THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

Episode 1357

Episode 1357
Topic N/A
Air Date April 2, 1974

The McFeelys are taking care of an owl for some friends so Mister Rogers has stopped at the library for a record of owl sounds. He arrives with the record and listens to several of the owl sounds on the recording. At the McFeelys' house, Mister Rogers learns about the young bird before watching a film about different kinds of owls.

Returning to the house, Mister Rogers reads a story -- The Owl and the Pussycat.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Henrietta Pussycat and X the Owl are playing a game when Paul and Pauline Purple arrive looking for Purple Panda. Wearing new red sashes, they share that they are allowed to be different even though they look alike. Dissappearing for just a second, Paul and Pauline return having talked with Purple Panda who would like to stay with the circus.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about how people can share the same name but still be very different people. He concludes by singing You Are You.


Notes

  • The owl being cared for by the McFeelys is named Samantha.
  • The Owl and the Pussycat is a story/poem written by Edward Lear in 1871.
  • Purple Panda is with the circus -- more specifically, according to X the Owl, the Zookeeni Brothers Circus.
