|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a basket containing model toys of a giraffe, an elephant, and a tiger. Mr. McFeely stops by to join Mister Rogers on a visit to the Neighborhood Wild Animal Park.
At the park, Mister Rogers and Mr. McFeely look at birds and tigers while Mister Rogers uses his camera to take several pictures of animals and people. When Mr. McFeely has to leave, Mister Rogers is introduced to Dr. Joan Embery who continues by showing and talking about more animals including a giraffe. Mister Rogers even gets the opportunity to see the giraffes up close.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Queen Sara compliments Chef Brockett on a vegetable tray he has made and mentions her friend Princess Zelda who enjoys making plays. Chef Brockett learns that Princess Zelda would like him to play the part of bulldog in her newest production. Lady Aberlin mentions that Princess Zelda is also looking for someone to play the part of a giraffe with a short neck -- a part Chef Brockett feels would be perfect for Lady Aberlin.
Lady Aberlin visits the clock and learns that Daniel has been reading a lot about tigers. He is somewhat insecure about the fact that he is timid -- unlike most tigers. Lady Aberlin reassures Daniel by complimenting him for being an "advanced breed" and sings I'm Glad You're the Way You Are (a modified version of I'm Glad I'm the Way I Am).
Back at the house, Mister Rogers concludes by singing this same song.
