Theater for the Deaf

By January 10, 2020 February 21st, 2020 No Comments


Chef Brockett introduces Mister Rogers to two people who perform pantomime. The coach, Tim Scanlon, is deaf. Mister Rogers asks him to recite and mime a poem that most children would know. Mister Rogers wonders how his two new neighbors teach people pantomime, and they demonstrate by making an invisible banana split.

Scanlon then appeared in a few Neighborhood of Make-Believe segments as X the Owl’s teacher. Fred and Scanlon remained friends; Scanlon performed in a live stage show celebrating Fred in 1979—Fred’s 25th year in children’s television.
