Where the trash goes

A brand-new season of the hit PBS KIDS show, Donkey Hodie, premieres this August 14. To celebrate, we have curated a special batch of episodes that feature the characters on the show who originally appeared in Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. Watch Grampy Hodie, Bob Dog, and more!


Mister Rogers arrives with a greeting card showing a picture of a fish and talks about repurposing them. Mr. McFeely stops by, and they talk about what happens to garbage. When Mr. McFeely departs, Mister Rogers finds a paper bag in his yard and decides to keep it. It’s garbage day in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe and Handyman Negri is busy collecting the trash when he and Bob Dog learn that the dump at Someplace Else is getting full. At Someplace Else, Donkie Hodie and Harriett Elizabeth Cow share with Handyman Negri that the dump is indeed getting full and is threatening to overflow into the schoolyard. Handyman Negri realizes that a new dump must be found as there is no more room at Someplace Else. Back at the house, Mister Rogers takes the paper bag and a ball outside where he makes up a new game. Marilyn Barnett stops by for some exercises.
