|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a cornet which he says he is trying to learn how to play. After playing a few notes, Mister Rogers sits at his piano where he is a little more comfortable playing music. Just for fun, he makes an attempt to play both at the same time.
Mr. McFeely stops by and invites Mister Rogers to come along with him on a visit to a place where mushrooms are grown. He brings his cornet along to see what it sound like to be played in a cave.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday sees Lady Aberlin pretending to be a growing mushroom and Purple Panda pretending to swim. Officer Clemmons returns and informs King Friday that Lady Elaine will not return until the no-play rule is changed. The importance of play finally starts to sink in with King Friday when he realizes the his fanfair cannot be played if play is not allowed. As a result, King Friday has a change of heart and announces that "there will be play again!"
Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about the importance of admitting your mistakes and sings Sometimes People are Good.
