Communicating at a pace and tone that is comfortable for young children, Mister Rogers helps his television neighbors understand their feelings, respect others, feel valued, develop inner controls and appreciate the world around them.

Episode 1 - Friends

Mister Rogers visits a restaurant and is invited to talk with the chef. When Henrietta Pussycat and X the Owl have trouble cooperating, Lady Aberlin helps them work together and realize that friends should not be afraid of being upset with each other from time to time.
