|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a toy elephant but doesn't have a chance to say much about it before taking a call from Joe Negri. At the Music Shop, Mr. Negri is giving guitar lessons to three boys who demonstrate their talents for Mister Rogers by playing Everybody's Fancy. They then play Many Ways to Say I Love You as Mister Rogers sings along.
Helena, an employee of Negri's Music Shop, takes a phone call from her son who is upset. Mr. Negri allows Helena to leave her job to attend to her son. In her absence, Mister Rogers stays at the shop to help out organize the display case. Using a melodica, he plays It's You I Like as Mr. Negri plays along on the guitar.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Handyman Negri is giving a guitar lesson to Prince Tuesday when King Friday arrives an announces that he will be visiting another neighborhood on a special work project. Almost immediately, Queen Sara mentions that an office employee of Food for the World is sick and her help is needed. Princess Zelda arrives and a clearly disappointed Prince Tuesday mentions that his mother and father are both away working. Looking for the elephant costume used in the Josephine play, Princess Zelda is directed towards the C room of the castle where she is amazed by all of the things there that start with C. When they find the costumes from the play, Handyman Negri and Princess Zelda put on the elephant heads and sing We Are Elephants. Not in much of a playful mood, Prince Tuesday expresses his anger at his parents' absence. Princess Zelda makes up a song called Nobody Likes It.
Back at Negri's Music Shop, Mr. Negri gives Mister Rogers a melodica as compensation for his help. Before Mister Rogers leaves, Mr. Negri mentions that Natasha, a famous oboist, will be visiting later in the week.
Returning to the house, Mister Rogers talks about the importance of expressing your true feelings when you're feeling angry.
