Daniel Tiger welcomes everyone to the enchanted garden for the Thank You Day celebration. Standing in awe under the thank you tree, Grandpere reads a note he wrote to Daniel thanking him for his big tiger hugs.

Mom Tiger provides Daniel with paper and crayons to write a thank you note. Before writing a note, Daniel watches as Katerina learns a Thank You Day twirl from her mother. She shares the thank you note she has written to her mom. Prince Wednesday also shares a note he has written to Prince Tuesday thanking him for playing ball.

While the others go with Teacher Harriet to hang their notes on the tree, Daniel make-believes that the thank you tree is able to tell about all of the thank you notes hanging from its branches.

Miss Elaina and her family arrive in the garden playing the instruments they have been practicing for the celebration. Happy to express her thanks, Miss Elaina gives her parents a thank you note which they hang in the tree.

The wind picks up and the thank you notes are blown from the tree's branches. Luckily, Mr. McFeely is able to gather them quickly in the basket on his bicycle. He sings the Speedy Delivery song as he returns the note to their owners. Daniel decides to write a thank you note to Mr. McFeely for his hard work and for saving Thank You Day.
