Episode Recap

Rogers has a wooden box he takes into the kitchen. He shows what's inside the box: eight batteries (two Ds, four Cs, and two AAs), which he has brought for Mr. McFeely's impending visit. Rogers shows a flashlight with a huge battery in it, and, after closing the kitchen curtains, he operates the flashlight. He starts to sing about smiles when someone knocks on the door. In an homage to the pre-73 series, viewers look out the window to see the visitor: Maggie Stewart. She brings the toys which go with the batteries. Stewart also starts to discuss her early days learning sign language when Rogers asks her to sing and sign Your Smile's Your Style. (That evaporates Rogers' last effort to sing the song in its original inflections.) After Stewart leaves, Rogers puts batteries in a tape recorder and a toy car. Mr. McFeely arrives, showing Rogers his battery-powered car "which McFeely calls his "delivery wagon"). Rogers drives the car and witnesses the batteries under the seats. Mr. McFeely says he is taking heavy deliveries to the school. Rogers gives Mr. McFeely the paper chain that had been hanging in the television house for the past few days.
In the NOM, everyone is still preparing for the School field trip. Chuck Aber has prepared a battery-powered car. He is about to visit the School, hoping the field trip is on. Henrietta says she will display her treehouse to the schoolkids.
At the School, Prince Tuesday feels the King would favor James Michael Jones' learning machine. Tuesday and Ana would prefer the field trip. But Daniel votes for both. The more they can use for learning, the better. Sure they'll use the learning machine, but not all the time. The field trip is on, starting at the Platypus Mound.
Unbelievably, this marks the last-ever visit to the School at Someplace Else, although it will continue to be mentioned.
Songs: Won't You Be My Neighbor?, Your Smile's Your Style, Speedy Delivery To You (first two stanzas), It's You I Like, Good Feeling.
