|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a hand-held sewing machine which he takes to the kitchen and demonstrates by sewing together two pieces of cloth. He talks about how clothing is made very differently today than it once was.
Visiting the Colonial Williamsburg Millinery Shop, Mister Rogers meets Janaye Whitaker who shares a variety of 18th century clothing. Mister Rogers gladly puts on a vest, a banyan, a three-cornered hat, and a wig.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Handyman Negri takes a phone call from Betty Okonak Templeton who asks if he knows a certain song. King Friday plans to relax the rule about three-cornered hats as soon as everyone in the Neighborhood is wearing a "three-cornered one." He repeats this rule to Betty Okonak Templeton over the phone. As King Friday and Miss Paulificate head to the T.M. Room to discuss telemarketing, Handyman Negri goes to the Museum-Go-Round.
At the Museum-Go-Round, Betty Templeton asks Handyman Negri to play a scarf version of My Hat It Has Three Corners. Mayor Maggie arrives just as Lady Elaine comes out wearing her scarf and then an 18th century wig, as well.
At the castle, Mayor Maggie informs King Friday that those in Westwood are planning to take off their three-cornered hats. Finding that Lady Elaine has complied with the rule of wearing a "three-cornered one" by wearing a three-cornered scarf, the rule is lifted.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about it can be difficult to work together when people feel that they are more important than others. He concludes by singing You Are Special and reading the book Hats Hats Hats.
