FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Mrs. Russellite: The king likes special things, so...
      Mister Rogers: He likes the same things all the time, it seems.

    • Handyman Negri: It is tough getting used to new things sometimes. Like new shoes or something like that.
      Daniel: I'll never forget the time I had to get used to a junior bed.
      Handyman Negri: A junior bed?
      Daniel: Yeah. After a crib, you know. I was so used to my crib.
      Handyman Negri: Aw, I bet that was kind of tough. Do you like it now?
      Daniel: Oh, I love it now!

    • Mister Rogers: (reading a speedy delivery message) "Sorry I can't come to visit today. Too busy. If you're taking a walk, maybe you'll stop by. Sweetness and light, Mrs. Russellite."

    • Mister Rogers: How do you feel about new things? Sure. What about growing? You like to grow, don't you? That's sort of like 'going up' (refers to ladder.

    • Mister Rogers: How are you doing with your tying? It took me a long time to make that (holds up shoe lace) and that (holds up the other shoe lace) into a bow.

    • Mister Rogers: Hi. Glad to see you today. I shall button my buttons on this sweater, change my shoes, and get ready to have some time with you in this very special studio of ours.

  • NOTES (4)

    • The neighborhood in the opening credits looks remarkably different than it will in later episodes, with different streets and structures, and even some high-rise buildings.

    • The funding credits in the beginning of this and all pre-1979 episodes are silent. At the end of this episode and all episodes this season, an announcer would tell us that the production funds for that television visit were provided by a grant from The Sears-Roebuck Foundation and a special children's program fund established by N.E.T. affiliated stations.

    • All programs from this season and the next three, are billed as "Produced by WQED Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in association with Small World Enterprises for NET."

    • The show at the time was known as Misterogers' Neighborhood and was filmed in black & white. The living room of Rogers' television house had beige walls with wainscoting. Much of the scenery inside the house would remain the same with minor changes throughout the run (such as the fish tank in the kitchen).
