Misterogers (CBC, 1/6/1964)

Network: Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
Air Date: January 6, 1964

Mister Rogers opens by showing a model windmill and mentioning that he has never been inside a windmill. Speaking to viewers, he hopes they like him either way. He then sings I Like You As You Are.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Mr. Zoogle, a construction engineer, visits the Frogg pond to collect some water for mixing paint to be used on a windmill being prepared for Cornflake S. Pecially. Having gathered some water, Mr. Zoogle returns to the Rockit factory. As he passes by the Eiffel Tower, Grandpere is singing It Makes Handsome. Mr. Zoogle shares with Grandpere that Collette has requested he make a yellow windmill.

At the factory, Mr. Zoogle shows viewers the windmill he made for Corney from a milk carton and pinwheel. Mr. Zoogle makes a second windmill and sings What Would You Like To Do Today.

Lady Elaine Fairchilde arrives at the factory and mentions that she is planning a benefit -- a "fun fair" -- and requests the assistance of Mr. Zoogle.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers encourages viewers to make a model windmill of their own and concludes by singing Tomorrow.


Daniel Striped Tiger appears inside the factory with Corney during the closing credits.
