Mister Rogers arrives with a wooden peg board -- or as he calls it, a pounding board -- and offers a demonstration describing how a pounding mallet should only be used for its intended purpose.

In the kitchen, Mister Rogers has made some play clay -- something else to safely pound on. After smashing the clay, Mister Rogers smiles and sings I Think I'm Going to Like Today.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday and Lady Aberlin continue to try and come up with a way to help Lady Elaine with her anger. Meanwhile, Daniel is afraid that Lady Elaine will turn his clock upside down or turn him into a doll. Lady Aberlin borrows a pounding block from Daniel in hopes of sharing it with Lady Elaine. Before heading to the Museum-Go-Round, Lady Aberlin sings You're Growing. Betty Okonak Templeton is in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe with the ingredients for play clay and it appears that her assistance might be just what Lady Elaine needs.

Back at the house, Mr. McFeely stops by with a steel pan (steel drum) which he uses to play a portion of the Speedy Delivery song. Of course, Mister Rogers tries his hand at the instrument as well. Inside, the two watch a film about how steel pans are made.


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?"
