|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with two toy dinosaurs which he takes to the kitchen. Using the wooden block from yesterday to build a house, he shows that when dinosaurs were alive, they were very big. However, Mister Rogers goes on to talk about how dinosaurs are no longer around before he sings Did You Know.
Chef Brockett stops by for a brief visit to show Mister Rogers a vegetable treat he has made. The treat looks much like a cake decorated with a clown face, but the entire thing is made of vegetabels and cream cheese.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Purple Panda is dressed in a dinosaur costume waiting to carry out Lady Elaine's plan to scare her neighbors. At the tree, X the Owl talks to Ana Platypus about how he learned to fly. Pretending that her "super skirt" will allow her to fly as well, she takes a dive out of the tree only to be caught by Lady Aberlin just before hitting the ground. Lady Aberlin explains that it is very important to be safe when you are pretending and that we all have things we can do better than others. Meanwhile, at the clock, Daniel is fearful after spotting the "dinosaur."
Back at the house, Mister Rogers uses his coat to pretend that he is a dinosaur. He then returns to the kitchen where he uses a funnel to pour orange juice into a bottle. As he does so, he reminds viewers about being careful while playing.
Visiting the "Neighborhood Museum," Mister Rogers shows viewers the bones of real dinosaurs. He is given a tour of the exhibit by Dr. Mary Dawson.
Returning to the house, Mr. McFeely is waiting on the porch so he and Mister Rogers can finalize their plans for the next day. Inside, Mr. McFeely shows how his video camera works and talks about stories he made up as a child. He goes on to demonstrate a game he plays with his grandchildren where they offer pretend handshakes.
After saying goodbye and leaving the house, Mister Rogers is stopped outside by Chef Brockett who has made another special vegetable treat just for Mister Rogers.
