  • Trivia

    • 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.

    • 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.
