Episode Recap

Rogers enters with an atomizer, which he uses to clear the air of a strange smell. Then comes the phone call from Mr. McFeely. Rogers has forgotten that he was supposed to take care of business somewhere. He leaves to do his task, putting Chuck Aber in charge for a few minutes. Aber, helping Mr. McFeely, has brought a skunk puppet to the television house. He and the skunk have a dialogue on why Rogers left, in which Aber assures he will return. This he relates through sign language: Aber does up a pretend zipper as a way to sign "Mr. Rogers." Rogers returns just in time for NOM. In the NOM, Mr. Skunk visits the Castle. He assures the King and then Handyman Negri that he only sprays when he is frightened, such as in a game of hide-and-seek. Audrey Duck, wearing a new dress, appears quickly, frightening Mr. Skunk. The smell reaction embarrasses Mr. Skunk Both Audrey and Handyman Negri will have to change. Lady Aberlin remedies the situation, spraying her atomizer throughout the NOM. At the Clock, she explains Mr. Skunk's mistake to Daniel Tiger. Daniel wonders if he is a mistake, since he is tame. Lady Aberlin assures him otherwise. She encounters Handyman Negri, who tells her Audrey Duck has disappeared. Back at the television house, Rogers shows a videotape on how people make erasers.
