Episode 1305

Air Date: April 20, 1973
Previous Episode: 1304
Next Episode: 1306

Mister Rogers arrives with a juicer which he will be delivering to Chef Brockett. After explaining how the juicer works, he goes to the kitchen where he shows a different way to extract fruit juice by using a squeezer. Using the squeezer, he makes fresh orange juice and grapefruit juice.

At Brockett's Bakery, Chef Brockett uses the juicer to make fresh carrot juice. He and Mister Rogers play a game in which Chef Brockett closes his eyes and recognizes various fruits and vegetables by touch.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers calls the McFeelys who are planning a trip to visit their grandchildren. He offers his help as they prepare to travel. Mrs. McFeely asks to borrow a suitcase and Mister Rogers agrees to bring it to them on Monday.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday does not think Queen Sara is feeling well enough to attend the concert being planned for her by others in the Neighborhood. It takes the recommendation of Dr. Crippens and Dr. Bill Platypus before King Friday accepts that Queen Sara -- although not fully recovered -- is feeling well enough to attend. Everyone gathers at the castle where they play music for the Queen in celebration of the fact that she is feeling better.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about how different people like different things when they are sick. As he cleans up the kitchen, he concludes by singing Just For Once.


The juicer Mister Rogers delivers to Chef Brockett is used again later in Episode 1338.
