|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a baton which he has borrowed from Marilyn Barnett. He talks about parades and how he used to make up his own when he was younger. Sitting at his piano, Mister Rogers plays some marching music.
Marilyn Barnett and her friend Lisa Lamolinara stop by outside to demonstrate some baton movements. After a short lesson for Mister Rogers, Lisa shares her full talents by performing a baton routine.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin and Handyman Negri are following the King's orders as soldiers walking throughout the Neighborhood and making sure everyone is staying near.
With everyone inside their homes, King Friday begins to realize that his Neighbors are not happy. Handyman Negri explains to the King that everyone likes living in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe and would want to stay even without a royal rule prohibiting them from leaving without permission.
King Friday asks that Handyman Negri and Lady Aberlin lead a parade to help bring some life back to the Neighborhood. Still, no one comes out of their homes which convinces King Friday that he has made a bad rule. He orders a singing telegram to be sung by Edgar Cooke to all of the Neighbors informing them that the ban on travel has been lifted.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about how it is important to know the whereabouts of their children. He sings I'm Taking Care of You just before a visit from Mrs. McFeely. She shares a film about her bookmobile before Mr. McFeely stops by looking for a book. Mister Rogers concludes by sharing from a book left with him by Mrs. McFeely -- When We Were Very Young by A.A. Milne.
