No Red Sweater For Daniel
Daniel Tiger is pretending to be a duck when Mom Tiger asks him to change out of his pajamas -- it's time to go to the post office. Picking out his clothes for the day, Daniel is disappointed when he finds that his favorite red sweater is in the wash. Mom encourages Daniel to wear something different and reminds him that no matter what he wears, he's still Daniel on the inside.
On the way to the post office, Daniel talks with Prince Wednesday whose usual glasses are being repaired by Doctor Anna. Daniel knows that even without his glasses, Prince Wednesday is still the same. Likewise, Prince Wednesday recognizes his friend Daniel, despite him wearing a blue sweater.
Looking at all of the glasses in the window of Doctor Anna's office, Daniel make-believes that he is wearing many different kinds of glasses.
Moving on, they find Lady Elaine Fairchilde having a sidwalk sale where Daniel and Prince Wednesday try on a few hats before Doctor Anna arrives with Prince Wednesday's newly repaired glasses.
At the post office, Mr. McFeely gives Daniel a package from Grandpere. Inside, Daniel finds a new red sweater but chooses to keep wearing his blue sweater instead.
