As Mister Rogers enters, he notices a nail sticking up from a board on the porch. Using a hammer, he pounds the nail back into place.

At Negri's Music Shop, Bob Rawsthorne shows a collection of gongs and explains how each one makes different sounds. Returning to the house, Mister Rogers uses pans and lids to make sounds of his own.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, the Festival of Mad Feelings begins as King Friday XIII strikes a gong. Throughout the Neighborhood, everyone expresses their anger in positive ways including punching a bag, playing music, listening to music, striking a bell, and crunching celery.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about how there are many positive ways to express anger. He concludes by playing the piano and singing an "angry" version of Many Ways to Say I Love You ("There's the piano way to say I'm angry.")


As he walks through the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Francois Clemmons quietly singsWhat Do You Do With the Mad That You Feel to himself.

The band in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe plays two songs -- the second of which is It's Such a Good Feeling.

Handyman Negri is dressed in casual clothing for the festival rather than in his usual handyman jacket.
