Mister Rogers' Neighborhood - Episode 1029

Original Air Date: March 20, 1969


Mister Rogers arrives with a suitcase full of over-sized clothing. He tries on various pieces of clothing and talks about dressing up in his parents old clothes when he was a boy. Before a short film of children playing dress-up, Mister Rogers sings I Like You As You Are as continues trying on various pieces of clothing.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin is talking to Corny about the return of King Friday and Queen Sara when Mr. McFeely passes through the Neighborhood. Lady Aberlin places an "order" with him -- that he should "have a good day."

Moving on to the Museum-Go-Round, Lady Aberlin finds Lady Elaine Fairchilde struggling to untie a knot around a package. With Lady Aberlin's assistance, the knot is untied and the package is opened. Inside the box is a Queen Sara Saturday costume which Lady Elaine suggests should be worn by Lady Aberlin.

As Lady Aberlin puts on the costume, Joey Hollingsworth returns wearing a full King Friday costume. Together, they dance across the Neighborhood to the tree where X the Owl and Henrietta Pussycat are surprised to find that they are not the real King and Queen.

Back at the house, Mr. McFeely stops by with a collection of masks which he and Mister Rogers try on. Among the masks of famous people are masks of both Mister Rogers and Mr. McFeely. Mister Rogers concludes by singing You Are Special.

I just noticed that the Trolley has a flower where the headlight is. Was it in any previous episodes this week?
