|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers mentions that he has been thinking about an old car that his grandparents had when he was younger. Showing a picture of the car that he brough with him, Mister Rogers shares a video to remembers a time when he drove a similar car. He also mentions that his grandparents often read to him which he believes is the reason he enjoys books so much. Mister Rogers then looks at a picture book about tools before singing Did You Know.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Collette talks with Officer Clemmons about her hobby -- taking pictures of jungle animals. Officer Clemmons sings Then Your Heart is Full of Love which demonstrates his hobby of singing. At the castle, Neighbor Aber sings a protion of the song with Officer Clemmons as Collette boards the Trolley for a trip to the school at Someplace Else.
At the school, the children welcome Collette and Neighbor Aber with a song. When Collette reponds with a welcome in French, the children sing her words in a song. Collette shares her photographs of jungle animals and Neighbor Aber shows a film about farm animals. Throughout both presentations, Daniel questions the idea of grandparents until Neighbor Aber assures him of the fact that everyone has two sets of grandparents -- even if a person has never seen them.
At the castle, King Friday is on the phone with Reardon and is commissioning a new opera. Neighbor Aber and Collette offer the idea of having an opera about someone who wants a grandfather very much.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about memories of his own grandparents before he recalls a gift he once made for them -- a paper picture frame in the shape of a heart. In the kitchen, he uses a piece of construction paper to recreate the gift. Mister Rogers concludes by singing Then Your Heart is Full of Love.
