|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a stick from a root beer popsicle he has just finished as well as a box full of art projects made from popsicle sticks. After thinking about children creating art with popsicle sticks, Mister Rogers takes out the dough he made last week and molds it as he sings Children Can. Bob Trow stops by and joins Mister Rogers by making Daniel Striped Tiger's clock out of clay and popsicle sticks.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, the Trolley delivers three popsicle sticks to Robert Troll and Daniel Striped Tiger which they pretend are drum sticks before using with a handkerchief to make a doll. Lady Elaine Fairchilde arrives and immediately starts poking Daniel and Robert Troll with a stick -- pretending to be a doctor. After Robert Troll and Daniel explain that doctors use tools to help and do not just go around poking children, Lady Elaine gives Robert Troll a pretend check-up.
Back at the house, explains that sticks do not move themselves -- they require people to move them. Using a television set that Bob Trow has made from clay and sticks, they watch a short animated film about popsicle sticks. After the film, Mister Rogers talks about different ways of talking and Bob Trow (in Robert Troll's voice) sings Troll Talk.
Mister Rogers concludes for the day by singing It's You I Like.
