Episode Recap

Rogers brings in an odd-shaped chair designed to rest one's knees. He invites viewers to think at all the different kinds of chairs and homes. Mr. McFeely tries out the new chair, comparing it to a rocking horse. This leads to his delivery: how people make wooden rocking horses. After the screening, Mr. McFeely shows Rogers the rocking horse that was made in the factory. In the NOM, Chuck Aber offers his support to the Museum-Go-Round cover exhibit. The Platypus family has created a plaid cloth to cover the Museum pillars. Near the end of the cloth are words of peace in several languages (including "Fred"). A pyramid cover is actually three pyramids hiding a ball. The Frogg Family donates what Lady Elaine thinks is a hat with earlaps. Actually, Mrs. Frogg thought of a heart to cover Lady Elaine's bell. James Michael Jones, carrying baby Carrie Dell on his back, gives a stool cover to the exhibit. Lady Elaine is wondering what happened to Corny's donation. Before leaving, Aber sings a song about liking people. Corny says he had given the horse-covered rocking chair to Lady Aberlin. Chuck Aber discovers Henrietta Pussycat ringing her bell constantly for that flying rocking chair. Aber can't get it down, even with a picture of King Friday XIII. X the Owl says the flying rocking chair is perfect for an outside exhibit. This Lady Aberlin and Chuck Aber tell Lady Elaine. She not only is pleased with the idea, she also gives Chuck Aber a cover: a large King Friday XIII mask. Songs: Won't You Be My Neighbor?, You Are Special, How Do You Help To Know That You Like Him, Good Feeling.
