Are You Brave and Don't Know It?

Format: VHS
Company/Organization: CBS/FOX Video, Time Life Video



Mister Rogers shows some ways that families and neighbors help each other be the best they can be. He visits his neighbor Bob Leathers, who is supervising the construction of a new school playground. The neighborhood children helped to design it, and their parents are working together to make it a reality.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, one of Cornflake S. Pecially's inventions has flown away and won't come back. Mr. Aber offers to help, and "Corney" explains that only a very courageous person can do the job. One of the neighbors who is very brave -- but doesn't know it -- saves the day.

Mister Rogers says the best thing about being brave is that when you try your best, that's good enough for anybody.

  • A playground with a boat, a castle and a dragon
