Neighbor Aber’s experiment

Mister Rogers shows that he wears a microphone on his tie. He draws a rainbow and thinks about children playing with toys. Mister Rogers uses common items from his kitchen to set the scene rather than his models. In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin is talking to Queen Sara about Kevin Wendell Gorilla and suggests that he may not be a real gorilla. Meanwhile, at the clock, Daniel and Kevin agree to be friends as they sing You Are Special. After singing, Kevin Wendell Gorilla reveals that he is really Neighbor Aber wearing a gorilla costume. He was doing an experiment to see how people would treat him if he didn’t look like himself. Back at the house, Mr. McFeely visits to read a library book with Mister Rogers. He also shows Mister Rogers a new toy.
