Mister Rogers attends a rehearsal for the performance groups, Stomp. He talks with the various performers about their talents and how instruments can be made from everyday items.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin talks with Daniel Tiger who is at Grandpere's upside-down tower. Making a call to the McFeely's, they realize that Mr. McFeely has not been turned into a doll after all. At the Museum-Go-Round, this news is shared with a very relieved Lady Elaine who returns the tower to its normal state. At the tower, Lady Elaine offers an apology to Grandpere and gives him a sculpture of the tower she has made from play clay.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers concludes the week by singing What Do You Do With the Mad That You Feel.


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?"

As Lady Aberlin dances outside Grandpere's upside-down Tower, a sharp eye might catch something out of the ordinary on her left forearm. Was it a tattoo? A bruise?

According to Betty Aberlin...

"It's not a tattoo. It looks like a stain or paint/ink, a bruise, or maybe I gave blood and they couldn't find the vein?"

This episode is featured on the Child Care Video Library VHS release What Do You Do With the Mad That You Feel.

This episode is included on the Would You Be Mine Collection (DVD).
