    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Mister Rogers' meeting must have been short indeed – and just outside his house. He was gone exactly three minutes and twenty seconds from the time he stepped out the door and came back inside the house.

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Daniel: You don't think I'm a mistake?
        Lady Aberlin: You're the tiger I love most in this whole universe.
        Daniel: Oh, thanks, Lady Aberlin. I love you, too.

      • Mr. Skunk: Sometimes I make a bad smell when I'm frightened.
        Handyman Negri: A skunk kind of smell?
        Mr. Skunk: Yes, it just happens naturally when I get startled or sense danger or...well, you know.
        Handyman Negri: I have smelled a skunk kind of smell before.
        Mr. Skunk: It's just part of being a skunk.
        Handyman Negri: I guess all skunks do it sometimes.
        Mr. Skunk: Yes, but when I do it by mistake, I get really ashamed.
        Handyman Negri: What do you mean, by mistake?
        Mr. Skunk: Oh, I mean if I'm playing hide and seek with some friends and somebody jumps out at me and says, "Boo!", well, I might do it and smell up the whole game.

      • King Friday: First, I must ask you a very personal question.
        Mr. Skunk: (warily) Go ahead. You're the king.
        King Friday: I was just wondering, because you're a skunk and all…we wouldn't want anything to, uh, smell up the poetry reading…you know what I mean.
        Mr. Skunk: Oh, I do that only when I'm frightened.

      • Daniel Tiger: I've been wondering…if…I was a mistake.

      • Daniel Tiger: Thanks for being my friend.
        Lady Aberlin: Thank you for being mine!
        Daniel Tiger: It works both ways, doesn't it?
        Lady Aberlin: Good things usually do.

      • (The lyrics to "Sometimes I Wonder if I'm a Mistake")
        Daniel: (Singing his part)
        Sometimes I wonder if I'm a mistake.
        I'm not like anyone else I know.
        When I'm asleep or even awake,
        Sometimes I get to dreaming that I'm just a fake!
        I'm not like anyone else.
        Others I know are big and are wild;
        I'm very small and quite tame.
        Most of the time, I'm weak and I'm mild.
        Do you suppose that's a shame?
        Often I wonder if I'm a mistake--
        I'm not supposed to be scared, am I?
        Sometimes I cry and sometimes I shake,
        Wondering isn't it true that the strong never break?
        I'm not like anyone else I know.
        I'm not like anyone else.
        Lady Aberlin: (Singing her part)


        I think you are just fine as you are.
        I really must tell you.
        I do like the person that you are becoming.
        When you are sleeping,
        When you are waking.
        You are my friend.
        It's really true.
        I like you.
        Crying or shaking,
        Or dreaming or breaking.
        There's no one mistaking it.
        You're my best friend.
        I think you are just fine as you are.
        I really must tell you.
        I do like the person that you are becoming.
        When you are sleeping,
        When you are waking.
        You're not a fake.
        You're no mistake.
        You are my friend.

        (Daniel and Lady Aberlin sing their parts together.)

      • Mr. Rogers: All tigers are different just like all people are different, and there is no person in this whole world who is a mistake. No matter how different that person may seem, each person is fine.

      • Mr. Skunk: Why did Mister Rogers have to go away?
        Chuck Aber: Well, why do you think he did?
        Mr. Skunk: Because he didn't like me?
        Chuck Aber: Oh, no! He likes you a lot, Mr. Skunk.
        Mr. Skunk: Well, then why did he have to leave?
        Chuck Aber: Well, there was something he had to do, and he had to do it by himself.
        Mr. Skunk: But…
        Chuck Aber: But what?
        Mr. Skunk: But, will he ever come back?
        Chuck Aber: Oh, sure he will! He said he would.
        Mr. Skunk: And he always does what he says?
        Chuck Aber: He always tries to.
