THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

Episode 1295

Episode 1295
Topic N/A
Air Date April 6, 1973
Guests Jim Dorsey
Lt. Col. Alfred Worden

Mister Rogers arrives with various stones -- a geode, an agate, and a flint. Taking them to the kitchen, he looks at what makes each one unique before using the stones to play a memory game with viewers.

At Bob Trow's workshop, Mister Rogers watches as Jim Dorsey, a lapidarian, shows many other precious stones from his own collection and demonstrates how stones are polished.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, it is Daniel Striped Tiger's birthday -- a celebration he has decided to share with Purple Panda who has no birthday. Astronaut Worden and Yoshi Ito agree to pilot King Friday's royal plane on a birthday trip to the moon and Planet Purple. Lady Elaine Fairchilde asks them to deliver a cake to the moon for the moon's birthday.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers shares some photos of Al Worden in his astronaut suit before offering ideas on how viewers might pretend they are in a rocket ship of their own. Lt. Col. Worden stops by with a moon rock to share.


Notes

  • Looking at the moon rock, Mister Rogers makes a humorous comparison: "It looks like a piece of sliced meatloaf."
