|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with some inkblot cards which he takes to the kitchen. Showing several examples, he talks about what the images look like. Using some food coloring and a blank piece of paper, Mister Rogers demonstrates how the inkblot images are made. He points out a spot of ink on his shirt and talks about people sometimes get angry about spots that need cleaned.
At Audrey Cleans Everything, John is receiving a new cleaning assignment from Barbara when Mister Rogers arrives for help with the ink spot on his shirt. Audrey comes out to assist Mister Rogers but finds that she is low on spot remover. Luckily, Mr. McFeely arrives with a delivery of cleaning supplies and Audrey is able to remove the stain with ease.
Returning to the house, Mister Rogers and Mr. McFeely watch a "calm and restful" film about wind blowing through the trees.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Barbara B. Frisbee and Handyman Negri are polling everyone in the Neighborhood to see what they think the giant frisbee is for. Some have wild guesses while others are still concerned with the possibility of a giant coming. After Barbara nearly lets the truth slip, X the Owl is able to guess that the giant frisbee is not a frisbee at all -- it is to be used as a tap dancing stage. Once the dancing begins, everyone is able to put their fears of a giant to rest.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers uses his fingers to dance on a real frisbee.
