  • Episode Description
  • Mister Rogers closes the curtains in his television house to resemble nighttime. It's the perfect backdrop for Mr. McFeely's delivery: a video on how people make flashlights. The Neighborhood of Make-Believe has a nighttime story of its own. Lady Elaine frightens X the Owl with talk of stars falling from the sky.

    • Mr. Rogers: When people are in their own rooms, they like to be private, and they like to be told if other people want to come in. In fact, it's very important to tell people if you are going to come and visit.

    • Daniel: I didn't know that stars would fall from way up in the sky.
      Lady Aberlin: I've never known a star to fall here, Daniel.
      Daniel: But Lady Elaine said that they do, and they might, and they could. I just don't want one to fall on my clock and make my clock fall over. And what if the moon should fall, too. I mean, the moon is so big.
      Lady Aberlin: Daniel, the moon is not going to fall, and a star is not going to make your clock fall over.

    • Lady Aberlin: I love the nighttime. I love to look at the stars and the moon and think about all the people I know and love and make up stories about all kinds of wonderful things.

    • Mr. Rogers: Rooms at night often look different from the way they look in the daytime.

    • Mr. Rogers: When you're curious about the people and world around you, that's one very fine way of learning. It's good to be curious. It is also good to know that everybody wants some time alone--some private time--once in a while. Everybody has some things that they just don't want to share--in the daytime, or the nighttime.

    Notes (1)

    • All credits change font from Helvetica to Bookman Old Style (which will remain into 1998). More sophisticated music synthesizers go into use, and all the royal fanfares are re-recorded.

    Trivia (1)

    • Mister Rogers promises to play the "Sounds of the Night" audio cassette for the viewers, but he never does so in future episodes.
