This is featured on the Mister Rogers' Neighborhood DVD Going to School
Descriptive Video Service, provided by WGBH, neglected to extoll the details of the Owl Correspondence School plaque that appears at the end of Cousin Mary Owl's Tree Video. The plaque has an "established" date which DVS does not announce. By all looks of things, Owl Correspondence School was established in 1968.
Henrietta Pussycat tells Mayor Maggie that the tree in which she and X the Owl live is a make-believe tree. This contradicts Lady Aberlin's declaration that X's is an oak tree—a statement made 19 years before. X the Owl also said in August 1992 that he lives in "the Old Oak Tree."
One drawback of the book I Read Signs is that you pull the page that has a "push" sign.
Goof: Rogers introduces Make-Believe by saying Lady Elaine wants to use H.J. Elephant III to aid in her "Reading Game." However, the Reading Game has not been mentioned in any of the previous shows.
The closed-captioning got in the way of one of the "HM" monograms hidden in the picture to HulaMouse.
This is a rare instance in which the Neighborhood of Make-Believe is seen at night. The other occurrence was in Episode 1519 from the "Day Care & Night Care" series.
Nitpick: When Joe Negri stops by, Mr. Rogers says "You know my television neighbor." Joe would have met Rogers' television neighbor back when Joe first joined the show.
Funny enough, Rogers has to ask what a "trough" is. He had already seen a trough in April 1983, when he visited the bakery where graham crackers are made.
In this episode, Fred Rogers introduces his viewers to his "Mister Rogers Neighborhood" web site, which is still active and looks much the same more than a decade later.
In all past programs, the song for Henrietta Pussycat opened with the lyrics "You are pretty/You are black" (See Quotes). But in this, the last time anyone performs the song, Mayor Maggie tried to be more politically correct. She told Henrietta, "You are gray."
Descriptive Video Service alleged that Michael Yarmush was a "12-year-old boy." In truth, Yarmush was born June 19, 1982. That made him 17 years of age at the debut of this program.
When Chuck Aber played an audio cassette of the neighbors trying to talk sense into X and Henrietta, Queen Sara's was the first voice heard. But WGBH's closed-captioning identified Queen Sara's voice as Lady Elaine.
Rogers' reflection on "scary TV" was excerpted from The News Hour with Jim Lehrer when they featured an obituary for him in which he speaks for all smart television viewers.
The flashback of Rogers snorkeling with Sylvia Earle was taken from episode 1619 which first aired in early 1990.

The flashback of Mr. Rogers visiting Yo-Yo Ma and his son is from show 1625, "Fathers and Music (5)."
The song You Are Special is incorrectly identified as "You Are My Friend" by The Caption Center at WGBH.
Nitpick: Rogers mentions the Museum-Go-Round twice when he sets up the NOM models using common household items. He says that one of the containers will be the Museum-Go-Round & the crumpled paper will be the Museum-Go-Round, then he said, "No, this is the Platypus Mound."
WGBH's closed-captions incorrectly identified Dr. Bill Platypus as "Dr. Frogg," even though that family was never seen or heard from again after 1988.
