|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Upon his arrival, Mister Rogers heads to his bathroom where there is a mirror. Looking into the mirror, he talks about how each and every person is an individuial -- there are no two people who are the same. After singing You Are Special, Mister Rogers explains the meaning of the word "unique."
Maggie Stewart calls and invites Mister Rogers to her home where she and Chef Brockett are making bread pudding for an upcoming family reunion. With the leftover pieces of bread, Chef Brockett uses a jar to cut our circles. Ms. Stewart adds a layer of peanut butter and Mister Rogers finishes it up with a layer of raisins and walnuts.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Chef Brockett is taking an order from Queen Sara for a birthday cake for Corney. Prince Tuesday shares with Chef Brockett his displeasure with what he sees in the mirror and hurries off as King Friday appears. The King takes notice of Prince Tuesday's mirror in Chef Brockett's hand and asks for it to be held so he can see his royal reflection. As he gazes into the mirror, King Friday imagines himself as a dancer. Chef Brockett asks King Friday to help him build the self esteem of Prince Tuesday. As they leave, Robert Troll arrives to find Chef Brockett's sketch of the cake planned for Corney. Seeing Corney's name on the sketch, Robert Troll assumes that the drawing belongs at the factory.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers thinks about people looking at themselves in the mirror. He concludes for the day by sharing a video about how people make dinner plates.
