|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers has promised to write some music for the upcoming marionette performance at the Brown's theater. Sitting at the piano, he practices one song he has finished already and works on completing another.
Mr. McFeely stops by with a Funny Fast Film of Mister Rogers as he enters his house for a television visit.
At Brockett's Bakery, Chef Brockett is having a sale on anything that is round and Mister Rogers helps sort out the items that are round from those that are not. In the soda shop, Chef Brockett serves Mister Rogers a glass of lemonade and talks about how he drinks healthy drinks since he's been going to the gym. Chef Brockett demonstrates one of the exercises he does. Before leaving the bakery, Mister Rogers looks at some bells that Jose Cisneros is selling for some friends.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, X the Owl is concerned that King Friday "threw away" Prince Tuesday when the statue was broken. When Handyman Negri calls for Henrietta Pussycat, he finds that her bell has been broken -- an accident on the part of X and likely the reason for his concern. Handyman Negri fixes the bell and assures X that while some things come apart, people's bodies are all one piece. They all sing a slightly different "kitty" version of A Handy Lady and a Handy Man.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about the feelings that come about when things get broken. Touching on X's concerns, Mister Rogers concludes by singing Everything Grows Together.
