|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a blueprint of a playground. Taking viewers to the "newly built Neighborhood playground," Mister Rogers meets Bob Leathers, a contractor working on the playground. Mr. Leathers describes and demonstrates several pieces of the elaborate new play equipment.
Returning to the house, Mister Rogers sits at the piano and works on a new song he has been thinking about.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, X the Owl has made a cloud cover for his door thinking that the flying rocking horse might land on it. Still stumped on how to get the flying rocking horse down, Neighbor Aber seeks out the advice of Cornflake S. Pecially. Corney tells Neighbor Aber that the only way to get it down is to find someone who is brave and does not know that they are brave. That person is to call out to the flying chair, "81351, you've had your fun, but now you're done. Come on down right away."
At the Platypus Mound, Ana is building a playground and suggests that Daniel Tiger may be the person that Neighbor Aber is looking for. Heading to the clock, Daniel shares that he does not feel brave but Neighbor Aber convinces him otherwise through a song, Are You Brave. Feeling brave, Daniel instructs the rocking horse to come down out of the air.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers also sings Are You Brave.
