|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a bag that contains three different noise-makers. After demonstrating each of them, he asks viewers to think about what a quiet-maker might look like. Taking out a tape recorder, he records the sound of one of the noise-makers and plays it back. Playing a separate tape, Mister Rogers shares other sounds such as a bird, a car, and a bell. As the tape plays, he whispers what the sounds are for any viewers who may not be able to hear well.
Chuck Aber stops by dressed to participate in a marching band. Mr. Aber borrows one of the noise-makers and before he leaves, he sings and signs It's the Style to Wear a Smile.
Mister Rogers plays some parade music on his piano before talking about something quiet -- smiles. He shares a picture book about smiles featuring the smiling faces of several of his neighbors.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Neighbor Aber places a costume on top of the Trolley so it can participate in the upcoming parade. Prince Tuesday is using a tape recorder to collect comforting messages for X the Owl and Henrietta Pussycat in hopes of drawing them out for the parade. Lady Aberlin asks Lady Elaine Fairchilde to play the tape for X and Henrietta who are still hiding out in the Museum-Go-Round's S Room (S for "scared" and "safe"). While she waits for Lady Elaine, Lady Aberlin is joined by Neighbor Aber in singing Let's Think of Something to Do.
After listening to the recorded messages, X and Henrietta realize that what they were fearing were nothing more than some of their neighbors wearing costumes. Everyone gathers outside the castle to start the parade.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers plays some parade music on the piano before enjoying some quiet time. Marilyn Barnett stops by for some exercises.
