THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

Episode 1447

Episode 1447
Topic N/A
Air Date May 6, 1975

Mister Rogers arrives with a counting book -- Numbers of Things -- which he shares with viewers. The acrobats in the book remind him of the gymnasts who are practicing in Marilyn Barnett's gym.

At the gym, Mister Rogers is introduced to a group of gymnasts who demonstrate their many talents and show the various pieces of equipment they use.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin spreads the word throughout the neighborhood that Friday is King Friday's birthday. Meanwhile, Lady Elaine Fairchilde has made hundreds of reproductions of the portrait drawn of her by Tony Bennett.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about birthdays and how it can be hard to image that grown-ups were once babies. He concludes by singing Everybody Has a History.
