|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers has sent away for a set of nursery rhyme posters which have finally arrived. As he shares the posters with viewers, Mister Rogers begins to question why there are no characters on the posters and comes across the following note:
"Dear nursery rhyme fan:
Clearly disappointed, Mister Rogers expresses his annoyance but then tries to make something positive of the situation by pretending that the characters are on the posters.
A phone call from Betty Aberlin brings an invitation for Mister Rogers to come to Betty's Little Theater to watch some children act out nursery rhymes.
On his way back to the house, Mister Rogers runs across Mr. McFeely who loans him a poster of the Neighborhood of Make-Believe. Mister Rogers uses the poster to lead into a very short time of make-believe where King Friday is pretending to be Old King Cole.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers is visited by violinist Fritz Siegal who demonstrates his fiddling talents. Concluding for the day, Mister Rogers sings I'm Proud of You.
