Fred Rogers explores various topics for young viewers through presentations and music, both in his world and in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe.
Episode #1184, from Season 4, 1971, was the first time musician Eric Kloss appeared on the show; he was second only to Johnny Costa for the most appearances by any musician; however, Kloss only appeared in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe once.

Don't you worry about that. Don't you mind. There will *always* be mechanical scoffers.
In the 1979-1981 episodes when Mr. Rogers takes his sweater and closes the closet door, he'd often close it too fast so it came open a ways, but then the closet door begins to close on its own, as if someone were behind the door pulling it closed.
The episode number in the older episodes did not appear until immediately following the end credits. A screen would appear with the logo on the top, the trolley off to the left, and the episode number hung on a sign hanging on the show logo. This was used for episodes 1001-1460. And then, beginning with the 1500s episodes, the number was now shown on screen in the opening.
Various theme-week episodes were released to video in the late-1980s in a special format. For instance, the week of "Day Care and Night Care" (#1516-1520) was released to video under the title "When Parents Are Away", and featured the Neighborhood of Make-Believe segments, edited into new segments featuring Mr. Rogers, as well as old segments like him visiting the day care home. In the old version, Fred meets Mr. McFeely at Brockett's bakery and they go to the day care home together. But in the video version, Mr. McFeely visits Mr. Rogers from Brockett's bakery and they leave from the house.
