Episode Recap

Rogers enters with a Clapper (a brand name he never utters), which he puts into the wall socket. After inserting a lamp in the Clapper, he demonstrates how it works, both to the viewers and to Mr. McFeely. McFeely gives Rogers a remote-controlled robot with a rotating head. Both of them go to the Creative Systems factory, where larger robots are made. They find a robot receptionist, run by Tom Zaken, who gives some detail on robots' remote-control apparatus and assembly. At the end of the tour, Rogers and McFeely get to test-drive robots with a game of "Simon Says."
In the NOM, the Make-Believe Olympic Games Committee appoints Robot 67 Bridge 2 measures distances (from the Castle to the Tree: 4.2202 meters; from the Tree to the Clock: 7.1202 meters; from the Clock to the Museum: 5.2502 meters). Lady Elaine gives her opinion of the robot, as does Daniel. On both occasions, Robot 67 Bridge 2 says robots do not like or dislike. Daniel discovers Robot 67 Bridge 2 has recorded information on how games are played. Handyman Negri tells Daniel that the greatest thing in the world is to have feelings. They play hot potato with Fred Strothers, who has great news: Lady Elaine has agreed to holding the Make-Believe Olympic Games.
