|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a punching bag and a cassette recorder and shares that he is feeling frustrated today. He goes on to mention that he accidentally erased all of the recordings he made the previous day and used the punching bag to vent his frustrations.
After singing What Do You Do With the Mad That You Feel, Mister Rogers returns to the kitchen where he re-records the instrument sounds. He also plays voice recordings of several characters from the Neighborhood of Make-Believe.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin is frustrated with her knitting project and is offered some mediocre advice from King Friday: "If at first you don't succeed, stay as sweet as you are." Increasingly frustrated as she moves throughout the Neighborhood, Lady Aberlin finds herself at the clock where Daniel Striped Tiger suggest that she punch a bag of rags. As Lady Aberlin is starting to feel better, X the Owl arrives and compliments her on her knitting which X is able to wear as a vest. Lady Aberlin continues releasing her remaining frustrations by dancing throughout the Neighborhood.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers has been joined by Ed Kosewicz -- a sculptor who demonstrates how anger can be expressed through shaping clay.
