  • Trivia

    • Descriptive Video Service (DVS) is used to saying "Trolley goes through a tunnel" at the end of Neighborhood of Make-Believe segments. That sentence is used again today, even though Trolley does not enter a tunnel. (The bass violin on Trolley's roof prevents this.)

  • Quotes

    • Mr. Rogers: I guess you know that I really love music. In fact, it's been very, very important to me since I was very little. My mom and dad didn't like me to bang when I was angry. But I found that if I played the piano when I was angry, they didn't mind that, so that's what I did. (Plays the piano) I'd play like that. And then little by little, I'd see that the music would be sounding less and less angry. So, it seemed that the more I played, the more anger got out of me, and I felt better about everything. That's one reason I wrote that song, "Good Feeling," because it does give you a good feeling to know that there's something that you can do to help you become the master of the mad that you feel and not have to hurt yourself or anybody else. I hope that you're finding your ways of saying how you feel--ways that don't hurt you or anybody else and really help people to have very good feelings.

    • Jimmy Bass Violin: Hello, Keith.
      Keith Bass Violin: I don't wanna talk.
      Jimmy Bass Violin: Well, what's the matter?
      Keith Bass Violin: I don't know.
      Jimmy Bass Violin: Well, I thought we could play together.
      Keith Bass Violin: I don't feel like playing with you.
      Jimmy Bass Violin: Why not?
      Keith Bass Violin: You're too young.
      Jimmy Bass Violin: But I'm your brother, and I want to play with you.
      Keith Bass Violin: Well, that's too bad. I'm gonna play with my big friends. Bye! (exits)
      Jimmy Bass Violin: Oh, I feel so sad. I think I'll cry. Boo hoo hoo hoo hoo!
      Daniel: Jimmy, I'll play with you.
      Jimmy Bass Violin: Who are you?
      Daniel: I'm Daniel Striped Tiger, and I'm a good player.
      Jimmy Bass Violin: Well, I didn't expect you to come and help me.
      Daniel: Well sometimes people get sad and sometimes people get angry, and I know all about that.
      Jimmy Bass Violin: Do you know about brothers who won't play with you when you want them to?
      Daniel: Yes, I do. Oh, look, here comes your big brother now.
      (Keith enters)
      Keith Bass Violin: Who are you?
      Daniel: I'm Daniel Tiger, and I'm Jimmy's friend.
      Keith Bass Violin: Are you part of the puppet show?

      Jimmy Bass Violin: Oh, you're welcome to stay, Daniel.
      Daniel: Well, thank you!
