Mister Rogers arrives with a few different kinds of kites -- a few of which he assmbles on the floor. As he works, he sings I Like to Take My Time. Mister Rogers then remembers a time he flew a kite near the ocean and talks about how flying a kite can sometimes be frustrating.

At Negri's Music Shop, Mister Rogers is introduced to Richard Kvistad -- a percussionist who demonstrates a kettle drum. When Audrey Roth arrives to clean the shop, she joins in by using her garbage can as a drum of her own.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Elaine Fairchilde and Bob Dog wonder if grown-ups ever get scared. They meet at the castle where they use a kite that resembles a witch to frighten King Friday. Upset with Bob Dog and Lady Elaine, King Friday explains that grown-ups have feelings, too.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings a variation of Sometimes People Are Good.

Notes

  • As the episode transitions to and from Negri's Music Shop, I Like to Take My Time plays in the background.
  • Before Make-Believe, Mister Rogers compares the Trolley whistle to a crow-call he purchased at Negri's Music Shop. The crow call was used again later in Episode 1192.
  • Following Make-Believe, Mister Rogers sings a "sometimes people get scared..." version of Sometimes People Are Good.
  • Richard Kvistad is the Principal Percussionist and Associate Timpanist of the San Francisco Opera Orchestra. He formerly held the same position with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, where he performed as soloist.[1]
