Episode Recap

Rogers has borrowed a megaphone from Marilyn Barnett. Then he makes his own megaphones, first cupping his hands and then using a cardboard tube. Barnett visits, giving Rogers exercises that they do while holding hands. In one, they step to one side and then the other. In their second exercise, one crouches down while the other stays upright. In the NOM, King Friday calls out for some company. Lady Aberlin shows up, telling King Friday they are still trying to retrieve the vacuum sweepers. As she leaves the Castle, Chuck Aber greets her. They go to the Museum-Go-Round, where a megaphone sits on the roof. Purple Panda and Prince Tuesday says Lady Elaine has kept all the vacuum sweepers in the Museum's VS room. Lady Elaine finally emerges, telling everyone her fears about vacuum sweepers. All sympathize with her. Purple Panda admits he had been afraid of vacuum sweepers. At Prince Tuesday's request, Lady Elaine brings out one of the vacuum sweepers. Purple Panda sings the truth about vacuum sweepers while he pretends to run the vacuum sweeper. Everyone joins in the song. Lady Elaine is relieved. She agrees to return the vacuum sweepers, with everyone's help. Back at the television house, Rogers says that whenever one has a worry or scare, he or she should talk about it. He spends most of the next 16 minutes at the Inner-City Arts Center. Bob Bates leads Rogers to the first room, where kids are building and painting sculptures. Rogers helps paint one of the sculptures. In another room, Rogers greets Ed, a music teacher. He has set up a musical beam for Rogers as part of a rhythmic exercise. The xylophone player starts a rhythm, then the drummer, a xylophone player, a chime player, and then to Rogers, who works the beam. Bob leads Rogers to the room where kids make clay ceramics, particularly vases. Songs: Won't You Be My Neighbor?, Vacuum Sweepers, It's You I Like, Good Feeling.
