One of Mister Rogers' neighbors has made a Mr. McFeely doll which Mister Rogers has borrowed. Mentioning how this doll was made by hand, Mister Rogers leads into a short film of things people can do with their hands.

After the film, Mister Rogers moves to the floor where he builds a tower with wooden blocks and uses the Mr. McFeely doll to knock it down. Mister Rogers then uses his hands to flip through a picture book about the Neighborhood of Make-Believe.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Neighbor Aber tries to talk with Lady Elaine about her feelings. Still angry, Lady Elaine thinks she may have turned Mr. McFeely into a doll and threatens to do the same to anyone else who crosses her. As a result of Lady Elaine's behavior, Ana Platypus fears what might happen next.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers reassures viewers that people cannot really be turned into dolls as he sings a shortened version of Everything Grows Together. Mr. McFeely stops by to pick up the doll and sings the Speedy Delivery song before Mister Rogers concludes the day by watching a film about how people make facial tissue.


This series of episodes is often referred to with the abbreviated title "Mad Feelings;" however, the full (lengthy) title is "What Do You Do With the Mad That You Feel?"
