    • Mister Rogers: When a bubble is gone, you don't see it anymore with your eyes. And when an opera is over, you don't hear it anymore with your ears. But you can remember. You can remember what bubbles look like, and what operas sound like, and what friends feel like. And you'll always have them with you in your memory.

    • Robert Redgate: Today, as usual, we have some good news, and some very good news. First, the good news.

  • Notes

    • This was one of only 2 episodes where Fred did not sing the entire opening song, and did not sing any closing song at all. The other was "Grandparents (5)".

    • This was arguably the most technically-complex opera Rogers had ever staged.

    • Beginning and end captions only identify this program as Mister Rogers Makes an Opera. This is the only time the Mister Rogers' Neighborhood logo does not appear on the broadcast.

    • This was the only time in the series that Rogers didn't enter his house. He sat on the swing on his porch to introduce Windstorm in Bubbleland.
