|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Upon his arrival, Mister Rogers heads straight to the kitchen where he shows the icebox cake which he made as a refreshment for the day's puppet show. Taking out a number of ingredients, Mister Rogers demonstrates how he made the cake.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin is taking a nap outside the castle when she is awakened by Edgar Cooke. Lady Elaine calls to the castle to ask that Lady Aberlin come to the MGR-TV studio where the world's smallest talking zebra will be appearing. Lady Aberlin is asked to find the world's smallest talking witch so the zebra and witch can talk on the air -- a first for television. Thanks to an idea from Daniel Striped Tiger, Lady Aberlin asks Henrietta to bring her witch puppet to the studio. Inside the MGR-TV studio, Lady Elaine is wrapping up a Fireside Chat when Lady Aberlin and Henrietta arrive. The talking zebra arrives and is eager to meet the talking witch; however, he is surprised to find that it is only a puppet.
Following Make-Believe, Mister Rogers leaves for the McFeely's where Chrissy and Terri will be performing their puppet show. A small crowd has gathered to watch the McFeely's granddaughters' show. Complete with music and a detailed plot, the girls put on quite a performance as they present their own version of the Princess and the Pea. After the show, Mister Rogers departs as the others enjoy the refreshments.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings I'm Proud of You.
