Episode Recap

Bob Trow has loaned two sloping sticks to Rogers. Once at the television house, Rogers envisions them as part of a block roadway. He uses two model cars to go down the hill (sloping sticks) and play hide-and-seek. Bob Trow arrives with a large chair that he made. The chair fits perfectly with the sloped sticks to make a rocking chair. Trow allows Rogers to borrow the chair for the rest of the day. In the NOM, Lady Aberlin gets the Trolley to play a stop-and-go game. Bob Dog shares the stop-and-go concept in a dance and Lady Aberlin's clapping exercise. Cornflake S. Pecially asks Bob Dog and Lady Aberlin to build Instant Assembly Rocking Chairs from magic pieces, designed for the Make-Believe Olympic Games. At Corny's suggestion, Lady Aberlin and Bob Dog play a stop-and-go game in their rocking chairs. But while the sign says "Stop," Lady Aberlin and Bob Dog can't stop rocking. Lady Elaine has used her Boomerang-Toomerang-Soomerang on them because she doesn't want to be stuck being "it" in tag or hide-and-seek. When everyone assures Lady Elaine that they will take turns being "it," Bob Dog and Lady Aberlin are allowed to stop rocking. At the Clock, Lady Aberlin comforts Daniel, who has been upset after a game of tag with Lady Elaine. Lady Aberlin says that people don't have to play certain games if they don't want to. Back at the television house, Rogers conducts a stop-and-go game in the kitchen. He advises viewers to clap their hands when he shows the "go" side of a piece of paper, and stop when he displays the "stop" side.
