  • Trivia

    • In viewing his cut-out of a fish from the wrong side, Mister Rogers taped the fish upside-down to a stick (one can tell from the eye).

  • Quotes

    • Mister Rogers: People can like pets, and pets can like people.

    • Elsie Jean: (Referring to Anna) I think she'd like a live pet, sire.
      Lady Aberlin: Yes.
      King Friday: Well, live pets are entirely different kinds of creatures.
      Elsie Jean: Yes, sire.
      King Friday: One can't usually keep a live pet in a drawer.
      Elsie Jean: No, but live pets are more cuddly at times than one on a wooden stick.
      King Friday: I suppose they are.

    • This was the last time Rogers sang I'm Angry, which had been a semi-staple of pre-79 shows. Lyrics were as follows:
      I'm Angry
      I'm Angry
      And I can tell you why
      The reason I am angry
      Is that somebody made me feel very small
      And all of a sudden
      I cried
      I almost lied
      And said I wasn't scared
      But I was scared
      And now
      I'm Angry
      I'm Angry
