Josie opens the show with the Why Hi Song before finding out that the lights are out inside Daniel's clock. He is hosting seventeen of his closest tiger friends and is able to borrow a flashlight from Morty Tiger.

Lady Elaine Fairchilde has returned from Hawaii and brought leis for everyone. Josie successfully places one around Daniel's neck but hers is a bit small. This leaves her to get creative with it as she wears it around her arm. Realizing that she has not properly introduced Daniel, she goes into a long-winded introduction during which Daniel himself falls asleep.

While Daniel sleeps, Josie takes a lei to King Friday in Calendarland where he is using a balloon to exercise. Realizing that she has not made an appointment, she phones to be sure the King is available. At the castle, King Friday is presented with a lei as a "royal beard scratcher" and treats Josie to a performance of Propel Propel Propel Your Craft.

Vivian Richmond visits and performs various folk songs while she plays her dulcimer and guitar. After the songs, Josie visits Grandpere to share with him one of the songs she has learned. During her visit, Grandpere teaches Josie the French word for "hello."

After learning that the lights are back on at Daniel's clock, Josie concludes with the So Long Song.


As she introduces Daniel, Josie mentions that he is the "president of the Tame Tiger Torganization."

King Friday's telephone number is 1-3.
