    • TRIVIA (2)

      • 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."

    • QUOTES (1)

      • The original lyrics of the song for Henrietta Pussycat are as follows:
        You are pretty
        You are black
        You are beautifully dressed
        In lovely fur
        Finely curled
        Perfectly, you are pretty
        Elegant, you are black.

    • NOTES (1)

      • This was the only time in the modern series that Fred Rogers ran a "Funny Fast Film" on Picture-Picture. Of course, this sped-up film of Mr. McFeely mowing a lawn, was shot a long time ago.
