|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a unique chair -- one that allows a person sit while resting on their knees. Seated at the chair, he sings You Are Special before Mr. McFeely arrives. Mr. McFeely tries out the new chair before he and Mister Rogers watch a film about how people make rocking horses. After the film, Mr. McFeely shows a rocking horse that was made at that factory -- one he will be taking to his grandchildren.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Neighbor Aber arrives at the Museum-Go-Round to help with the cover exhibit. Lady Elaine uses his assistance in hanging the plaid cover made by the Platypus family which fits over the pillars of the Museum-Go-Round. At the end of the cover are "words of peace" in various languages. Lady Elaine and Neighbor Aber also use a stack of three small pyramids as a ball cover on the Museum wall. Donated by the Frogg family in what Lady Elaine assumes is a hat but actually turns out to be a heart-shaped bell cover.
With a sleeping Carrie Dell on his back, James Michael Jones arrives to deliver his stool cover. Lady Elaine wonders what became of Corney's rocking chair and Neighbor Aber agrees to go find out. Before leaving, he sings a song about liking and caring for people.
At the factory, Neighbor Aber learns that the rocking chair cover was given to Lady Aberlin. He soon finds Henrietta constantly ringing her bell to keep the flying rocking horse nearby. Even by showing the rocking horse a picture of King Friday (at the suggestion of the King himself), Lady Aberlin and Neighbor Aber have no luck catching it. X comes up with the idea to make the flying horse part of an outdoor exhibit. Presenting this idea to Lady Elaine, she is very pleased and gives Neighbor Aber a cover -- a King Friday mask.
