Episode Recap

Rogers enters with a backpack which contains two things. He pulls out one item: a photo of a large elephant and a baby elephant. Promptly, Rogers goes to see the elephants at the Pittsburgh Zoo. One worker welcomes Rogers to see how elephants are fed. Rogers is amused at what and how much an elephant can do with its trunk. He also helps give water to the elephants. Another worker takes Rogers to see how she gives elephants a bath. Back at the television house, Rogers returns to his backpack and pulls out the second item: a video on how people make backpacks. In the NOM, H.J. Elephant III shows a picture of his parents to King Friday XIII and Mayor Maggie. Noticing the backpack Mayor Maggie wears, King Friday tries to find out what is inside. Mayor Maggie is not pleased with the King's nosy behavior, especially since there's nothing in her backpack. She and H.J. go to Westwood. King Friday orders Handyman Negri to ask Cornflake S. Pecially if he can make a device that looks inside things. Corny says he will do his best.
