|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a doll of himself made by a friend. After playing a few games with the doll, Mister Rogers explains that the doll cannot do anything by itself since it is not a live person. He recalls a time when he was a child and adults would pretend to "take his nose" or "take his ear" and how that made him uncomfortable. To emphasize the point that humans are all one piece, Mister Rogers sings Everything Grows Together.
Maggie Stewart stops by to invite Mister Rogers to the Sing-and-Sign at Brockett's Bakery. Before she leaves, she teaches Mister Rogers a portion of sign language for Everything Grows Together. Bob Trow also stops by and asks Mister Rogers to deliver a present to the singer at the bakery.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Queen Sara and Mayor Maggie are meeting about Food for the World when Robert Troll arrives at the castle with news that the Museum-Go-Round will not stop spinning. Lady Elaine Fairchilde blames Daniel's imaginary friend, Malcolm Apricot Dinko, for the spinning museum.
Neighbor Aber arrives and invites Mayor Maggie to join him for a picnic in Westwood with himself, Daniel, and Malcolm. Lady Elaine is caught red-handed as this invitation reveals that Malcolm has been in Westwood all day. Lady Elaine explains that she was responsible for the spinning museum and asks to be invited to the picnic.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers visits the Sing-and-Sign at Brockett's Bakery where Ella Jenkins is singing songs while Maggie Stewart communicates the lyrics in sign language. Ms. Jenkins opens the gift from Bob Trow to find a portrait of herself.
