|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Upon his arrival, Mister Rogers talks about pantomime and mentions that Marcel Marceau will be stopping by for a visit. Having brought with him a copy of the Marcel Marceau Counting Book, Mister Rogers looks forward to Mr. Marceau sharing the book. As he waits for Mr. Marceau's arrival, Mister Rogers shares a slow-motion film of animals gracefully moving about.
When Mr. Marceau arrives he shares his counting book with viewers before demonstrating his pantomime talents in various ways.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Mr. Marceau is at the Eiffel Tower visiting with Grandere. Together they go to the castle where they meet Queen Sara and prepare to meet the King.
In the castle's M Room, Handyman Negri finds King Friday and Henrietta Pussycat just back from an airplane ride. Grandpere and Queen Sara join them just before Marcel Marceau arrives in character as Bip. They all watch as Mr. Marceau performs Bip Chases Butterflies. After the performance, Mr. Marceau greets everyone in the castle garden and shows Henrietta that the butterflies in his performance were only pretend.
Back at the house, Mr. Maceau further demonstrates his art for Mister Rogers.
