THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

Episode 1723

Episode 1723
Topic Giving and Receiving
Air Date February 18, 1998

Mister Rogers arrives with a children's plastic potty which he takes to his bathroom and compares to the adult sized toilet. Sitting at the toilet, Mister Rogers reads The Potty Book -- a book about children who are learning to use the potty. He spends some time remembering when he was a boy how he used to drop pennies into a bucket while sitting at the toilet. After looking at the various drains in the bathroom, Mister Rogers sings You Can Never Go Down the Drain.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Prince Tuesday has come up with a game using a bucket but has had his feelings hurt when his father was not impressed. Prince Tuesday climbs atop castle to demonstrate the game for Lady Aberlin but is interrupted by the arrival of King Friday. The King emphasizes his opinion that Prince Tuesday should not be involved in such "foolishness."

At the Museum-Go-Round, Betty Okonak Templeton is concerned as she has not seen Lady Elaine for three days. Robert Troll agrees to help her search the museum while Lady Aberlin plans to inform those at the castle.

Back at the house, Mr. McFeely stops by with a videotape about how people make toilets.
