THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

Episode 1516

Episode 1516
Topic Day Care & Night Care
Air Date April 25, 1983

Mister Rogers arrives with the materials needed to make a latch-hook rug which he has borrowed from Chef Brockett. He demonstrates the latch hook before returning the supplies.

At Brockett's Bakery, Chef Brockett has a display of various kinds of rugs which he and Mister Rogers look at in detail. Mr. McFeely stops by the bakery to pick up a delivery which needs to be taken to a local daycare provider.

Mister Rogers joins Mr. McFeely on his delivery where they meet Mrs. Beasley and the children she cares for. They observe as Mrs. Beasley allows the children to play before providing them with a snack. Returning to his house, Mister Rogers talks about why children need to go to day care sometimes.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Mr. McFeely delivers the royal rug to the castle. King Friday and Queen Sarah receive an invitation to teach a class at the Royal School of Castle Managment. This requires them to leave for a few days but Prince Tuesday does not want a babysitter. Meanwhile, X the Owl is excitedly awaiting the delivery of his lessons from the Owl Correspondence School.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings I'm Proud of You before wrapping up for the day.


Notes

  • It appears that the special of the day at Brockett's Bakery is refried bean tacos.
  • Visiting the daycare provider, Mister Rogers may have noticed a familiar poster on the wall.
