|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Upon his arrival, Mister Rogers mentions that Chef Brockett and Mrs. McFeely will be making waffles at the McFeely's. After showing a list of ingredients, Mister Rogers takes viewers to the kitchen where he shows each of the individual items that are needed in order to make waffles. Making a quick call to the McFeely's to be sure Chef Brockett has arrived, Mister Rogers is asked to bring along some syrup. Out of syrup, Mister Rogers decides to bring strawberry jelly instead.
At the McFeely's, Chef Brockett prepares the waffle iron and adds some batter before he sings I'm a Chef. As the song finishes, so does the waffle. Mister Rogers cuts it into four pieces -- one Chef Brockett, one for Mrs. McFeely, one for himself, and one to save for Mr. McFeely. Peanut butter and jelly are the toppings of choice for Mister Rogers. As he takes his first bite, Mister Rogers pays compliment to Chef Brockett by singing a few lines of Good Feeling with a slight change to the lyrics: "It's such a good waffle. A very good waffle."
Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about the different things that might be used to top a waffle and alters yet another of his songs: "There are many ways, to top a waffle." He then shows a film of people making maple syrup.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Chef Brockett is at the castle with Edgar Cooke and some fresh waffles. Donkey Hodie and Harriett Elizabeth Cow have had a meeting with King Friday and the King has asked Chef Brockett and Edgar Cooke to make waffles for an upcoming event at Someplace Else. With maple syrup running low, Chef Brockett sets out to find some more. Sure enough, Lady Elaine Fairchilde is willing to help as she commits to having maple syrup ready for Someplace Else.
After make-believe, Mister Rogers uses a bottle and water to show the meaning of half-full, full, and empty before he sings Many Ways To Say I Love You.
