    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Francois Clemmons writes a song for the children that he says has their names in it, but he brings up a sign with the lyrics written on it and it says "Anna, Prince and Daniel." Prince is the young man's title; his name is Tuesday. The lyrics in the song (and the subsequent name plaque he is given) should have said Tuesday, not Prince. If they had done that, then they could have juggled the children's names around in the song (like Anna, Tuesday, Daniel, or Daniel, Anna, Tuesday, or Tuesday, Daniel, Anna) since each name had two syllables, instead of telling the boy that since Prince only had one syllable, it had to be in the middle. In fact, he should have spoken up and said, "But my name is Tuesday!"

      • Ana Platypus's name is printed "Anna" in this episode.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Mister Rogers: (To the viewers) Have you gone to school yet, or will you go soon so you can learn from your teacher? Teachers need children like you. They couldn't be teachers if they didn't have somebody to teach. And what they like best is somebody who really wants to learn.
