In the first episode, we get to visit a restaurant, and then in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Henrietta Pussycat and X the Owl get angry with each other while making fruit salad.
In the second episode, the Neighborhood of Make-Believe comes first, which totally disoriented me since I ALWAYS remembered it the other way around--anyway, Lady Aberlin asks questions about what love is, and then in the real neighborhood we get to hear lullabyes played on a mandolin by a Ukranian guy with a mullet.
I had forgotten just how serious this show is. I tend to file it away with "happy childhood memories," but really, love and friendship and anger and all of that ARE serious topics for anyone, and Mister Rogers does not water down his themes just because his audience is very young.
The DVD extras are pretty cool--for adults, a video of Mister Rogers accepting his lifetime achievement award, which is touching in and of itself but also includes a neat video synopsis of his life (it doesn't mention his death though). The teddy bear assembly was interesting as well. My kid is still in the womb so I will have to get back with you about the effectiveness of the kid activities and games on the DVD. :)
My one disappointment was that Daniel Striped Tiger, who is totally my favorite, was not on either episode. I missed Corny, too, in his rocking chair factory--he wasn't even on the DVD extra.
