Mister Rogers arrives with a book of poetry by Al Worden -- Hello Earth: Greetings From Endeavour -- and shares a few of his works.

Mr. McFeely stops by with a piece of kinetic art from an exhibit at Elsie Neal's Craft Shop. Mister Rogers visits the exhibit and sees other pieces of kinetic sculpture in the shop's newly established gallery. Elsie Neal reads a poem from Al Worden's book before Mister Rogers leaves.

Returning to his house, Mister Rogers demonstrates how the Trolley operates on electricity.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Handyman Negri is trying to find the reason behind the lack of electricity at Corney's factory and soon finds that the entire Neighborhood is having electrical issues. The energy crisis is discussed in a secret meeting between Queen Sara, King Friday, and Al Worden.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers shows an electrical outlet and a safety plug. He concludes by singing I'm Taking Care of You.


Hello Earth: Greetings From Endeavour is available for purchase through Amazon.

The storage room at Elsie Neal's Craft Shop has recently been converted into an art gallery.

As Mister Rogers looks at a sculpture with unicycles, You've Got To Do It plays in the background.
