THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

Episode 1444

Episode 1444
Topic N/A
Air Date May 1, 1975

Mister Rogers arrives with a film about a caterpillar becoming a butterfly which he shares with viewers. From a book, he shows pictures of butterflies from many different regions.

Sylvia Bubalo stops by and invites Mister Rogers to join her at Elsie Neal's Craft Shop where some of her artwork is on display. He watches as Ms. Bubalo makes greeting cards.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, a butterfly appears looking for Lady Elaine Fairchilde. Lady Elaine wants to see the butterfly go back into a cocoon and become a caterpillar again. Lady Aberlin explains to her that a butterfly can never be a caterpillar again but an MGR-TV program about a butterfly would be interesting, as well. Meanwhile, Mr. McFeely's quest continues unsuccessfully at Someplace Else.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers explains that a grown person cannot become a child again. He concludes by singing Please Don't Think It's Funny.
