Episode Summary

EDIT
Divorce (5)
AIRED:
Rogers wears a false-face to show that he is still himself inside. In Make-Believe, the Royal Electric Plane-Car arrives via a clown courier. Behind that mask is Chuck Aber, who has been divorced and doesn't see much of his children. Thus, Prince Tuesday can relate to Aber's feelings. Corny reveals his secret: he is now making rocking-chair-shaped pretzels. Mister Rogers concludes his visit by showing viewers the ins and outs of an airplane.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Mister Rogers' song, "The Truth Will Make You Free" takes its theme from Jesus' words in John 8:32 - "You will know the truth and the truth will make you free."

      • Queen Sara calls the clown deliveryman "Mr. Aber Clown" even though they have never met before and Aber doesn't say his real name. But we would see a lot more of him in future episodes.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Mister Rogers: When I was a little boy, sometimes I had worries that I didn't know how to tell my mom and dad. But my grandmother sometimes knew that I was worried, even when I didn't say so. And I really felt glad when she mentioned it to me. I remember worrying and playing about divorce once. Divorce is something about grown-ups, but it's natural for children to worry about it because they love and need both their mom and dad.

      • Mister Rogers: Sometimes it's fun to wait, because you can think about things--just take a little time. But sometimes it's not fun to wait, especially when you've been wanting to show somebody something just like I've been wanting to show you.

    • NOTES (3)

      • This is Chuck Aber's first significant appearance as himself. During the 1970s, he had been behind the puppet character H.J. Elephant III (and had uncredited work as an extra).

      • No one really knows if Chuck Aber's clown delivery role was the inspiration for the Major Bedhead character on The Big Comfy Couch, which began airing in 1993.

      • USAir, which provided production assistance for this program, had changed its name from "Allegheny Airlines" just a year before.
