|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a bag of groceries which he takes to the kitchen. After shelling a peanut, he asks Picture Picture to share a film about the growing and gathering of peanuts. He then sings I'm Interested in Things as he puts away the groceries.
At Bob Trow's workshop, Mister Rogers sees a full-size cardboard cut-out of himself. Mr. Trow has also created cut-outs of Betty Aberlin, Audrey Roth, Mr. McFeely, Chef Brockett, Joe Negri, and Reardon. When they place a false mustache on the cut-out of Reardon, Mr. Trow suggests that he looks like an organ grinder.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Reardon is dressed as an organ grinder and is carrying a live monkey named Elizabeth. The false mustache he is wearing makes it difficult for those in Make-Believe to recognize him. After visiting with Daniel Striped Tiger and Miss Paulificate, Reardon releases Elizabeth to the factory while he talks with X the Owl and Henrietta Pussycat and plays with Ino A. Horse.
Back at the workshop, Mr. Trow has created a small cut-out of Ino A. Horse and shows a cut-out of himself dressed as a monkey.
Returning to the house, Mister Rogers makes peanut butter using butter and fresh peanuts.
