|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a small potted tree which he is looking after for Mr. McFeely. Taking the tree to the kitchen, he takes out an acorn and explains that an oak tree grows from an acorn. As a gift for Mr. McFeely, Mister Rogers draws a picture of the tree before he sings You're Growing. Mr. McFeely stops by to drop off another tree and Mister Rogers presents him with the picture. Back in the kitchen, he shows a pine seed as well.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Prince Tuesday is unhappy with his drawing of the Eiffel Tower. Mayor Maggie arrives at the castle and compliments Prince Tuesday on his artwork. Taking the picture to the Eiffel Tower, Mayor Maggie gives it to a very pleased Grandpere. He likes the picture so much that he plans to put it in a frame made also made by Prince Tuesday.
At the tree, Mayor Maggie visits with Henrietta and X who are awaiting the arrival of Cousin Mary Owl. X can hardly contain his excitement as they sing Tree Tree Tree. Upon her arrival, Cousin Mary shares that she has taken up videography through the Owl Correspondence School. With her camera in hand, she shows a film clip of the sycamore tree where she lives and also a video she recently made about trees. The end of the video includes a shot of the Owl Correspondence School.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about love of trees before singing Tree Tree Tree. Mr. McFeely returns to pick up his trees which he loads onto his colorfully decorated Speedy Delivery tricycle. Before leaving, Mr. McFeely shares a video about how people make adult tricylcles.
