks, he sings Parents Were Little Once Too.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin cannot find anyone at their homes until she sees Lady Elaine Fairchilde at the Museum-Go-Round. Lady Elaine mentions that her restaurant has been moved from the rocket to the inside of the museum and is now called the Middle of the Museum Restaurant.
Meanwhile, at the Platypus mound, Dr. Bill is playing the bagpipes as X the Owl and Henrietta Pussycat dance about. They are taking a break as everyone is inside the mound with Elsie Jean Platypus waiting for the new egg to hatch. As various neighbors emerge from the mound, Lady Aberlin talks with them about being patient as they wait.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers has drawn Daniel's clock on one of the blocks before Betty Aberlin stops by with a kitten named Daniel. Mister Rogers concludes by singing more of Parents Were Little Once Too.
