|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a handful of balloons used for sculpting. Bruce Franco is outside making balloon sculptures and has placed a variety of animal sculptures around the yard. Using one of Mister Rogers' balloons, Mr. Franco creates an elephant sculpture.
Before Mister Rogers can go back inside, Mr. McFeely stops by with a video about a hot-air balloon ride that he took with Maggie Stewart compliments of pilot Fred Eiller. Before Mr. McFeely leaves, Mister Rogers generously gives him some of the balloon sculptures left behind by Mr. Franco.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin is still searching for the royal pets and allows Grandpere to use her binoculars. He sees little birds riding in a balloon but they are gone by the time Lady Aberlin can look.
Moving on, Lady Aberlin finds Neighbor Aber who has been equally unsuccessful in finding the birds. At the Museum-Go-Round, Neighbor Aber goes inside to try again at fixing the museum elevator. Mayor Maggie calls on the radio to tell everyone to be on the lookout for Robert Troll who was last seen with the birds. Neighbor Aber comes out and announces that the elevator is not working on the inside of the Musuem-Go-Round.
Robert Troll passes by with the birds in hand as everyone is called to the castle by King Friday. Robert Troll shares that the birds can do a balloon dance as everyone goes to the B.D. Room for further festivities.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings You Are Special.
