Episode Summary

EDIT
Fathers & Music (4)
AIRED:
Rogers reads a book a teenage girl had made for her father. He then puts stuffing in a toy wolf for a friend. Later in the program, Ella Jenkins visits (as does Chuck Aber) to perform some songs. In between, those in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe discuss their feelings about wolves. Daniel Striped Tiger tells those at school that he doesn't have a musical father, like Ana and Prince Tuesday.moreless

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • In real life, Lani Droz's book was spotted by Fred Rogers while he was preparing for these episodes. Lani was the stepdaughter of Fred's Director of Special Projects. However, the book used in this episode that Lani did is a duplicate, since the original didn't show up on camera as well.

      • Ella Jenkins says she hasn't been with Chuck Aber since their Hambone jive in the episode called "Music (3)," broadcast in May 1985. Actually, they were together at Mister Rogers' sand table during Playthings week in November 1986.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Neighbor Aber: You could never be a big bad wolf, Lady Elaine.
        Lady Elaine: Not even if somebody made-believed me into one?
        Neighbor Aber: Nobody could ever do that.
        Lady Elaine: Why not?
        Neighbor Aber: Do you want to tell her why, Lady Aberlin?
        Lady Aberlin: Nobody could ever make-believe you into a big bad wolf because you don't want to be a big bad wolf.
        Lady Elaine: I sure don't.
        Lady Aberlin: Nobody could ever make-believe you into anything you didn't want to be.
        Lady Elaine: Nobody could?
        Lady Aberlin and Neighbor Aber: Nobody.
        Lady Elaine: Not even Tuesday or his rag doll, Tome?
        Lady Aberlin and Neighbor Aber: Nobody.

      • Mr. Rogers: One of the greatest things about living is being able to get to know people and having them become friends. I wish for you wonderful friends all through your life. You never know where you'll find a true friend. But when you do, you'll know it, and you'll have such a good feeling.
