|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a photograph of his ornathologist friend, David Ford. After pasting the picture into his Neighborhood photo album, Mister Rogers flips through the other pictures in the album as he sings You Are Special.
Visiting the Neighborhood aviary, Mister Rogers introduces Mr. Ford who shows a variety of birds. After they take a tray of food into one area, a toucan promptly comes in to eat.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday scolds his birds as they fail to meet his exercise expectations. After King Friday tells Queen Sara that he is "tired of everyone just doing nothing," Mayor Maggie stops by the castle and invites the birds to join her as she goes to the new "Museum of Love." Mimus Polyglottos agrees to go but Troglodytes Aedon opts to stay with the Queen.
At the Museum, Lady Elaine shares her new exhibit -- a viewer which shows a variety of things that she loves. Among the pictures seen are several pictures of Lady Elaine herself in various costumes. Mayor Maggie suggests that Lady Elaine produce and star in her own soap opera.
Robert Troll strolls by as he is bird-watching and agrees to be an usher in Lady Elaine's soap opera. At the tree, continuing his bird watching, Robert Troll shares this news with X the Owl before moving on to the castle. Pleased with the work of Robert Troll, King Friday is displeased with the fact that others are planning a soap opera.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers concludes by singing I'm Taking Care of You.
