Episode Recap

Rogers explains why he unzips his sweater a bit: he meeds to free up his microphone so that he can be heard clearly. In the kitchen, Rogers draws a rainbow with just one color marker. He then adds other colors to make it more beautiful. That leads Rogers to think of a place where kids come in and play with many different toys (video insert). Rogers explains the meaning of the word "unique." He decides at the last minute to assemble a number of recycled items to simulate the NOM landmarks (yet again, nothing represents the Eiffel Tower). In the NOM, Dr. Bill Platypus explains to Queen Sara that Kevin Wendell Gorilla is friendly. Lady Aberlin tells Queen Sara that Kevin Wendell may not be a real gorilla. He is now at the Clock talking to Daniel. They sing a duet of You Are Special. Daniel decides that Kevin Wendell sounds like Chuck Aber. Kevin Wendell (i.e., Chuck Aber) removes his mask just seconds before Lady Aberlin appears at the Clock. Daniel tells her that Aber's heart came to his heart. Lady Aberlin asks that Chuck Aber put his mask on for Lady Elaine. He agrees, provided Lady Elaine not sound the alarm. Lady Aberlin introduces Kevin Wendell Gorilla to Lady Elaine. He says her alarm hurts him. Lady Elaine is surprised that gorillas have feelings, and is more surprised to see Chuck Aber in the costume. "Everybody inside wants to be welcomed and included and loved," says Aber. Mayor Maggie finds Aber at the Museum-Go-Round. Back at the television house, Mr. McFeely informs Rogers that the library would like the book Zak, the One-of-a-Kind Dog by Jane Lidz returned as soon as possible. Mr. McFeely reads the book with Rogers. Before leaving, Mr. McFeely leads Rogers to the porch, where Mr. McFeely winds up a long-legged toy. Rogers reminds viewers that each person is one of a kind.
