Go-Stop-Go Award

Mister Rogers arrives with a tape recorder which he uses to play some music as he plays a go-stop-go game — when the music plays, he moves and when it stops, he stops. Sitting at the piano, Mister Rogers plays music so viewers can play the game as well. Visiting the school where Marilyn Barnett serves as principal, Mister Rogers joins in as she leads a first-grade class in some exercises. The exercising is interrupted when the school holds a fire drill, and the class quickly exits the building. Back inside the school, Ms. Barnett shows her office to Mister Rogers. In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Neighbor Aber and Prince Tuesday are talking about the fire at the Platypus mound. The residents of Westwood have made a generous donation of supplies to help the Platypus family. King Friday asks Neighbor Aber to bring Lady Elaine to the scene of the fire where an award will be presented. The Platypus family has been staying as the Museum-Go-Round and are very happy to receive the supplies from Westwood. Everyone gathers to hear the King’s presentation. An award is given to “volunteer hose-squirter Fairchilde” — a Go-Stop-Go Award for knowing when it’s okay to use her water hose. Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings I’m Proud of You before Mr. McFeely stops by with a comb and a videotape about how people make combs. Mister Rogers concludes by sitting at the piano and playing the go-stop-go game with Mr. McFeely.
