|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with small chalk board. Taking out chalk and an eraser, he writes the word "Hi" and compares it to Picture Picture which is showing "Hello." Picture Picture changes to "Hi" and Mister Rogers writes "Hello" on the board. He draws two similar pictures and looks at their differences before singing You Are Special.
Visiting Brockett's Bakery, Mister Rogers meets the bakery's new employee -- Jose -- who is the cousin of Mrs. Shenk. Mrs. Shenk is on leave from the bakery as she is having a baby. In the kitchen, Chef Brockett is making personalized cakes -- round cakes with people's names written in frosting. While the frosting on Mister Rogers' cake sets, he and Chef Brockett go to the bakery's soda shop where they make a purple cow from grape juice, ice cream, and soda.
Returning to the house, Mister Rogers calls Mrs. Shenk to wish her the best. She says she will come back to the bakery part-time after the baby is born.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Edgar Cooke agrees to make a cake with Harriett Elizabeth Cow's name on it. When it is finished, everyone gathers at Someplace Else to welcome Harriett to the Neighborhood. As the cake is presented to Ms. Cow, milk pours from the sky and ruins the cake. While some wonder if Daniel's friend Malcolm Apricot Dinko is responsible, it is clearly the work of Lady Elaine Fairchilde dressed as a purple cow.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers gathers his cake and chalk board as he concludes for the day.
